Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic
At idle no oil pressure
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, start by checking oil level in tank and it is between the add and full mark. With engine at normal operating temperature 180-230 degrees and the use of a 10 micron synthetic media oil filter, oil pressure will be 30-38 psi at 2,000 RPM and 3-5 psi. at idle. The oil pressure light is designed to come on at 2 psi. or less. To accurately test oil pressure remove oil pressure sending unit and install known good oil pressure gauge that reads 0-50, there might possibly be some plumbing required for hard to access points. If you are out in the middle of nowhere and there is no cell phone service and your oil pressure gauge isn't working and your oil pressure light is burned out, despair not, you still have one last line of defense left HYDRAULIC LIFTERS.as long as those tireless workers are quiet, you have oil pressure, maybe not much, but enough to get you down the road at a slow to moderate speed using the least amount of RPMS as nessary. Good luck

The sending unit for the oil pressure light is located down at the oil pump. Look under the engine on the right side. The oil pump is located between the engine and the frame.

Tips for a great answer:
30-38 psi (207-262 kN/m squared) at 2000 rpm and normal operating temperature of 230 degrees F (110degrees C)
At idle it can be very much lower (10 to 15 is not unusual and can even be lower than that sometimes) as volume rather than pressure is the key in lubrication of the rolling bearings which these engine utilize rather than plain bearings. This is why there is no published idle oil pressure.
