When you say it does the same thing the iol level keeps going down that would be a major problem
if the oil pressure keeps droping check the pressure with an external gage do not rely on the factory one if the pressure is good the factory gage could be bad if not you could have a bad oil pump

Why does oil pressure fluckulates


Well it could be a faulty pressure sensor, or you could really have a problem with the oil pump or engine. As the engine warms up the oil gets thinner and pressure can drop if the engine is worn out.
You can check the oil pressure by using a mechanical gauge and bypass the gauge on the dash.

This really sounds like your oil pressure sending unit. You don't say what engine you have but check your oil make sure its full and clear you don't want to loose the engine over this and you should n't but check it.The unit threads into the block some are in the back behind the distubtor some are low on the side in the front but they all thread into the block somewere And usely you need a speical scocket to remove it but there pretty standard one socket fits all of them Check at hte auto parts store when they pull it up on the computer ask to look at the screen and it will show you exactly where yours is good luck

If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

This oil (I'm assuming you mean the light) gauge is telling you not that your oil is low, but that your oil pressure is low. This can happen in high mileage engines after they've gotten worn out, or if the oil pressure sender fails or gets plugged. You'll want to have someone check your oil pressure with a manual gauge to verify which is the problem, and then it'll either mean a new sender, or a different or overhauled engine.

Oil pressure drops, metal shavings, and somehow my oil level incr


My truck does the same thing, pressure never drops to 0 but drops low, replaced the oil pressure sensor and same thing happened. My oil is always black and has a lot of metal in it, next time you change your oil, pour a quart of transmission fluid into the oil and let it run for 10 minutes or so, this should thin out the oil and possibly unclog some of the ports that may be gummed up. What could have happened with the dipstick is that the old oil was too nasty to drain all the way, with the fresh oil it could have thinned out and raised the level, try the transmission fluid trick and see what happens, next possibility is to have the engine scoped to see whats going on inside

Nope, normal on start up is 60 PSI and once warmed up drops to 45 psi. Have the oil pressure checked for a proper reading during start up's when the engine is cold. As for the lifters ticking, that may be a sign that the engine was ran with low oil pressure or no oil and the lifters are damaged, or low oil pressure and the lifters are starved of oil. Try not to drive it and have a proper oil pressure reading, low oil pressure will damage the engine by having the main crank bearing to spin which is a engine replacement. Good luck and keep me posted.

2002 jeep wrangler oil pressure gauge drops


When the gauge is at 0, is there any noise from the engine (tick, knock etc?) I would have someone put a mechanical gauge on there and read true pressure.Your driving pressure seems OK but if the low number is "real" something is wrong!

Oil Pressure drops but returns when i restart


your engine needs flushed .what is going on is idle has less pressure than driving and the sump is picking up dirt and debris but when you turn off or idle the debris falls off the sump.

Oil Pressure Drops While Driving


your oil pump is either weak or there is sludge i9n the oil pan. my adives is to have the oil pan dropped . chances are sludge is the culprit. as the oil get's warm the pressure should only drop slightly but pressure is generally dictated by engine rpm. pumps are gear driven so if it was a bad pump your oil pressure would start out very low at start up.
