SOURCE: high oil pressure

You can't go by the gage on the dash, you need to hook up a manifold gage to get an accurate reading. Did you check the oil filter bypass valve AKA oil relief valve?

Possible dsmsge from driving weeks with high oil pressure? btw 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali


No damage will occur. Have you checked the oil pressure with a manual test gage? If not do that and please understand GM oil pressure gages are prone to reading high pressure when the sender is defective.

Oil pressure on my 1996 Dodge Ram pickup is running low even though my oil level is fine


have the oil pressure checked with an independent gage as sometimes gages in the dash don`t show correct pressure. how long has it been since the oil was changed as oil when it gets dirty it thins out and can affect oil pressure. if you don`t hear any ticking with the motor running chances are the pressure is either good or just a little low. testing oil pressure with an independent gage will tell the tale.

Replacing engine mounts for 1996 vw cabrio


Autozone will have them or on the web, Autohauz. Cheaper on the web... just search for "motor mounts vw cabrio" or go here: http://catalog.worldpac.com/ibusiness/JSP.v.1.01/wizard.jsp?header=http://egermanparts.com/header.txt&footer=http://egermanparts.com/footer.txt&partner=ipb&clientid=egermanparts.com&baseurl=http://egermanparts.com/&cookieid=0244471252MG177XUO&year=1996&make=VW&model=GOL-C-001&category=All&part=Engine+Mount&appTransmissionType=_any

There are 4 (one front, one back, one left and one right). The driver's side and the front are hard to get to. They will be a combination of metal and rubber. Do not buy used! Weak motor mounts are just as bad as broken ones.

Good luck!
