Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide

1 Answer

Oil pressure gauge shows a sudden drop to zero, usually when in first gear, then goes back up to normal pressure with shift to second gear. Occasionally, the engine light will come on while accelerating in first gear, and the bike will go into fail-safe mode with no power. Where is the oil pressure sensor located on this bike? 2008 FLHX.

My check gauges light is on, oil hands goes over to zero, moves up, light goes off, when it drops back to zero, gauge light comes back on.


Well the warning light is supposed to come on if any of the gauges display a dangerous condition, such as no oil pressure.
You may have a faulty sending unit for the gauge, or a wiring problem, or the engine may actually be loosing oil pressure when the gauge drops.
You could replace the sending unit as a test, or have someone check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge.

Oil pressure is not constant, while idiling the pressure is less than when accelerating. Usually when the oil pressure gauge fluctuates it is a sign of low oil level.

I have a 96 Chevy Blazer 4x4, when driving last night, I noticed the oil pressure gauge drop to zero. After a few moments, it rose back up to where it is normally (around 70, if I remember correctly). As...


Hello,

Many things can be causing this issue, the worst is an engine problem, but before thinking the worst lets point out some of the not so nasty things.

The sensor could be bad, or the gauge in your Blazer could be going, if you have those vac tube digital gauges be known they do have issues, if you have the normal "arm sweep" gauge they are temperamental as well.

Another often overlooked problem is a clogged or very dirty oil filter causing sudden spikes and or drops.

Some electrical gremlin can be messing with the readout, sudden loss of a ground or feedback over the wires could cause problems.

The sensor for your Blazer is under $50 at Advance Auto Part No. 12553175 , it would be worth it to replace and then see if you still have the problem.

Below is typical oil sensor replacement, tho it's not your Blazer this should give you an idea on what to do.

Hope this helps.

2000 Ford F-150. The oil temp warning light came on and the oil pressure gauge dropped to zero. While accelerating, the pressure gauge goes back to normal and the warning light goes out. No drivability...


Make sure the oil level is correct. If the engine bearings are getting worn, the oil pump is worn or it's screen plugged, that can cause low-RPM weak oil pressure. Try running with 'high mileage' oil at your next oil change and always replace the filter. At some point, you may need to consider overhauling or replacing the engine. Good luck!

Oil pressure gauge reads normal when first starts. as it warms up, gauge goes to zero. If I rev engine, gauge goes back to normal.


Two things...when it reads zero, is there any engine noise (tapping or knocking)? After you rev the engine does the pressure read normal at idle and function normally, or does it go back down? Either way, you should not drive the vehicle 'till you have a mechanical gauge (yours is electro-mechanical) put on there and the actual pressure is tested. The condition may be a bad sending unit, a bad bearing or possible obstructed oil pump screen. The repair is obviously different for each one and the price is as well.

1997 Eagle Talon TSI AWD oil pressure goes from zero to normal and back


Te 1st thing to do is replace the oil pressure guage sending unit, most times that is the problem, if press remains low use a mechanical test guage to verify what the oil pressure is, hook this tester up at the port the sending unit is screwed into.
