If oil is not circulating around engine then there could be a blockage resulting in increase of oil pressure. But if your car is under warranty then why dont you take it back and mention your concern in case if something goes wrong.

I have a 94 YJ gave me the same issues and I did all you did and more.
Finely I was told that penzoil has a parfin base which lends it self to the cause. I don't know if it is true or not I'm just a shade tree mech. I switched over to full synthetic and WA-LA It took a couple of changes after a good cleaning but I've been TICK free for a over a year now. since I do my own change it helps hold the cost down. I was also told I needed lifters and a rebuild & all that jazz so I figured that if she was gona die I'd deal with that when it happens so far so good.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times.

There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

Cheers
Sean

Check the oil pressure wire attached to the gauge usually in the engine compartment. Dirt can interfere with the signal causing a short which will give you the symptoms you describe. Hope this helps

How to locate oil filter holden captiva LX Petrol 2010


Hi Indi as far as I remember the petrol version has the oil filter tucked up at the front of engine. It is quite a large filter so it is quite noticeable. looking at the engine front grill if its a spin on filter it is slightly left of centre but up under the base of engine. If cartridge type (don't think this is your model) open bonnet look down towards bell housing and there is a black plastic round cover with a nut shape on top this needs to be undone and removed to show filter. The diesel is looking from front left of engine behind timing cover ( cartridge type) Sorry it's been a few years since I last done one of these but try all three locations and I am sure you will find it Good luck.

My oil pressure is low on tick over When running it's around 32 is this normal ? New oil filter and oil Cheers mike


many engines reduce the pressure to just above half of full pressure when idling
one way to increase the pressure is to upgrade to a higher viscosity oil---ie that is from 15w30 to 20w50 or 30w 50

Peugeot 308 low oil pressure and loss some power


Low oil pressure starts from oil pump sounds like its blocked either in the pump filter or galleries in the enging. I would first call the dealer and check what filter system is on the pump which may require removal of the sump to replace or clean.

I would certainly not use a car with this problem as it could well cause engine failure. Try a good quality flush first and run the car for 20 minutes minimum on tick over. Remove and put a good quality oil in and do another oil change again if required a month later with a flush to make sure the gunge is out.

If this does not help do an oil pressure test and see what it comes out at checking the manufacturers recommended pressures. If you have changed the oil, pump filters and done a second oil change and still get low pressure then you may well have a faulty pump.

I would also check the oil pressure switch to make sure it s not giving a false reading. The loss of power sounds like Turbo failure and again dirty oil to the Turbo oil feed pipes could be restricitng flow, hence why regular flushing oil and filter change is important.

I would get the Turbo checked out same time as on this model it could well be a Turbo and engine change if its gone that far due to the metal particles contaminating the engine.

Not until you have done all the necessary checks. Check that the oil is bright cherry red and not tan. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal faults. Have the fault codes read to check for transmission faults (TCM ) check oil level. Remove the pan and clean out the filter./ If there is band and clutch pack linings in the filter then you may have to have the box overhauled.. If not adjust the bands and clutch packs . After all the checks are done then and only then should you consider a replacement transmission and only from accredited transmission shops

I have a 2009 chevy cobalt and i ran it out of gas still have power but it wont start when i added gas plus its about 17 degrees outside does this change anything


fuel pumps need fuel to lubricate the little plastic gears that pump the petrol. No fuel=no lubrication= dead pump. Try a new pump and ensure that there is always enough petrol in the tank. It takes a lot less than 17 degrees to freeze petrol. Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check pump operation. regulator operation and fuel filter.

Low oil pressure/ guage fluxuates but runs low


Sounds like a valve lifter or in queens english a hydraulic tappet ,Now what i used to do on the rover V8 was to add a tin of gunk brand name exterior engine cleaner and then let customer have the car back and do some miles,or as soon as the noise stopped ,then change the oil and filter and add the diesel/petrol turbo engine oil as this is detergent and then change the oil every 5/6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change ,if no engine cleaner then try half a litre of diesel or just change the oil for one detergent type diesel engine oil you will not hurt the engine using this oil the cheaper it is the better as well .In extreme cases i give a 2 second squirt of fairy washing up liquid to the oil as well ,has to be fairy mind them cheapos are no good for this job .Stop worring about it and just do as i say

1987 new yorker 2.2 turbo oil pressure low on ilde


Hook up a mechanical test gage to the oil pressure port where the oil pressure sender goes and verify the oil pressure is at least 20-30 pounds at idle engine hot. If the oil pressure checks ok on the test replace the oil pressure sender. You should be able to borrow this gage from Autozone or O'reilly auto parts with a deposit and a credit card.

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 ford taurus 3.0 liter engine located? glenn


On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.

Vw polo 1.4 1999 oil light comes on at 3000 revs filter ok oil level ok new oil pump fitted


Had exactly the same problem, completely baffled us until we discovered that the it was the oil pressure switch. We had already replaced it with a new one and then that didnt fix it so we fitted a new oil pump, but as soon as it was revved over 3000 revs the oil light came on. It turns out that there is actually a choice of 2 oil pressure switches for this car (1999 1.4 polo) one works only low pressure (black cap) and is the wrong one, the other works on a higher racio (green cap) its the high pressure one you need. If the oil light was on at tick over or below 3000 revs then its the lower oil pressure switch needed, above 3000 its the higher one. The parts people insisted there was only one, but there is definately a choice of 2 and it fixed ours instantly.
If it was an older model they actually have 2 switches on the car itself and one is a high pressure and one is a low pressure (just incase anyone needed to know)
