Hi,

Your post "oil pressure dropped" could be interpreted two ways:

  • If at IGN ON (not START), it goes up then back down, the gauge is measuring the oil level, therefore it is telling you that it is time to add oil into the engine;
  • When the engine is running, the gauge indicates the oil pressure. Revving the engine should increase the needle position. As a rule of thumb the higher the oil pressure, the better (within specs). A low reading at idle RPM indicate little or no oil in the crankcase and/or there is a major fault internally to the engine. In some instances it could just be the oil pressure sensor/sender. To verify, another gauge (a mechanical one that uses a copper tubing and attachment/adapter) to sample the pressure is used. Depending on the age of the vehicle and its usage, this may be an indication of major repair work requirement.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello,
Try to check for any oil leak, if you find so then fix it..If not then try to check the oil filter!!...the filter could be partially clogged or it could be coming apart on the inside, plugging up oil passages...
Thank you!!..

Please post back on how things turned or for further assistance..

Kind Regards!!..

Oil pressure dropped to o Rev it up oil pressure goes up .let off throttle oil pressure drops back t o. All so had light knoc.


Hi,it sounds from what you are saying that you have a isue with the oil pump,and the noking could be where the oil pressure is down so oil is not lubricating the bearings,to run it in this state could couse intunal damidge to the engine,you need to get this checked out.

00 lincon navigator 5.4 oil pressure drop's low and light comes on , engine idles rough when pressure drops ,then pressure return s to normal range ,light goes out ,engine runs perfect. Is it my oil


Sounds more like an engine idle issue than a oil pressure issue. If the engine idle drops too low, the oil pump cannot provide sufficient oil pressure. If there is no oil light when the engine is idling normally, then there is no problem there.

Why is my 2007 envoy denali oil pressure dropping?


check oil level in sump. You may have to remove the sump to check for cracked oil pick up line . Check oil pump pressure regulator . replace oil filter as it may be blocked and dropping the oil straight back to the sump.

Why is oil pressure gauge dropping below 40 psi.


Usually two reasons why oil pressure drops over time,worn engine parts,old oil.Try an oil change with new filter I sometimes use an additive like Restore.Over time the oil will become thinner and less viscous leading to a drop in oil pressure.

Oil pressure gauge shows low / high / middle changed sensor did


Hello mb4494: My name is Roger and I will help you. If by changing the oil pressure sending unit the problem did not change. I would perform a oil pressure test. This is done by removing the oil pressure sensor and inserting a oil pressure gauge. This can be done by yourself or by a repair shop. This needs to be done on a cold engine. Start the engine and observe the oil pressure cold.as the engine warms up observe the pressure. The pressure will drop off as the engine warms up.Should the oil pressure drop below 10 to 12 PSI. then you have internal engine trouble. More then likely a bearing problem. Try dropping the truck into gear and see what the pressure drops off to. Again if the pressure drops below 10 to 12 PSI. you have a problem. I would also check to make sure you have the correct oil switch. a truck with a oil light uses a oil pressure switch. with a gauge you would use a oil pressure sending unit. Sorry for the long reply but want to make sure you check the pressure correctly. Please rate the quality of the answer as this is how we know the answer was correct. Thank You for using Fix Ya.

Car stalls when oil pressure drops...20 minutes to restart


No it is a fail safe. When your oil pressure drops below (on most cars) 30 psi your computer will shut your fuel pump down until you either let it sit for a while and it resets or until oil pressure builds again. Sorry!

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.
