What oil pressure are you guys seeing? At Idle? At road speeds?
I'm normally see about 110psi at idle, and the gauge essentially pegs at 120 at anything above idle. I suspect that the sender or gauge are off....I wanted to know if this is abnormal
I can't tell you how much I like the idea of having anyone pulling the dash apart. It always seems that a new squeek develops that you can't get rid of after such a procedure. So...if this is abnormal, I hope its the sender.
110 psi at idle? If your oil pressure was that high you would leak (probably gush) a quart per minute. Definitely not correct.
I have a '92 with 185,000 miles. My oil pressure, as checked with a manual gauge, shows about 30-35 psi at idle, while hot (10w-30). At higher rpm it runs about 40-50 psi. Amazing isn't it? That 3800 is one hell of a build!
