1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo oil pressure low on ilde

1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo leaking oil at the oil pressure sending unit alerted by low oil pressure red light. Cleaned and retightened the oil pressure sending unit, filled the oil to the correct level....NO red light until the engine was at its (hot) operating temperature when the red light REAPPEARS on idle only.
I do not have the tools to measure oil pressure and I cannot find any description anywhere to check oil pressure or fix the problem...that oil pressure low ..warning..red light at idle.
Thank you.

I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

Replace the low oil pressure indicator sender switch.
If you still get a low oil alarm at idle, there is some other engine problem causing it.
Get the oil pressure checked with an independant gauge before proceeding further.

Chrysler new yorker only low oil pressure


if you are full of oil, this could be as easy as an oil pressure sending unit, which you may see near the oil filter.

It could be an oil pump going bad, and you will be looking at a mechanic shop at that point.

I would check the connection of the oil pressure sending unit to make sure it's plugged in properly.

People have told me the pressure quit working after an oil change, and I found that in most cases, whoever changed the oil damaged that sensor.

1987 new yorker 2.2 turbo oil pressure low on ilde


Hook up a mechanical test gage to the oil pressure port where the oil pressure sender goes and verify the oil pressure is at least 20-30 pounds at idle engine hot. If the oil pressure checks ok on the test replace the oil pressure sender. You should be able to borrow this gage from Autozone or O'reilly auto parts with a deposit and a credit card.

Whats the purpose of an oil pressure switch can it determine weather oil leaks from your grand prix or not?


The oil pressure switch or sending unit is a unit that receives an electrical signal showing what your cars oil pressure is.And yes it does partially does let you know when there is a problem somewhere in the oil system.For example if your filter gets clogged up your oil pressure will go down and then go up when you accelerate.If there was a leak in the system first you would probably see the leak And if the oil pump or oil pump shaft were to break you would have no oil pressure.So you can see the importance of having an oil pressure switch.I feel there are 2 guages that are important to watch are your oil guage and water temp guage they can tell you allot about how your car is operating.

94 f350 7.3l turbo diesel looses oil pressure as rpm increase


Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

if your pressure is too low this fix is quite expensive and not worth for older cars, so the first thing you should try to keep it running is to use THICKER OIL (W20-50 or such), + oil stabilizier (any good oil additive). I tried it in my Jeep,- helped right away.. Good luck

Low oil pressure


I believe your sending unit is located on the top of the block, towards the fire wall. You can get an inexpensive pressure test gauge and put in place of your sending unit. It should be a 1/4" NPT fitting. Does the pressure gauge fluctuate between low and high RPM? If so, chances are that your oil pump may need to be replaced.
