Is my oil pressure in range
« on: February 21, 2021, 08:11:04 pm »
So Ive been doing some oil pressure tests on my mk5 gti axx just wanted to know if my readings are in range or not any help would be really appreciated
Cold Startup 70 psi
As the engine warms the idle speed drops to 20 psi after about 10 min of running then slowly drops to 15 psi
The lowest it drops to is 10 psi thats when the engine has been driven for a while and is fully up to temp
When up to temp and revved to 2000rpm your talking 45-50 psi

Most VW spec is minimum 2 bar at 2000rpm hot.

Are you getting oil pressure warnings?

No oil pressure warnings so im in range under load by the sound of it, just not sure about idle
