Oil Pressure?

What does your DMax run for oil pressure?

Oil Pressure?

Postby 01DMax [OP] » Jul 08 2012, 5:42am

Hey I am new to this site and I was just wondering if anyone could inform me of what their truck runs for oil pressure? The reason I am wondering is because I had an injector come loose, which poured fuel into my oil. After fixing the problem, I drained the oil and noticed that it seemed like it wasnt holding pressure like it should. I figured maybe there was still some fuel left in there so I changed oil once again. For the first few days after the oil change it seemed like it was holding oil pressure where it should. But while driving today I noticed that it has went down, and has since stayed down. Anyone had this happen or have any input on where theirs runs?

Depends on which Dmax you have cause they can vary a couple of PSI from year to year. :)

I just got the 04 LLY today. It's got a full case of oil; running about 30-40 PSI at idle; closer to 80 PSI when I stomp on it. The gauge says 120 PSI is max.
