Engine Cooling problem
2009 Other Hyundai Models 6 cyl New miles
Our team is working on a Hyundai Lambda 3.6L V6 300HP engine. We are having disputes as to where the oil sensor should be located. Is it before the oil filter? After the oil filter?
We are getting two different reads from the two different positions.
The position after the oil filter reads 1-3 PSI at 1,000RPM warmed up.
The position before the oil filter reads 18-20 PSI at 1,000 RPM warmed up.
Which position is correct? Or is there something wrong with the sensor (sensor was checked out fine).
Tell me if I am wrong but we seem to believe that the oil pressure that the engine is directly receiving is 1-3 PSI at 1,000 RPM. This is because the position after the oil filter is the last point in which the oil travels until it reaches the engine. The oil filter obviously decreases the PSI and we feel that 1-3 PSI is VERY LOW for the engine.
The manual states that at 1,000 RPM the PSI should be 18.77 PSI. HOWEVER, the original position of the sensor is located after the oil filter and that sensor only reads 1-3 PSI at 1,000 RPM.
This is why we are confused. Why would they list the oil psi specification at a point before the oil filter even though the actual sensor is located after the oil filter?
We are worried that the 1-3 PSI reading is the correct reading. Isn't 1-3 PSI VERY LOW? Dangerous?
I am sure that my question is not very clear and so I would like to request a technician to give us a call.

Your experience and expertise would be greatly appreciated.
Please I would like to speak to anyone with some knowledge in this matter. DOES NOT have to be a hyundai expert. Just a Car Expert. Thank you so so much.
