Have 1986 Chevy K-30 with a 454. Oil pressure is running about 70lbs. Is that to high&could it be the oil pressure relief valve&where is said valve. Thanks


I don't believe there is a oil pressure relief valve, but there is a pressure bypass located in the neck of the oi filter mount. I would check to make sure that you have the correct oil filter on the motor.

1990 triton oil pressure relief valve location


Hi Lee, There are two oil pressure relief valves on most vehicles. One is fitted onto the oil pump assembly and another onto the oil filter housing assembly. The oil pump pressure relief valve is located at the front of the engine and is accessed via a blind nut on the side of the unit. The bolt is in the form of a cap, which when removed can be seen to be holding down under tension a spring, which in turn presses the valve. If the pressure becomes too high the valve body is pushed upwards and releases an amount of oil, thereby maintaining the required pressure. The valve built into the oil filter housing works in much the same way, but its job is to allow oil circulation in the event of a blocked oil filter. regards John

Idiot light and buzzer for oil coming on at low rpms. Oil level on full. Engine not overheating no excessive noise from lifters. Assuming sending unit or oil pressure switch. Not sure where these are...


It might be the sender unit or you are using an oil grade that is too thin and the oil pressure is down a bit. However, the oil pressure switch is located on the engine block above the sump level and looks a bit like a small spark plug with black insulation. It has one wire coming from it with a press on connector. Replace it and if you have the same problem the next in line would be:-
Oil change and filter (20W-50)
Leaking oil pressure relief valve
Worn oil pump
Worn valve train components
Worn bearings

Oil presure guage jumps from 30 to 60 whats the normal operating range


Oil pressure should be around 30 at idle and then sit at 60 when engine is above 2,000 RPM. If pressure varies at all engine speeds it indicates a sticking pressure relief valve which is located within the oil pump. You could try using some oil flushing product in the engine oil before the next oil change to see if it removes the gunk that is causing the valve to stick. If that does not improve it you should see a mechanic about replacing the relief valve.

My oil psi be on my 2003 chevy astro awd van


The oil pressure should be 60 to 65 psi when engine started cold and at operating temperature should be 40 to 50 PSI at idle and 45 to 60 at higher RPM's with engine at operating temperature. Low pressure could be a faulty oil pressure sending unit or a bad oil pressure regulator valve. Good luck and hope this helps, and you could always have your oil pressure check manually to ensure a correct pressure reading. If you think it could be the oil pressure relief valve (Sometimes) or the check valve (not very often). One is located inside the oil pump and the other in the adapter on the motor that the filter screws on to. If you also have a problem with the oil pressure being erratic when the motor has been running I would be looking at the valves.

1998 FORD 4WD RANGER 128,000 MILES ENGINE LOST OIL PRESSURE OIL PUMP LOOKS GOOD NO SLUG IN OIL PAN, WHY?


Most likely your oil pressure relief valve located on in or nearby pump. Symptoms are oil pressure will drop when warmed up when idle lose all pressure eraticly giving the vehicle gas will bring back pressure and highway driving will bring pressure up until idle again.

Oil leakage


The oil pressure release valve is located behind a large 3/4 lug on the oil pump, if you raise your vehicle and locate the oil filter, look up and to the right of the pressure sender switch, this nut should face to the rear of the of the car, undo it but have a cloth handy as oil will spill quite heavy from this once removed. Inside there will be a spring, remove the spring and to follow will be the valve, if the valve has a problem feed then you will have some trouble removing. Use a scribe to remove along with some (INOX) spray, spray it into the location and leave it for about 20 mins.
