SOURCE: oil pressure gage

At idle, at operating temp is there any ticking from top end of engine? Are there any knocking noises brom bottom end?
If no noises, change oil and add some Marvel oil to clean out galleys. If that dosent work, change oil pressure sendingf unit. Also, if you have a mechanical oil pressure gauge, hook it up and take a direct reading. Oil pressure (in any vehicle) at idle should NEVER be less than 15psi. Generally in 4.0 jeep engines it's never less than 30, with a high reading at driving rpm of about 40-60! (but, you did not mention what engine you have)

Get it checked with a mechanical gauge. Replace sensor.

SOURCE: 1996 oldsmobile aurora oil pressure

The Aurora is a low pressure oil system. The only solution available at this time is to increase the oil weight. I went o straight 30W to solve the idle alarm issue. Some use 20W oil and that works too.
With 20W you will be at 80 to 90psi cold then drop to 20-30psi hot.
I first replaced the oil pressure gauge and it was worse. I put the original back in and it was better. Then went to 30W and all is fine.
Running it that way for a few years now.

SOURCE: 1991 Caprice No reverse. Moves in neutral. All forward gears OK.

This is Ron out of Vero Beach Florida. I have been doing trannys for years. The problem you described is caused (more than likely) by a seized clutch pack. Depending on the trans, and your car should be RWD with a 700r4 tranny, there are several sets of clutch packs and at least one band. Automatic transmissions rely on fluid pressure to "engage" the correct set of clutch discs, at the right time , to engage and change gears. I have seen in the past, where a customer parks his car for the evening and the next morning, no move. What happened?? More than likely, a clutch pack was on it\'s way out but cause the car was hot the plates were free, but after cooling, they can weld themselves together and actually "lock-up". In the morning you know the end result. Your tip on "moves in Nuetral" is the give away. Ron

When I drive oil pressure goes up 10 every 1000 rpms

Nothing wrong with that, your oil pump is geared to the crank shaft. The higher the revs the more oil is being pumped by the oil pump. The oil galleries are a fixed size so as the flow increases the pressure rises to force the increased flow through the same size oil galleries. You should also notice that you oil pressure is 10 to 20 psi higher when the engine is first started and every thing is cold.

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

I looked at info for 1500--5.7L engine.
6 psi @ 1000 rpms
18 psi@2000 rpms
24 psi @ 4000 rpms

Sometimes, you can use analog gage in place of oil pressure sending unit and double check oil pressure that way. If oil pressure is actually low, if high mileage engine, I doubt replacing oil pump will help. I just wanted to add, check oil pressure engine warmed up.

Pressure building in crankcase & blowing oil out the dipstick pipe and other weak seals. Appears that parts off the breather are missing although the diaphram seems to be complete. Idling and low revs...

This may be due to the breather system being restricted. Have the system checked by a specialist as some systems are hard to diagnose.

It could be the engine is worn. If too much combustion pressure gets by the piston rings this will cause pressure to eject engine oil.

If the breather is fine then an engine leak down test is called for. This involves pressurising each cylinder and measuring how much air escapes. This involves using a Leak Down tool...consists of two pressure gauges and an air line and someone who knows how to use one.

A compression test will not tell you how worn your engine is. Compressions of 140 to 160 psi are possible even on a worn motor.

Leak Down readings should be below 12%...ideal would be 2% to 6%.... if higher than 20% it means you don't have an engine in there !

Low oil pressure when idling

how low is it it is normal for it to be about 20 psi when its hot an idling.. if u rev in neutral an it goes up thats good. if it dosent well thats either low oil, bad sensor, or bad oil pump.

I have on oil psi put in a new oil psi sensor and new oil pump and still when you rev the motor you get 18 to 20 psi what could it be

Hello, This information is from the 1995 cadillac 4.6 Northstar service manual: oil pressure specifications engine at normal operating temp at idle 5 psi at 2000 rpm 35 psi Based on experience you would be better off putting another engine in your car. You can not turn the crankshaft on a Northstar engine. It sounds like the main and connecting rod bearings are worn beyond specs and also the cam bearings. You would spend more on parts compared to cost of another engine. That is my recommendation.

you may have a bad oil filter, the best check is to install an oilpressure guage to find out what the actual pressure is, or maybe you put in too light an an oil,

Loose oil pressure when engine slows down

That's normal in most cases, depending how low it goes. 40 psi approx when driving, 20 psi approx when idling ?
