Hello everyone , I'm the owner of 155 TS1.8 8V , has anybody got the figures for the oil pressure
by various engine-speeds , mine does about 3bar/3000tr-min , at 4000tr-min its about the same , I'm a bit afraid I got an oil cycle malfunction .
In the manual it says that at 5000 tr-min the engine pressure should be about 5b...(all with warm engine) I have never seen the engine pressure reach that figure , only with a cold engine it does 4bar
Yep I totally agree!, the oil pressure gauges in Italian cars are always a bit unreliable, just as well the engines are so good!.
I've always wondered though, why the oil pressure gauge in the 155 goes upto 8 Bar?
Thanks Guys , now I can stop worrying , my engine has about 186000km/116250mi on his acount and I really thought there was someting going wrong.
I'm the second owner so I don't have the full history on maintenance , I'ts a very good car though and I really like it.
