Re: Oil Pressure at Idle.
Is this when the car is warm or cold ?
When the engine is warm the pressure will drop naturally as the oil thins under heat.
I have a 16v, and it normally sits around 4 bar when cold, but drops to around 3 when warm, but rises when revving the engine.
I will check these details on my way home from work in a minute...
Above readings are what mine were today.
On first start-up 4bar, rising when revved.
Once warm down to around 3bar, again rising when revved.
But this is on a 2.0 16v.
See below, CS knows what he's talking about.
