1 Answer

82,025

Warmed up oil pressure would idle at like 20, 25 lbs, up to 40-60 lbs. when rpms are up. If you think you have a oil pressure issue, first take out the oil pressure sending unit. There is a screen under the oil sending unit that needs to come out and be cleaned or replaced. Oil pressure sending unit would be out anyway, so you might as well replace it also.
