Six-year the oil pressure gauge for your 1999 Mitsubishi eclipse with the retaining screws. Connect the oil pressure gauge wiring harness.

Connect the wiring harness to the back of your oil pressure gauge. Secure the oil pressure gauge with the retaining screws.

Do you mean an oil pressure gauge? Not tach?

"T" into the existing oil pressure gauge with brass pipe fittings. This way you will have the original oil pressure gauge and the mechanical oil pressure gauge. Don't forget to use thread sealer.

I feel sure you have checked to see that the engine has oil in it. You need to install an external oil pressure gauge, the mechanical type and check for pressure. If it shows that you have oil pressure then your sending unit is defective.

get a oil pressure gauge from the auto store and install it under your dash or where ever you find a place to install it and read the directions on how to install it.

T off of stock pressure switch (sending unit) It is below the intake manifold on the back. Unscrew the lead clip with a phillips, then remove the whole unit with a 1" socket.

If it is vacuum a gauge oil filter. You have to buy a 3/8 pipe t fitting to fit the block and install both the sensor and the gauge tube on. Key on power wire to light it up.

The oil gauge shows the oil's temperature. The oil pressure gauge monitors the oil pressure for your viewing pleasure.

You need to install an external oil pressure gauge and determine the true oil pressure. The problem could be just an oil sending unit.

Defective gauge, defective oil pressure sending unit, low of oil, defective oil pump.

according to my pressure gauge on a 99 gst at idle about 50 and 3200 about 75psi

Either replace it or install a manual gauge to determine actual oil pressure

Screw out the oil sending unit. Put a "tee" back into the hole. Screw in the oil sending unit for the light AND the fitting for the mechanical oil gauge.

You will need to remove your oil pressure sending unit and install a mechanical gauge to get a true reading. You need to start out cold and write down the pressure reading and also once it warms up to operating temperature. If the pressure gauge is not the same as the mechanical one you have a bad pressure switch.

Check oil level Install a manual gauge to determine actual oil pressure

It really depends which sort of GAUGE you have. For example; you couldn't wire a volt meter to the oil pressure switch.

Take the wire loose from the oil sending unit and then turn the key on and ground the wire to the engine somewhere and the gauge in the truck should go all the way past the highest point. If it don't then the gauge in the dash is bad are the wire going to it ( The 1 you grounded ) is broken. If the gauge is reading low oil pressure, Then unscreew the oil sending unit on the engine just behind the distributor, were you took the wire loose from. Then install a OIL PRESSURE GAUGE into it's place. Then start the engine and read the pressure, Now compare the reading on the dash gauge to what you are reading on the oil gauge.

Hopefully (for you) just a bad oil pressure sending unit Install a manual gauge to actually check the vehicle's oil pressure
