90 Subaru Loyale Turbo manafacture date 1/89 Mileage over 200,000, 1.8 FI Engine. For about the first 10 -15 minutes that the car runs the oil pressure reads approx. 45 then starts dropping and goes to 0. When the car is stopped at a traffic light the pressure stays at 0 but when I hit the gas to accelerate the pressure comes up but only to 20. When I let off the gas the pressure drops back down again almost to 0 again. When we bought the car the whole engine was covered in oil. I have since cleaned the engine and it doesn't appear to be leaking oil from anywhere. I have also replaced the air filter, changed the oil and oil filter, replaced the distributor cap and rotor, spark plugs and wires. Flushed the radiator also. The antifreeze in the radiator was pink.
What could be causing the problem with the lack of oil pressure? When I changed the oil is was black and really thin. The new oil I put in 10w40 a month ago is still brown like it is suppose to be but appears to be not as thick as it was when I put it in. It appears to be watered down, the oil dripped off the dip stick when I checked the oil but the oil level remains about the same. The car gets driven approx. 100 miles per week if that.
Also why was the antifreeze pink, any ideas?
? : :Idea: :roll:
