Have a gauge hooked up to low pressure fuel pump and it shows it works but high presssure one doesnt


Check to see you have oil up to full on dipstick . The high pressure pump picks up oil at the top level so if oil starts to get to low engine will stop before engine damage . The high pressure pump is what makes the injectors fire . Also check the wires that go thru valve cover some times they burn up and you can smell the burn thru the oil filler cap .

Oil pressure gauge is reading zero


Could be the gauge on the dash. If you really had no oil pressure the engine would be very loud.
A mechanic would check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to verify.

How can i fix the oil pump


see this tips and fix it. God bless you
The oil pump supplies oil to lubricate your engine. If the oil pump is worn or is not turning, the engine will suffer a loss of oil pressure, which may result in engine damage or engine failure.
The first sign of trouble may be a low oil pressure warning light, a drop in the normal reading on you oil pressure gauge (if your car has one), or the appearance of ticking or clattering sounds from your engine.
As a rule, most engines only need about 10 PSI of oil pressure for every 1,000 RPM of engine speed. Oil pressure will read higher than normal when a cold engine is first started because the oil is thick. Oil pressure will gradually drop as the engine warms up and the oil thins out. So normal oil pressure on a warm engine cruising down the highway is typically 30 PSI up to 45 PSI.
SYMPTOMS OF OIL PUMP TROUBLE
The first thing you should do if any of these symptoms occur is to stop your car, turn off the engine, let it sit for a few minutes, then check the oil level on the dipstick. If the oil level is at or below the ADD line, add a quart of oil to bring the level back up to the full mark. Add as much oil as is needed to raise the level to the full mark. Then restart the engine. If the warning light remains on, or the oil pressure reading does not climb back up to its normal range, or the engine noise does not go away, you may have a bad oil pump.
The other possibilities include a bad oil pressure sending unit, or a problem with the oil pressure warning light circuit or oil pressure gauge.
OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT
If the engine is NOT making any unusual noises and seems to be running normally, and the oil level on the dipstick is FULL, but you are still getting a low oil pressure warning light or low gauge reading, the fault could be a bad oil pressure sending unit.
The oil pressure sending unit is mounted on the engine block. On some applications, there is a spring-loaded pressure-sensitive diaphragm with a switch inside the sending unit. This switch completes the circuit to the low oil pressure warning light if oil pressure drops below a certain threshold. The unit may stop working if the diaphragm inside fails, if the switch is stuck, if the small hole that allows oil to enter the sending unit becomes plugged, if there is a loose, corroded or broken wiring connector at the sending unit, or there is a fault in the wiring circuit between the sending unit and warming light.
On vehicles that have an oil pressure gauge (electronic, not mechanical), the oil pressure sending unit has a small rheostat inside that sends a variable voltage signal to the oil pressure gauge when the diaphragm moves. A worn spot on the rheostat or any of the other problems just described for the simple pressure-type oil pressure switches can cause a problem.
FORD'S FAKE OIL PRESSURE GAUGE
On many Ford vehicles that were built from 1980 through the 1990s, the oil pressure sending unit has two switches, a low pressure and a high pressure. These vehicles also have an oil pressure gauge, but the reading on the gauge is not a true indication of real oil pressure. As long as the pressure to the sending unit is between high and low, the gauge will read normal. If oil pressure drops and trips the low pressure switch, the dash gauge will now read low. Or, if oil pressure goes up and trips the high switch inside the sending unit, the dash gauge will read high. Consequently, don't rely on the oil pressure gauge for an accurate reading in these vehicles. It is only a gross indication if the oil pressure is low, normal or high.
OIL GAUGE PROBLEMS
If the engine is NOT making any unusual noises and seems to be running normally, the oil level on the dipstick is FULL, and you have replaced the oil pressure sending unit but are still getting a low oil pressure reading on the dash gauge, the fault could be in the wiring circuit between the sending unit and gauge, or the gauge itself might be bad.
Check the wiring connections on both ends as well as wiring continuity between the sending unit and gauge. If no wiring faults are found, hook up a pressure gauge directly to the oil pressure port on the engine and check oil pressure with the engine running. If the engine-mounted gauge shows normal oil pressure but the dash gauge is reading low, the problem is a bad dash gauge.
On the other hand, if the engine-mounted pressure gauge reads low and you have done all of the above, chances are the oil pump is worn, or it is not picking up enough oil because of a restriction or blockage in the pickup screen in the bottom of the crankcase.
OIL PUMP PICKUP PROBLEMS
The pickup tube has a screen on the end to prevent large chunks of anything bad that ends up in the crankcase from being sucked into the pump. But we are talking BIG chunks of debris, not normal wear particles or carbon or dust or other microscopic-sized abrasive particles that can cause pump wear over time.

Oil pressure high, oil level low


Oil pressure and oil level are two different creatures.

your oil gauge determines oil pressure while the oil can (red light on dash) indicates oil levels.

There are usually two different sensors but can gauge the same types of things. E.G. - If your oil is so low that your pressure gauge is affected this can cause engine failure. Thus--a good rule of thumb is to check your oil once a week as the oil pressure gauge and red oil can may not always work as intended.

I hope this helps!

I noticed my press was leaking oil. so I un-screwed the knob {the pressure or release knob} not knowing that it would pop out, well, i lost a small amount of oil. I put it back in and filled the pump up...


The problem that you are having is because there is air in the hydraulic ram. Their could be two ways to get the air out.If the pressure gauge is on top of the ram remove it and pump fluid until it comes out of the hole where the gauge was. Now all of the air should be out of the ram and it should work properly. Another way of fixing the problem if the hose from the pump goes to the top side of the ram unbolt the pump. Hold the pump above the ram , pump the handle repeatedly you should be able to work the air back into the pump just think it is just like bleeding the brakes on your car .

My vechicle's oil pressure gauge goes down when I slow my vechicle down. and then the check gauges light comes on.


First of all, with the information provided, you need to check to see if you have any oil in the engine. If the "dipstick" shows that you do, you will need to take the vehicle in to a mechanic to have the engine looked at to see if you have a faulty oil pump, or if the engine is damaged internally.If the oil level is low on the "dipstick" all you have to do is top off the oil, and then look for the oil leak.

Oil pressure drops, metal shavings, and somehow my oil level incr


My truck does the same thing, pressure never drops to 0 but drops low, replaced the oil pressure sensor and same thing happened. My oil is always black and has a lot of metal in it, next time you change your oil, pour a quart of transmission fluid into the oil and let it run for 10 minutes or so, this should thin out the oil and possibly unclog some of the ports that may be gummed up. What could have happened with the dipstick is that the old oil was too nasty to drain all the way, with the fresh oil it could have thinned out and raised the level, try the transmission fluid trick and see what happens, next possibility is to have the engine scoped to see whats going on inside

How much New oil should i put in to my 1992 Suzuki Sierra 4x4 Cheers Neil B


First make sure your drain plug and filter are installed and tight, then add 2 liters of oil and check to see if there is any showing on the dipstick. Add one liter at a time and recheck the dipstick. Bring the level up to the full mark on the dipstick. Now start the engine and observe the oil light(turn off) or pressure gauge(pressure goes up) then turn off engine. If neither happens after about 10 seconds, shut off engine and check for leaks or other malfunctions. If all is O.K. then recheck oil level on dipstick. It should be somewhere between the upper and lower level, usually indicated by crosshatch marking. Add oil to bring oil level to full mark. Small amount at a time. Most small vehicles only take about 3.5 to 4 liters.

My oil warning light is on and my oil pressure guage has dropped. what is wrong is it ok to drive to a garage to fix it and is it expensive to fix my vehicle is a 1994 nissan skyline 2ltr 6cylinder vehicle


I would see if the oil sensor on the block or filter area is plugged in. If it is then I would just go ahead and change it. If the light is still on then you might want to have an oil pressure test done. If you don't have a pressure gauge that screws into the sensor hole, then you might want to have it done to make sure the pump is still good. Let us know how it goes.

95 jeep wrangler: gauge indicates 0 oil pressure


Wire on oil sending unit may have fallen off or sensor itself may have gone bad. Check both. If engine has no tapping noises, likely it's not a pressure problem.
