Metal flakes in the oil are usually bearing material so I suspect the engine is gone. You should have it looked at by a licenced mechanic to be sure. Tow it, don't drive because the engine may very well be saved. Hope this helps.

Whats oil pressure on 3.1 isuzu


4psi idle (bad) and revving to 3k does what, you didnt say.
what was idle RPM 800 or 400>?
the answer is different by hot and cold oil
and oil type, no type stated (do not say brands) 10w30?
running 0w are you>?
and is as low as 8psi hot. at idle ,that is if idle speed is at spec.
is it?
and 3000 rpm would be like 25psi hot, and more cold.
the max pressure will be the pump regulator value.

here is the sensor spec.

The sensor closes when the oil pressure drops to between 4-7 psi (28-48 kPa).

the oil type and bearings clearances (in total) dictate pressure.

3,1 CPC engine spec is.

Oil pressure gauge drops to zero at idle. Do I have a switch or senzor and where is it?


If your oil pressure is dropping to zero at an idle, then I would quit driving the vehicle. It is very possible that the engine is low on oil. Or that the oil pump is going bad. If you continue to drive the vehicle, you could ruin the engine. There is a oil pressure sending unit that could be bad. But if the oil pressure goes up when it is above an idle, then the sending unit is probably ok.

Changed intake manifold gaskets, and while doing so, spilled a bit of coolant that was left in the intake in with the oil. Changed the oil before I even started my truck, and since then, I will have oil...


It sounds like oil pressure switch is bad. You said you changed? To clarify, your oil pressure switch is also a safety item that shuts down ignition when oil pressure drops. Try an oil pressure gauge (hand held) to relieve your nerves about engine seizure. Make sure you're not getting to much fuel in engine also, that will dilute oil to a thin viscosity and show low oil press.

Oil pressure gage drops down to zero when i go to stop


Might be a bad Oil pressure sensor or a weak oil pump and when the car idles the pump even if it spins but the power is low but after you push the Gas then the RPMS goes up and the pump spins fast the pressure gets higher. Good luck

The oil pressure gauge drops to zero when i slow down


Have a mechanical gauge hooked up to see that the oil pressure is good or not. If you have no or low at an idle, it can be due to bad oil pump, or worn out bearings.

After 15 miles of running, the oil light will come on.? I have already change my oil and the level its at. in park it will feel like its dying or something.. Could this be a oil pressure sensor?


If the idle speed drops to a low enough point when the oil is hot, then the oil pressure light will come on because the oil pump, which is driven by the engine, is not turning fast enough to maintain proper pressure. You'll need to find out why the idle is dropping and almost dying. It could be a bad IAC valve, dirty throttle valve or something like a vacuum leak. It would be helpful if you had a scan tool to monitor IAC (idle air control valve) counts as this is happening as it would help you find the cause. This may be a job for a shop, but don't let them sell you an oil pump until the low idle problem is fixed.

Oil pressure low when idling. When running engine


first check the oil level if its good then change the oil if you hav'nt done so all ready and add some LUCAS oil stablizer this may help alot if not then the oil pump is most likley going bad and needs to be replced before the engine lacks oil and cause the engine to seize.

Oil pressure on my 98 jeep keeps droping down to 10- 20 lbs .


The low number bothers me...some people will tell you that 10lbs is fine, however this engine generally runs at least 30 at idle hot, sometimes a bit lower but not much.Pressure drop hot is because the oil flows easier when warm, and internal clearances change as well. First, I would have the pressure verified by using a mechanical gauge (yours is electric) If actual pressure is the same as your readings, I'd change the oil and add marvel oil to remove any deposits which may be on the pump pickup screen. Check oil you drained for fuel smell to make sure it's not contaminated.
If pressure does not improve, or drops further, you are going to have to drop the pan and check for bearing wear.(pumps generally don't go bad...wear at the bearings allows pressure to escape) If you find any bearings out of tolerance, change them and the pump as it may have some internal scoring from debris.
