Question about 2006 Isuzu Ascender

1 Answer

Oil gauge high

My oil pressure gauge is drifting past the middle point. It's not time for an oil change, but what could be causing the needle to go this way? Someone told me that I may need antifreeze, but I don't know.

The pressure will depend on the temp. of the engine, and the RPM's. Just make sure you have the correct amount of oil in your engine. I wouldn't worry about the pressure until it gets too low, then your almost out of oil. Mine currently stays above mid-point as well.

96 Chevy blazer how do I get out of safe mode ran low on oil now runs an drives but won't let car go fast past 2000rpms


The computing system on your vehicle has no safe mode for running low on oil . The only thing that will happen is the check gauges light will come on.
The oil pressure gauge is an analog device that is located in the IPC. The oil pressure gauge is operated directly by the oil pressure sensor circuit. As the engine oil pressure changes, the resistance of the sensor and the current flow in the oil pressure gauge changes. The current flow in the oil pressure gauge causes the needle to move in order to appropriately display the engine oil pressure. A sensor resistance of 1ohms will display as 0 kPa (0 PSI) and a resistance of 88 ohms will display as 80 kPa (80 PSI ). The IPC also monitors the oil pressure sensor circuit and interprets the current flow in this circuit in order to determine when the engine oil pressure is too low. If the oil pressure is too low, the check gauges tell tale will turn on. The oil pressure sender is located on the left side of the 2.2L. The 4.3L engine, oil pressure sender is located at the top left side, near the distributor/high voltage switch.
Try disconnecting the battery cables an hold them together for ten minutes , reset ECM !

I've had sender replace and all points between there and oil gauge verified OK and all the stepper motors on instrument cluster replaced but still get fluctuating oil pressure needle and warning s


If you check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge and the pressure is steady, the problem would be in the gauge on the dash if you have replaced the sending unit and there are no problems with the circuit.
The mechanical gauge could verify a problem with the actual pressure in the engine.

Check the wires to the senders for grounding Those gauges have a power lead to gauge then to sender. The more the sending unit "grounds" the higher the gauge reading

What should it be for a gmc sierra 1500 5.3 liter oil presssure


If you are using the gauge that came with the vehicle it's accuracy is not great. These gauges were designed so that at a glance you can see the needle is pointing basically to the middle of the dial. As long as the needle is more od less there, you're okay but the numbers mean nothing due to the gauges in accuracy. If you really want to check the oil pressure, the procedure is pretty easy but requires decent equipment as well as the knowledge of where to tap into the pressurized oil system.

The oil pressure guage on my 2006 nissan frontier is reading very high after recently changing the oil, however, the correct amount of oil was added during the change. Furthermore the oil dipstick...


The guage may rise a little when you accelerate the vehicle...but if it is pegged high, and does not fluctuate, when you turn your ignition key on an off...Your oil pressure switch maybe going bad...Goodluck

2001 ranger 4.0l oil pressure sender location? the oil gauge needle has somehow went past the high level and now sits below the low level pin.


the sender should be near the filter., but if the needle is that far off, your problem is in the instrument cluster.

1997 Ford Taurus oil pressure light comes on only when rpm's drop below 700. Have change the oil pressure switch but still happens.


Worn oil pump or cam brgs. Noticed the oil change, what about the oil filter?The oil filter has a bypass in it that will allow unfiltered oil to get past the oil filter if it plugs up. What is your mileage now and how was your maintenance habits? Good Luck. Remember, your cam brgs are the first point of resistance that control your oil pressure, not your rods or mains

Oil pressure gauge reads past 80


now unless there is a very loud knocking of the motor which would mean that the engine's top end was not getting any oil I would say that your oil guage is sprung and needs replacing. a high pressure rating would indicate a restriction in the oil flow pasdt the sending unit or a plugged oil filter. if the filter were plugged you would know it because your enging would run tight in no time at all. replace the guage itself... please rate this........thanks

Oil gauge reading on my dash


Any where from a quarter to half way is fine. After this the oil presser is getting to high. be sure you run 10-30 in the winter and do a oil change in spring time to 10-40 . oil will thin in hot temp. thus using a thicker oil like 10-40 in the summer will help keep oil presser down .
