Me again, my truck when i start it up in the morning oil pressure is good but the 15 min. ride to work pressure drops down to around 5-10, but i dont lose any power still runs strong


5-10 psi at idle with a warm to hot engine is not unusual with a well used engine but is low enough to ring alarm bells if that is the reading at speed. The manufacturer will issue specifications for an oil pressure test but as a general rule the test would be made at around 2000 rpm and the oil pressure should be around the oil pressure relief valve lift-off pressure which commonly is about 40-45 psi but could be higher or slightly lower.

Oil pressure has little relationship with engine power as long as it still has some...

If the oil pressure is low the cause might be simple or it might be complex and expensive, but whichever it turns out to be, rectification should not be delayed even for a day...

Willthe bluebird sss oil pump fail after 20 years


It certainly could.
Also, at that age, the bearings and clearances could be getting slack so oil pressure would be expected to get lower.
If oil pressure is high when engine is cold, and low at idle when engine is hot, and high at higher RPM with hot engine, then it's more likely engine wear than bad oil pump.
Low oil pressure at high rpm with hot engine indicates failed oil pump. Best not to run when you have this condition.

Oil light on after engine warm-up on idle


this means a mechanical gauge test is required to check actual pressure warm idling if low below 20 psi then the oil pressure pump relief is stuck open or engine bearing are worn

That would be the high speed oil pressure sensor telling you there is a problem with your oil pressure.Your computer is reading insufficient oil pressure to maintain engine integrity above 2000RPM.
There are 2 oil sending units mounted on top of the oil filter housing. I don't have wiring for your year so I can't tell you for sure, but on my 1992 they are brown ( low pressure) and white (high pressure). Check the wiring carefully for cracks or bare spots in the insulation and fix any you find. Also make sure the wiring is good at the plug-ins. VW wiring won't tolerate cracks and often will break right where it meets the plug-in. Also if you have recently moved these wires you may have plugged them in wrong. I would most definately get the pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure guage to be sure of the pressure. If it's good, 29 PSI at 2000 RPM then I would be looking at a bad sending unit. Hope this helps.

Oil pressure guage pushes to 80 when not idling.


In an engine in good condition, oil pressure is a function of RPM. Higher rpm, higher pressure. Whne coasting downhill, in gear, the engine rpm will increase, hence, the oil pressure will go up, as required, and as expected.

There is nothing wrong with your engine, unless the oil pressure goes excessively high under any regime. Low oil pressure is a sign of low rpm, or under load, a sign of worn parts.

this one is difficult to diagnose without putting a oil pressure gauge on the engine to check oil pressure ,hopefully ??its just the switch but ??? ...If oil pressure is low then change the oil and filter and put in a can of STP oil treatment and trade it in quick

Oil light comes on; engine rattles/clicks at higher rpms


have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure test gauge to verify the true oil pressure, this could just be a oil pressure gauge sending unit problem, this is very common.

Oil pressure light on


Yes I believe there is!! I can't think of it right off hand.I will look it up and get back to you. Also have you checked to see if your spark plug seals are worn. I am replacing mine now.I had an issue with the engine light coming on at certain revs!!!
