Since I got this vehicle I have been having problems with the oil pressure gauge readings.
Three months ago I got a new oil pump, timing chain kit installed and new water pump.
After about one month of this job I started to see pulsation in the oil gauge reading. Took it in and apparently the rear timing cover oil gallery gasket was leaking as the mechanic used RTV which was recommended by the dealer. This time I ordered the gaskets and got everything out back to gather.
For about two weeks everything was good and sound. Few days ago it got cold out here in Canada and the oil pressure needle went to high reading. After warm up it would come to the middle and stay there until I floored the throttle and it would go to high again. But now form the past three days the pressure is responsive to RPM. Oil pressure needle get very low when at idle.
When I got it fixed at first the needle would be right in the middle when my foot was on the gas. Now it just kind of just pulsates with he RPM kind of like when the gaskets were leaking,
I have done a lot of reading and seen that it could be the sending unit or the oil pressure sensor. I would love some input on what could be wrong. Please help! I have spent like $2,000.00 already. The gaskets I out in are CPZ performance sold gaskets.
have the same problem?
