I am having alot of oil leakage from my 1995 ford thunderbird V8 i believe it is a 302


A rear seal is a big job. Best way to confirm is to clean it up real well and see if you can track down the leak.

1999 suburban gage oil pressure is 0 when it warms up. rpm drop to 3-4 rpm when oil pressure goes to 0. Sounds good, runs excellent -no noise. Actually it sound better then most new cars. It is so...


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.

1999 JIMMY OIL PRESSURE drops with RPMs after warm


Normal is 10w30.
If the oil pressure gauge is correct, my guess would be worn engine bearings and / or oil pump.

Its a 1995 chevy k1500 5.7 when in park my oil presure reads fine but when i put it in gear my oil presure drops down to almost stalling


This is odd but somewhat normal. This is the way the electronic gauges register. You can try to replace the oil sender to see if it registers different but as long as it shows some increase in pressure when you rev up you should ok. When you put in gear the RPMS on the tach will drop , thus reducing oil pressure. Also,not knowing when you changed the oil last you may just have worn out motor oil.

Lost oil pressure


i wouldnt worry about it untill it gets lower than 10 lbs,the oil does get thinner as it warms up,if it does get that low warm or cold,then the mains are getting bad.

Chevy 350 - oil pressure drops at high RPMs


yes, my Chevy Suburban did the same thing. i had to re haul the internals. it was time. the rings were in bad condition. i had massive blow by. in your case, you could grab a few more miles by replacing the rings but, i would re haul if possible.

Low oil when engine warms up gmc sierra 1995


30-40 psi of oil pressure is fine for many vehicles including your GMC. I am assuming that the truck has more than 100,000 miles on it and still has the original engine in it. By rule of thumb you only need 10 psi per 1000 rpms in a typical street driven engine to give adequate oil pressure to keep the bearings from oil starvation. The oil pressure is typically higher when initial start up occurs because it is more viscous due to the temperature of the oil as the engines oil warms up the visconsity thins out and the oil flows more smoothly. The drop in oil pressure is a normal occurance. Above 45 is more than required for a daily driven street engine. I believe that the specs on that engine only list 30- 45 psi.

Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8


Thicker oil is all you need. 5w30 is too thin when it warms up and the sensor cant pick up the flow going past. 10w40 should stop all the issues
