Synthetic is best but also $$$$$$. Just buy your oil from dealer, mine holds a hair under 4 qts (i use 4 qts) with filter. drain plug is under motor assy (bottom)

Testimonial: "thank you for the quick response. I went and bought 4 qts. I put in just over 3 1/2 w/new filter. when the bike is straight up it covers the line."

Hd oil presure up and down


Hi Anonymous, if your oil pressure gauge is acting eratic or your oil pressure light stays on you could have a faulty sending unit, gauge or air in the system or a restricted oil filter, start by checking oil level in tank and make sure it is between the add and full mark. With engine at normal operating temperature 180-230 degrees and the use of a 10 micron synthetic media oil filter, oil pressure will be 30-38 psi at 2,000 RPM and 3-5 psi. at idle. The oil pressure light is designed to come on at 2 psi. or less. To accurately test oil pressure remove oil pressure sending unit and install known good oil pressure gauge that reads 0-50, there might possibly be some plumbing required for hard to access points. If you are out in the middle of nowhere and there is no cell phone service and your oil pressure gauge isn't working and your oil pressure light is burned out, despair not, you still have one last line of defense left HYDRAULIC LIFTERS, as long as those tireless workers are quiet, you have oil pressure, maybe not much, but enough to get you down the road at a slow to moderate speed using the least amount of RPMS as necessary. Good luck and have nice day.

1981 kawasaki 440LTD. Engine oil light stays on. Oil pump good, Sending unit appears OK. Bike runs strong, can't find the problem. Need help


Well if your oil light is staying lit, but your oil pressure is good and you cant find any problems with the actual oiling of the bike, then this sounds basically like either A.Your sending unit is bad or B. You have a ground in your oil sending unit circuit somewhere. You could always replace the sending unit first to save time shooting the wiring harness.if you replace the unit and the light is still on, then you have a wire touching in the circuit between the sending unit and the warning light. I have an 81 KZ750 and my oil sending unit only has one wire going from it to the warning light and the color of it is Blue with a Red Stripe.I am not sure if yours has the same wiring colors though.

I have a 94 Land Rover Disco. Two weeks ago the check oil light come on, I checked the oil and it was full, I then checked all the other fluid levels, and they were fine. I then changed the oil, yet the...


either your pressure is low causing the light to come on , and dangerous to your engine , or the oil pressure sending unit is dead. It is just a small pressure switch that screws into the side of the engine block and reads the oil pressure. If the pressure is low , or the sensor is dead , the light comes on. Oil pressure sending units die a lot more often then oil pumps , and they are not expensive to buy , or hard to install. The hardest part of the job is actually locating on your engine. Its location should be easy to find out online.

Oil Pressure light stays on. Oil reservoir is full,oil level light goes out and dipstick shows full oil. What could cause this?


It occurred to me that you may find it by unplugging wires on the few items under the hood which may appear they could be the oil pressure sending unit.

The light should go out when the wire is unplugged, and if it does it is bad. That's your continuity test.

If you unplug the oil pressure sending unit and the light does not go out, the cause of the oil light staying on is something other than the oil pressure sending unit.

RE pete cass posting: I believe that if the sensor is diconnnected, the oil pressure light will not light (at least because of the oil pressure sensor switch being disconnected) -- the symptom here is the light won't go off. The switch is closed with oil pressure below 10-15 PSI and open above that oil pressure -- this is a normally closed switch.

The two switches you are having problems with are thermetically controlled; they can easily short out which will cause the light to stay on. First what I'd like you to do is disconnect them at the sending unit, if the lights still stay on you have a short somewhere deeper in the wiring. Most likely it will be a grounded wire. If the lights do go off you will then want to use an OHM meter to check continuity at the senders. If you get solid resistance then the sending unit is shorted out, if one remains open then isolate the other. You may have a situation that one switch is causing both to stay lit.
Let me know if this helps you out at all. Tell me if you don't have the resources to co the diagnostics as described and I'll be happy to give you a work around. We will just have to be a little creative.
Either way let me know and I'll be happy to help you resolve the issue. I'm inclined to thing your problem is a short not a heat related issue since both sending units are both indicating a problem.
Regards,
RSelvy
