What should the oil pressure be in my 3.5L V6 at 1500 rpm or higher? It's 11psi at idle, but 80 or higher in gear.
I can't find out what it should be. I've replaced the pump spring just in case, and have a new cup on order, but would like to avoid pulling the engine to install a new pump. Any suggestions?
