I have a 2003 ford ranger the oil pressure guage goes to hald way then 0 back to half way truck runs great with no problems


Check the plug first. Look at the tabs in the plugs. They should be touching from one side to the other. See a gap fix or replace the plug. If it looks good, Replace the oil sending unit.

Oil pressure gauge reads zero all the time.


Replace stock sender with basic mechanical gauge to see what really up, or take wire from stock sender and ground it to see if gauge comes up to top. If so, replace sender. (NOTE: Do not use teflon tape or any sealer on threads of new sender as this is the electrical path for ground.)

When i start my 2008 hybrid tahoe the oil pressure starts off at 60 on the gauge but slowly losing pressure while i drive and goes below 20 on the gauge is my pummp going or something else thanks


Tough to say. You would want to use a mechanical gauge to make sure your stock gauge is correct. If oil pressure is low, it could be the pump or worn bearings.

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.

Recently bought a 92 eagle talon tsi awd turbo ''automatic'' and the turbo guage dosen't work the person that i bought the car from said that he replaced the turbo seal that was leaking oil into the...


First things first. Do not bother trying to use the stock boost gauge in that car, it runs off of the ECU and it estimates with small calculations what the PSI may be, the stock boost gauge is ushally 2-3 psi off.

What i recommend is getting yourself an aftermarket boost gauge you can get em used locally on craigslist or a cheapy one from a reputabile ebay power seller. or pick one up for 40-60$ from autozone.

After you do that mount it in a good location, they are very very simply to install, if yours does not come with an instruction paper, you can search boost guage install on dsmtuners.com or yahoo or google.


BUT BY ALL MEANS DO NOT TRY TO FIX THE STOCK GUAGE, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE ACTUAL PSI READING.

Oil pressure gauge reads 80 psi with engine off and pegs running


That is probably a defective oil pressure gauge or a broken oil pressure sender, it reads 80 psi just because that is the maximum value allowed.

Pressure can be verified by reading it with a gauge tool.
If you really have pressure over 70 psi when engine is running then start replacing the oil filter, and check that the oil lines from pump are not obstructed, if there is nothing in there then replace oil pump.

If instead the gauge reads 80 with engine off, that is a defective pressure gauge.

Low oil pressure after engine has heated up.


With the car warmed up, oil pressure should be 1.5 kg/cm^2 @ 800 rpm. If your not getting that much, you may want to get an oil pressure gauge (mechanics type) to check it. 8d774a8.gif Using this type of gauge will give you an accurate reading. The stock gauge may not be very accurate, especially if the sending unit is old.

FUEL PRESURE / FUEL GAUGE


Buick with a 5.0?? OK, regardless, pressure should not drop like that. Possible that fuel filter is full of **** & should be changed, or, you may indeed have a bad pump... (can happen). Sending unit: sounds like you have the leads reversed or the unit is somehow different than the one you replaced.
