On my Nissan on the center dash it has a gauge that's says oil and on the inside psi
When I turn it on its some times on 0
But when I give it has it goes up to 60 and when I don't and I'm running goes between 0-60

THE GAUGE SHOULD NOT SAY ANYTHING UNLESS THE VEHICLE IS RUNNING

WHEN RUNNING, IT WILL PROBABLY READ "NORMAL" BETWEEN 20 PSI AND 60 PSI

IF YOU CHECK YOUR COOLANT AND OIL LEVEL

"WEEKLY"

"WEEKLY"

"WEEKLY"

(NOT OLE FRED DOWN AT SOOPER-DOOPER LUBE EVERY 5000 MILES)

AS PRESCRIBED IN YOUR OWNERS MANUAL (ALONG WITH THE OTHER CHECKS AND SERVICES AT THEIR SCHEDULED TIMES)

YOUR RIG MIGHT LAST A LONG TIME, "BONDING" WITH YOUR RIG LIKE THIS WILL IMMEDIATELY LET YOU KNOW IF ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU ARE LOSING JUICE SOMEWHERE (LIKE THE BRAKES, THEY ARE KINDA IMPORTANT!)

THIS WILL ALSO IMPRESS YOUR PALS THAT YOU HAVE SAFETY CONCERNS AS THEY WATCH YOU "MAINTAIN" YOUR BABY!

AS FAR AS THE GAUGE GOES

LOW OR NO OIL WILL MAKE IT DROP (IMMEDIATELY STOP THE CAR, NOT AT THE NEXT TOWN!) NO OIL PRESSURE WILL SURELY RUIN INTERNAL PARTS IN SECONDS, NOT MINUTES!

OIL PUMPS GO BAD TOO, EVEN IF YOU HAVE OIL, IT IS NOT BEING PUMPED WHERE IT NEEDS TO GO-ZERO OIL PRESSURE

THEN WE HAVE THE SENSOR OR GAUGE THAT COULD BE DEFECTIVE (STILL HAVE PRESSURE-JUST AIN'T SHOWING IT)

YOU KNOCKED A WIRE CONNECTOR OFF AT THE SENSOR-FOR SURE, THE GAUGE WON'T READ, BUT YOU STILL HAVE PRESSURE

THIS IS HOW EZ OR HARD THE PROBLEM MAY BE, PLAY IT SAFE, NO OIL PRESSURE, NO CRANKY IT UP TILL THE ISSUE IS RESOLVED. A $60 TOW BILL MIGHT SAVE YOU $3000 OR MORE FOR ANOTHER ENGINE/ DOWN TIME AND HEARTACHE

MINE ARE 40 AND 70 YEARS OLD, EVEN THOUGH I KNOW 'EM BOTH INSIDE OUT, THE FEW MINUTES OF CHECKS AND SERVICES (WHAT WAS THAT? WEEKLY!) KEEPS ME ABLE TO DRIVE EITHER ONE DAILY WITH NO MAJOR SURPRISES, MOSTLY THE 40 YEAR OLD, HE HAS BEEN MY PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION EVERY DAY SINCE 1991! (I ALSO HAD 5 OTHERS BETWEEN '81 AND '91)

THIS DO YOU ANY GOOD?
