SOURCE: oil pressure gauge reads past 80

now unless there is a very loud knocking of the motor which would mean that the engine's top end was not getting any oil I would say that your oil guage is sprung and needs replacing. a high pressure rating would indicate a restriction in the oil flow pasdt the sending unit or a plugged oil filter. if the filter were plugged you would know it because your enging would run tight in no time at all. replace the guage itself... please rate this........thanks

SOURCE: instrument gauges are reading not accurate. oil

This model always this problem, usually after about 90,000 miles and the other instruments will eventually follow. There are companies that will repair this for you just use google (instrumentclusters.com) to find them. I was charged 185.00 for the repair... GM wanted over 500.00!

SOURCE: my temperature gauge is not registering and my

A faulty temperature sending unit. It should be located on or near the thermostat housing. If any of your gauges reads zero, the check gauges light will come on. Sometimes even if the fuel gauge gets too low, it will trigger the light. It may be the connection at the sending unit. It may have become loose so wiggle it and make sure it is securely connected to the sending unit. If the temp. gauge needle pegs at the top of the gauge, it means the sending unit has grounded out and is faulty. If it jumps, reads off or not at all it could be a faulty sender or a bad connection.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

Temperature pressure gauge and oil pressure gauge not working


simplify. you just were in the engine compartment... did something get disturbed, unplugged, look at the temp sender and the oil sender, they have been the most likely causes of concerns of this type since electric indicators replaced gauges years ago. does your system have a tripminder or indicator for changing the oil? does it get a reset during the service? if yours has that there may be a mode that its in...but not fully reset.. then theres a question about..does your body control ecu have a self test mode? or your powertrain control? these can be read for codes for free as a preliminary check at a local parts store.

My 2005 Nissan Armada is reading oil pressure abnormally high. The gauge is maxed out.


  • Well it could be a bad oil pump or a bad Oil Sending Unit. If you have an oil pressure gauge you can pull the sending unit and stick the pressure gauge in there and see what the reading is. I would thing 60PSI would be suitable.
  • I believe this Oil Sending Unit is on the front (possibly the back) of the oil pan.
  • Just remove the connector and put a wrench (or a deep socket) and twist it out and replace with a new one.
  • Make sure the oil filter is snug and not leaking as well.
  • Check your oil level too and make sure it is properly filled.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

The oil pressure guage on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee is registering 0. My oil was just changed and I don't see any indication of oil leaking anywhere. Could it be the sensor?


First off I wouldnt drive your car until you make sure that you have indeed oil pressure and that the gauge is a false reading, driving your car if in fact it has no oil pressure will severly damage your engine, but firstly i would check the oil pressure switch its located on the passenger side of the engine right back from the oil filter make sure the connector is clean and free from oil and corrosion if the connector appears to be in good shape take a paper clip and insert it between the 2 terminals inside the connector your oil pressure gauge should peak at 80 PSI that tells you that your gauge and all related wiring are good and in working condition, secondly remove the oil pressure switch and hook an manual oil pressure gauge up to you engine and start the engine the guage should have a oil pressure reading anywhere from 30 PSI to 55PSI depending on engine temperature if theres oil pressure on your manual gauge replace the oil pressure switch with a new unit, if you still have 0 PSI on your gauge then stop your engine immediatly and start looking at your oil pump and lubricating system for a problem.

How do i prime the oil pump in a 99 e250 5.4L


Oil pump is self priming. You do not need to prime it. If not showing oil pressure, the sensor is probably defective. Make sure oil level is not low. If the vehicles water temperature gauge shows normal when running then oil pump is working fine. If it goes to the overheat mark then you may have defective oil pump, which is rare. Most temperature gauges go past the middle when you first start up but then drop back to normal once the engine thermostat opens up. Hope this helps.

Why won't the oil and temperature gauge work on


you should switch the temperature sensor and oil pressure sensor you had on your first engine,because your new engine must come with the light indicator dashboard so the sensor of your new engine are not compatible with your gauges....lipak!...

Oil Pressure Guage


Oil pressure is read by the sending unit, not created by it. If you replaced the sender and do not see a minimum of 20psi there is something wrong inside the engine.Some people will tell you that 5psi is "safe". In reality, in an otherwise perfect engine it may be but in real world application, the 20psi number is the lowest I'd ever accept in any engine.(at idle) Running pressure is influenced by temperature and oil grade, but this should not vary dramatically.
It is best to attach a mechanical oil pressure gauge to the engine and in that way, you can read the exact pressure. If the mechanical gauge reads the same or very close to what you see on the dash, then the reading is correct and if low you will need further diagnosis to determine why.
