Oil pressure...

My oil pressure is seeming to be higher than normal... I know I need a new head gasket! Could that be causing the pressure to be more high?

Nothing is as high as oil pressure (except cylinders). What is it reading? 40-50 when running, 20 or so when stopped? All fluids clear?

Change the sensor just to be sure.

Buy one from the dealer. Aftermarket parts are usually from China and are of poor quality.

Your oil press is good. Are you smoking or knocking or any other noises that are not right.
