Have oil pressure checked to see oil pump is faulty.make sure your oil is the right viscosity if too thick that will cause high pressure.if all is good.your pressure gauge is faulty.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

Oilgage is maxed out


Your oil pressure gauge is reading at its highest possible reading? If it really is that high, you need to check the oil level in the crankcase. If it's not really that high, it could be just the gauge.

Engine 3800 for 98 Park ave. shows oil pressure too high on the gauge. what could cause this


Sounds like your oil pressure sending unit is faulty! When you turn the key on, is the gauge reading low, then you start it and it pegs out? if so, the sending unit has failed.

Sounds to me like it could be a bad oil sending unit or gauge. I would take it in to a shop and have them test the oil pressure with their equipment.
If they tell you the pressure is good try changing the oil sending unit first then if that don't work, replace the gauge.

The oil pressure sensor light keeps coming on after the engine has heated up and driven awhile. We have replace the oil pressure switch but keep having the same problem? Any more suggestions?


. THATS USUALLY A SING OF THE OIL PUMP GOING BAD/WORN BEARING AT CRANK CAMS . WHEN ENGINES COLD THE OIL IS THICKER AND WHEN THE OIL HEATS UP IT GET THINNER CAUSING LOW ENGINE OIL PRESSURE. IF USUALLY THE LIGHTS COMES "ON" AT IDLE AT NORMAL TEMPETURE AND IT GOES AWAY WHEN ACCCELERATED. THOSE ARE SINGS OF WEAK OIL PRESSURE. ALSO CHECK THE THE WIRE TO THE OIL PRESSURE SENDER FOR RUBBING OR WEAR. HOPE THIS HELPS. THE BEST WAY TO BE SURE IS GETTING A OIL PRESSURE TESTER AT HARBOR FREIGHT THERE LIKE $20 OR SO AND TEST THE PRESSURE. AN AVERAGE SHOULD BE ABOVE 15PSI AT IDLE AND HIGHER 2500 RMS AT 22,000 35,000 PSI GOOD. HOPE THIS CAN HELP OR GIVE YOU A LEAD OR HLEP... SEND ME A FEEBACK PLEASE THANKS

Low oil presure


perform a master oil pressure test. this is done by removing the oil pressure sending unit and installing a oil pressure gauge. if the reading on the test gauge is ok, the sending unit needs to be replaced. if the pressure reads low on the test gauge, there may be excessive bearing wear or you may have worn valve guides. good luck!
