Hey Rino==It shold be about 6#-15# at idle and 25#-45# at 55 mph. This is approxamate as the gauges on cars are not REAL accurate. If the factory put in gauges that were very precise, the price would have to go up another $500. If your oil preasure is much different than I have specified, have a manual gauge installed at least temporarily to see how accurate your gauges are. GoodluckJoe

Engine not reaching operating temperature.

My 1992 PA with a 3.8 engine has a a 195 degree thermostat. This causes the normal engine temperature to be about 205 degrees. The pressure cap will keep the fluid from boiling up to about 240 degrees.

There is no ideal pressure. Of course the oil pressure will be higher when the engine is cold. After it is running and at full operating temp, the pressure should read at least 10 lbs while idling. The pressure will be directly related to how many miles are on the engine and the amount of wear. A new engine will have around 40 lbs when hot and running at 2,000 rpms, and around 30 lbs at idle.

Do they have the same engine? If not, then no, it wont work. If they do, make sure they have the same fuel pressure requirment. If the engine and pressure is the same, they should be interchangeable.

Around 40 psi when at at operating temp.

Your car's operating temperature should be 192 degrees.

low pressure side on a buick skylark with a 2.4 engine is by the compresor. you get to it from under the car. left side, front side of engine.

The oil pump supplies the oil to the engine bearings where it is forced from one to the other. That is what creates the oil pressure. The pressure is transmitted to the gauge by way of a sending unit. You need a mechanical gauge to see what the true pressure is so as to determine if the sending unit is bad. A defective oil filter relief valve will cause a pressure fluctuation. The pressure will increase from an idle as you accelerate. You will need to check and see what normal operating pressure is and at what RPM.

The low pressure is located on top of the accumulator. It is on the passenger side of the engine bay.

Oil Pressure Sending Unit LocationBuick positioned the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block, just below the power steering pump.

The oil pressure sending unit on a 1997 Buick LeSabre is located on the bottom side of the engine, near the oil filter. It monitors oil pressure to ensure that the pump is working properly.

Typically the thermostats in this type of car has a normal operating temperature of 195 degrees.

right next to the oil filter on the passenger side of the engine.

A Buick with a 3.8 liter engine does not have an oil pressure switch. There is an oil pressure gauge. The gauge can be accessed by removing the dashboard panel. Unhook the wiring harness to the gauge. Reverse the process to replace the gauge.

should be located on front of engine above the oil filter.

Refrigerant for a 1996 Buick Skylark is inserted into the low pressure AC hose. This hose is found on the left side of the engine bay.
