    HOW LOW AND DID YOU PUT NEW OIL IN IT, AND HOW MANEY MILES DOS IT HAVE, AND IT MAY NEED NEW OIL.

  • Jeff Perry Mar 13, 2014

    Yes it new oil, it was about a half quart low, and it has 85,000 miles on it. Yes it is time for a oil change.

Does anybody know what the oil pressure specs for the 2006 crown victoria lx 4.6L at idle and at normal operating temp? Mine is reading between 15 and 25 psi. Has 149,0000 on it.


15 seems low. Ford gives a spec of 40-70 psi with the engine speed @ 2500 rpm engine hot. Most cars I see are around the 25 psi @ idle. If your idle is lower than it should be it will make your pressure lower. This should be a direct reading on a good mechnical engine oil pressure gauge.

My 2005 nissan titan oil pressure gauge just jumped to high. I turned the motor off and turned the key on without starting the motor and it went to normal. Soon as I starred the motor, it jumped right back...


When you say it was "normal" with the engine off and the key on, do you mean normal as 40-50 psi, or normal, as 0 psi since the engine was off and there should be no oil pressure? This is important because if you are reading 40-50 psi with the engine off, it is not surprising that the gauge goes "too high" once you start the engine. If the gauge is at 40-50 psi with the engine off and the key on, then there is a problem with the gauge or the sensor. It is not an overpressure issue. As long as the engine seems to be running normally otherwise and is not clacking internally or other such things that would indicate oil pressure issues, I would feel safe using the vehicle until I could have the oil pressure circuit diagnosed and repaired.

Oil pressure gauge reading


Normal is really any place in the middle of the gauge.
Depending on the age and condition of the engine, and the temp of the oil, oil pressure at idle should be at least 25-35 psi and at cruising speed between 40 and 60 psi.

Oil pressure low at idle


Are you sure the gauge is reading correct? You also didn't mention how many miles the vehicle has. If it's less than 150k I would doubt the motor it worn out, (excessive bearing clearance would cause poor oil pressure even with high volume pump). Chevy's have a lot of issues in the dash with the motors that make the individual gauges work. I would check the oil pressure with a manual gauge. If you don't have the skills to do this yourself, a qualified shop wouldn't charge much to do it. If you find that the gauge is incorrect, there is a guy in MN that rebuilds the instrument cluster for $65 with all new stepper motors (the motors that work the gauges) and replacement of all the bulbs, plus gives it a lifetime guarantee. www.speedometerrepairguy.com.

Engine fan turns itself on the moment I turn the ignition key on even when it is very cold. Also the oil gauge shows engine oil as low even when there is enough oil


The engine fan is controlled by a relay and a radiator temperature switch.
Unplug the switch at the radiator, and if the fan still runs, the relay is stuck on.
If you unplug the relay, it should stop. If not, you did not pull correct relay.

Engine oil gauge is for pressure, not level. And pressure should always drop at idle speeds. As long as it is over 40 psi when at higher speeds, then oil should be ok. Normally at idle, the pressure will drop as low as 7 psi.

2.8l v6 in a s10 blazer. no head gasket problems thus far. wondering why my oil pressure gauge fluxuates? minor rpm change while oil pres guage does its thing why?


Oil pressure always changes with rpm.
At idle you should have around 10 psi, and it should max out at high rpm around 50 psi or so.
You not only can't have as much pressure at idle, but you don't need it either.

1995 Buick Park Avenue when motor gets warm oil pressure starts to drop, no noise in engine, no rattling or knocking the oil pressure just drops what could cause this, oil sending unit/oil pump how can I...


These sending units are known to fail, a replacement is about $25. I had a Bonneville that did the same thing. The only real way to test it is to remove the electronic sending unit and test it with a manual gauge. In my case I had 40 psi of oil pressure with the manual gauge but the dash would read 5-10psi.

Look at the LOW pressure gauge reading when the engine is OFF.

On an 80 degree day, the LOW gauge should read about 56 psi or higher if the A/C system contains an adequate charge of refrigerant.
On a 90 degree day, the LOW side reading should be about 70 psi or higher.
If the LOW gauge reading is less than this, the A/C system probably needs some additional refrigerant.

Oil Pressure Suddenly Reading in High and Low Ranges


either the oil pressure sender is defective or the pressure relief ball valve in the oil pump is sticking, my money would be on the oil pump pressure relief valve ball sticking.
