Oil Pressure Gauge Goes To Max. Can i drive the truck? I am using an 86 engine/ computer and auto meter traditional chrome guages.
Volvo Penta 873198 Marine Boat Diesel Engine Motor 150 PSI from maxmarineoutlet.com
The oil pressure guage goes all the way over when the engine starts and stays there. Most of the time. theres little to be worried about since breakdowns caused by loss of oil pressure is very low on the list of things likely to go wrong with your. I am using an 86 engine/ computer and auto meter traditional chrome guages.
The gauge on my 2001 larado (4.0) goes to max as soon as the key is turned on. I guess its the oil pressure sensor or maybe the.
Oil pressure gauge pegged to max. I also have no resistance on the oil pressure sender unit when measured to ground.
I have a 1991 silverado. I am using an 86 engine/ computer and auto meter traditional chrome guages.
When this is not working it may cause the gauge to display intermittently incorrect readings. sometimes saying 0 pressure and sometimes max (in this case 80 psi) or sometimes it fluctuates erratically. I have pressure. thats the good news.
Can i drive the truck? Install one end of the resistor to the gauge signal input and the other end to the gauge ground.
Most of the time. theres little to be worried about since breakdowns caused by loss of oil pressure is very low on the list of things likely to go wrong with your. Confirm the gauge is ok by using a known good signal use a 47 ohm or 100 ohm resistor to verify the gauge with a known good signal other than 0 ohm (ground):
The Guage Reads Over 100 Psi. Thats The Bad News.
If i hit the gas it instantly goes to max. and when i let off the gas it will drop down to about 25 psi. until i hit the gas again. He says when he drives it. it stays all the way over and goes even further at times. Key on. engine on. gauge drops to zero.
No Warnings Or Anything About Oil Pressure On This Truck.
When i turn the engine on.the gauge resets to 0 then goes back to 80. So. is it the sending unit? Oil pressure gauge reading too high. or over 80 psi while driving. especially at higher rpms.
But When I Accelerate Pretty Hard To Pass Someone. The Gauge Will Go To 0#S.
Also. it would not slowly work its way up. it would peg to max within a second or two. I guess its the oil pressure sensor or maybe the. Ok. dont know whats up with my oilpressure gauge but it reads max all the time.
Can I Drive The Truck?
I also used a diffrent sender from the corvette one. beacuse it will go bad again. I also have no resistance on the oil pressure sender unit when measured to ground. After engine start. the oil pressure gauge works normally. which baffles me.
Cold Weather Can Also Make The Oil Pressure Read Low Until The Oil Pump Has Had A Chance To Deliver The Oil To The Engine.
Oil pressure gauge reading too low. generally below 15 to 20 psi while idling. I have a 2006 suburban that has 75000 miles on it with an oil pressure issue.
