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

SOURCE: Where's the oil pressure gauge on a harley 2003

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.

Good Luck

What is the oil pressure at idle on 2001 harley electra glide


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.

Only has about 10# oil pressure at 3000 rpm


Do an oil pressure test with a know good oil pressure tester gauge. If really low etc could be thinned out/contaminated/old oil and/or defective pressure release valve OR more.

Low oil pressure only at idle


Hi Anonymous, remove oil pressure sending unit a install a mechanical oil pressure gauage. At normal engine operating temperature 230 degrees run engine at 2000 RPM oil pressure should be 30-38 psi. at and idle 3-8 psi. If you get these readings every thing is ok and you need to replace the sending unit. Good luck

2001 GMC safari engine noise- sounds low, like spun rod bearing. BUT.... seems actually QUIETER under a load. NOISIER at idle. Oil pressure is low at idle. I was trying to do a "relearn...


not a bearing problem as they get noisier under load or rpms , not quieter
oil pressure always drops around 10% of full pressure at idle more if the oil is of low viscosity ( 5w10 or 15) use a mechanic stethoscope to determine noise source at idle

Low oil pressure on my 93 dyna wide glide


Are you using 20W50 oil in your bike? If so, your oil pressure is probably fine. Harley engines do not hold a lot of oil pressure because they are built with roller and needle bearings, not shell insert type bearings. Since there is a gap between the contact of the roller bearing, the oil just flows freely though them. As long as your hydraulic tappets are not clattering loudly, you have enough oil pressure. I've seen many oil pressure gauges read zero when the engine is hot and idling. However, if you think your oil pressure is too low, the only thing you can do is to replace the oil pump.

Good Luck

Easiest or best way to add an oil pressure gauge to an 88 harley 883 sportster..


to add an oil pressure gauge, you'll need to put the pressure pickup tube at the same place where the oil pressure sending unit is now.

I've seen oil pressure gauges on Big Twins but I don't recall seeing one on a Sportster. I guess I ought to warn you that installing an oil pressure gauge on a Harley engine can cause you to have a heart attack. Why? Because when the engine is idling hot, it has very little oil pressure. The oil pressure sending unit is designed to turn the oil pressure light off at four, yes I said four pounds of oil pressure. The Harley engine is a high volume low pressure system. The reason for this is because it has roller bearings on the crankpin, not shell bearings like *** bikes. So, unless you get an extremely accurate gauge, when your bike is idling on a hot summer day, your gauge will read zero.

Besides, you have the best oil pressure gauge one could ask for in that engine. They're called hydraulic tappets. If you lose oil pressure, they'll let you know very quickly. They'll rattle so loudly that you'll be forced to turn the ignition off.
