Hello all , and a merry xmas,
Since i changed to the Penrite oil Sin 25 which is a 25w-60 , i have noticed a leak from my oil pressure sender , which slowly fills up the valley between the heads and rolls down onto the exhaust eventually. I thought this oil would be fine due to the fact that my 3L v6 has done 200,000 kms. The sender still works fine and only reads about 4.7 bar at 5500 revs , although it could read false. I changed to a thicker oil as the gauge didn't read anything at 2000 revs in 4th when warm with a 15w-50 mobil 1 oil.
Does anyone know more about oils and could they tell me if i've gone with the wrong type. I would take it to a mechanic but he is shut for a few weeks.'
Help is much appreciated
