Oil pressure, what is proper?

2 posts in this topic

I am going to test oil pressure and wondering what is good on these? And what suggests needing to replace oil pump and or pick up tube oring?

Thanks

According to the FSM, the 2007 ESV minimum oil pressure spec depends on RPM and is specified for a hot engine, i.e. the temp gauge reading where it usually stays when driving normally. The numbers are

1000 RPM, 6 psi

2000 RPM, 18 psi

4000 RPM, 24 psi

I would look at the oil pump or pickup tube if it took too long for the oil to pick up when refilling after draining the oil. Or, if the oil light came on with hard maneuvers when the oil was at or above the Add mark on the dipstick.
