First make sure the wire is connected to the sensor :)short the wire to the ground and gauge will show max
if no oil pressure the engine will make noise.If no ticking noise open the filler cap and you will see oil splashing on rocker arms( pressure is OK) if no oil on rocker arm inspect the oil pan for damage.Remove the oil pan and measure clearance from oil pan and strainer(min.1/4 in.)

90 hp Mercury 4 stroke Oil indicator light won't quit flashing


First of all, check your oil level.
Second, you'll find on the engine, port side, above the air intake canals ( just before the throttle body ) a oil pressure switch. Disconnect that switch, goes the light off? If no, it's an electrical issue, check if that wire isn't damaged and shorted to earth somewhere.
If YES, then remove the oil pressure switch and connect a presure gauge on the engine. 0 to 5 bar. Start the engine, you should obtain more than 1.5 bar pressure. If OK, replace the oil pressure sensor. If no pressure, have the engine rebuild.

Where is oil pressure switch on 1992 ford 150


Most oil pressure switches/sending units were located are near the oil filter. Did you have the same symptoms before you changed the oil pump? How many miles on your engine? As the bearings (main, rod, camshaft, etc) wear, the gap where oil flows through gets larger, and oil pressure will decrease. If a direct reading gauge shows very low oil pressure at idle, it's time to rebuild or replace the engine.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

Oil pressure light on after rebuild on the engine ...why?


Never start a new built engine without turning it over a while to build oil pressure first. Then if there is no oil pressure you either have a bad pump, gauge, or possibly a clogged filter.

1998 ford explorer oil pressure


Knocking in engine and low oil pressure usually means bad main bearings. May have been caused by bad oil pump or just worn out bearings due to high mileage. If this is problem needs engine or rebuild old engine.

1995 Ford Econoline 150 with 302 engine. Oil pressure indicator starting dropping when idle speed went down, Had a new oil pump and sending unit replaced, still does the same thing. Has 190K on it, now as...


When you had the pump replaced did anyone look at the rod and main bearings? 99% of all low oil pressure problems I've seen has been directly related to bearing wear, not a bad oil pump.
Replacing the pump will give you slightly better pressure temporarily but that won't last very long.
Verify the actual oil pressure using an external mechanical gauge. If it's low (likely it is) go back into the oil pan and use plasti-gage on the bearings to measure clearances.
In reality though, in an engine with that many miles, it's best to either completely rebuild or replace it though.

No oil pressure and a knocking noise to accompany this.sometimes the knocking goes away when the oil pressure gauge will flutter slightly.


First thing is to NOT attempt to run or drive it. Knocking is a sure sign that serious engine damage is starting to occur. Either your oil pump has failed or your engine is worn out. Take the car to a shop and have the engine checked out. A mechanical oil pressure gauge will give an accurate reading of how much oil pressure is actually there. A compression test will let you know the condition of the rest of the engine.
I would take it to an engine rebuilding shop for an assessment, just check to see if they have some experience on imports. They would be the most knowledgeable on what to do from here. You may be able to simply install a new oil pump and be good to go, or you may have to look at rebuilding or replacing the engine, but a few bucks right now at a professional shop could save a lot of time and money being wasted.
Hope this helps.

Low oil pressure 93 GMC P/U w/350 motor w/205,000 miles gauge


While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

03 gmc envoy with 5.3 140000 miles. Oil pressure reading fluxuates between 0 and 40. When problem first started pressure read 80. When vehicle was new it stayed at midpoint (40) vehicle has plenty of oil....


There may be a loose wire or the gauge or sending unit may be going bad. The first thing I would do is to hook up a temporary oil pressure gauge, not using the old one at all. With this watch gauge while driving and see what readings you get. If the readings still jump around you have a pump that is getting weak and failing, If that is the case the pump should be replaced, but with high milage you may consider rebuilding the entire engine. If the readings stay normal start checking for a loose wire at gauge or sender. Then check sender, then gauge and replace as needed.
