My son's 97 SE 2.5 has no oil pressure when idling. When you give it a little gas, its climbs as you would expect. Driving down the road, its at 40lbs. Other than idling its seems fine. I changed the oil pressure sending unit, no change in oil pressure. I changed the oil pump, no change. Could the gauge be the problem. At this point I'm out of ideas...
At idle, I have zero oil pressure... Even with a few miles under its belt, it should be 15-30 at idle, and 40 - 70 going down the road. Thanks for the tip, I plan on trying a mech pump. I hope to get to that this weekend.
I think there is oil pressure and the gauge is not reading the correct pressure, but I need to be sure.
