I would replace the oil pressure sending unit first as this gauge is electrical.

Still have crankcase pressure issues (pressure at dipstick and oil filler cap) after replacing oil trap.


Sounds like your engine has worn piston rings and that allows combustion pressure to "blow Bye" the pistons and pressurize the crankcase. In short you need an overhaul.

Toyota 1994 oil engine , when the engine cold oil pressure execellent whenever it gets hot oil pressure drops rapidly


A symptom of a engine that is almost 20 years old perhaps 200k+ miles. Mine does the same thing. I don't know how accurate the dash gauge is ... but I haven't been worrying about it. I run 10w-30 year round. I've had the truck over 8 years and 120k miles ... still runs great and the oil pressure gauge works as you describe since I bought it. Unless you are sure you have serious bearing problems or whatever I'd just drive it.

I own a 2000 Chyrsler Voyager 3.3 liter-V6 which is just about to roll on 120k miles. Two weeks ago my oil light would come on and ding repeatedly when I came to a stop at random times. I got an oil change...


Two possibilities, either you have a bad oil sending switch or you may have an oil pump that has worn out. I would try to replace the oil pressure sensor first, it's the easiest and cheapest.

The oil pressure guage is not registering. There is oil in the car and the other guages work normally


check the oild sending unit and make sure it hasent been unplugged or is going bad it is eather on the backside of the motor towards the firewall in the upper center or could be by the oil filter towards the bottom side of motor. it should have 2 or 3 wires running to it connected by a plastic looking connectionon what looks like an 11/8inch nutt or plugg, make sure its plugged in good, it should be dry of oil or water if there is oil on it its gone bad you need to replace. before you start blowing smoke all over the road along with a fair amount of oil. if that isnt whats wrong check owners manual or find one online too see where fusebox is located and witch fuse supplys power to pressure guage.. i hope this helps

No oil pressure


either replace oil sending unit or get a manual oil pressure gauge and screw in to oil sending unit port and visually check with engine running to see if or what the actual pressure is. If 0 pressure registers then bad oil pump. but if good pressure, then you have a bad oil sending unit. also change oil filter.

Service on a 2003 fx35 with 120k miles


Well if you ask Infiniti, everything. From belts to flushing all the fluids and of course plugs and wires. Estimated at $1,000.00 for the works. I would flush the trans. oil and the anti freeze, as well as spark plugs. Also check the belts to make sure no visible cracks.

99 Mercury Mountaineer will not start on 1st or 2nd attempt.


Ever have the fuel pump replaced ? Classic symptom of long crank time ,the check valve in the fuel pump module is bad . Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge to check for fuel pressure bleed off . Fuel bleeds back into the tank. Try spraying carb. cleaner into the throttle an see if it starts sooner ! I would imagine you don't have a fuel pressure gauge to test it the correct way .

1999 honda odyssey-engine stalls while driving-electric is fine-


Maybe the solution
There is a recall on the ignition switch,
My 99 Ody with 120K would suddenly switch off and come back while runing, Take it to dealer and report to Honda, Since out of warranty. The dealer would do the repairs estimated at $100 charge to you.
