2001 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
In another shop they cleaned the oil pump strainer cause the oil light started to turn one while driving so they cleaned the oil pump strainer and told him the it would be good to change the bearings of the crankshaft and piston rods. So I pulled the engine out and change the bearing plus the oil pump. To be on the safe side I put a gauge to see the pressure. It was about 40psi at idle and 60psi at 1500rpm and then it started going down and down until it got to 0 and the oil light turned on. I shut it off and after a while turned it back on and pressure ok and after about 5 to 8 minutes it went down to 0. The pressure went down slowly.I was thinking of taking the head off a taking it to a machine shop so they can check the head and camshafts. Can the Camshaft Oil Control Valve have to do something with the lost of pressure? Need help Thanks
have the same problem?
