Depending on the mileage and mainytenance of the engine, you MAY be looking at an engine overhaul. First off, have you checked the OIL LEVEL? make sure it is full. If it is, you may have a failign oil pump issue. The oil pump is in the oil pan at the bottom of the engine and pumps oil throughout the engine. If the oil pump fails totally your engine will eventually seize becasue there is no lubrication between the metal parts. Not good. Now if your oil pump is working properly and you are experiencing low oil pressure readings, then likely the bearing passages on the crank are worn and you are looing at an engine overhaul. If the oil and oil filter in your S10 has NOT been changed regularly, then dirty oil has been recirculating throughout your engine causing premature wear on the bearings and pistons as well as valve train. This is why it is important to perform routine maintenance on oil changes. So...check the oil level and make sure it is full. Then......you can find where the oil pressure sensor is on your engine and hook another oil pressure gauge to it and see what that gauge is reading. If it reads low also, then you are looking at an overhaul. You can add a heavier weight oil to increase some oil pressure but that really doesn't cure the problem. You're using an oil that's too thin. The engine needs a heavier oil to maintain oil pressure as the bearing clearances get a little older. If you've been using a 5W15 oil, change to a 10W30 or even a 15W40. Try going up to the next heavier oil to see if that helps. If that doesn't do it, go higher again. It could be the oil pressure switch, they are very cheap and made of plastic, prone to failure. If you are sure you have proper oil pressure in the engine but the gauge on the dash says it's low, the first thing I would suspect is that switch.
Trans fluid is always checked with car level and idling while warmed up.
Scan for codes, some parts store do it free.
The old rule of thumb used to be 10 lbs per 1000 rpms. So, if that old Chevy small block engine is warmed up and idling with 10 lbs of oil pressure, don't worry about it.
Mine is between 500 and 600 rpm's after the engine is warmed up.
When dry ice is warmed at 1 atm of pressure, it goes back to its gaseous state or form.
No. It should be idling around 650 warmed up. Look for a possible vacuum leak.
decreases i think
It is normal for the oil pressure to drop some when warmed up.
oil pressure normally will go up and down with rms for the most part. when the motor is cold there is more oil pressure as the oil and motor get warmed up the oil thins out and the pressure goes down.
The temparature was higher and it caused more air pressure
The warming air would expand and the tyre pressure would go up.
Defective radiator cap? Leak in system (Pressure test)? Head gasket?
It is normal for the oil pressure to drop when the engine is warmed up and at an idle.
my 96 dodge Dakota wont idle when engine is warm and i changed idle air controle valve what else could be wrong
It doesn't really come from anywhere. High pressure can form anywhere when air from aloft converges aloft and then is pushed downwards, compressed, and warmed. The air then divereges at ground level. Usually the air that has been compressed and warmed doesn't have any clouds because in the process of being warmed, clouds dissipate from the compressional warming. Hope this helped!
sublimation (sublimation is the process of a solid turning into a gas)
A faulty PCV valve can certainly cause idling problems, especially after the engine has warmed.
warmed air sinks, creating a high-pressure area as it falls.
The transmission dip stick is under the hood, on the passenger side near the firewall Check the transmission fluid with the vehicle warmed up and idling in park.
it is idling high to warm up.it is dying because the choke is shutting off before it has warmed up
Could possibly be the fuel filter if not, fuel pump or pressure regulator.
There won't be any vacuum to the egr while idling. Engine must be warmed up and under acceleration or cruising before vacuum opens egr valve.
Because the heat causes the air inside the basketball to expand, which increases the pressure in the ball.
Could be due to engine wear Try a heavier viscosity oil Install a manual gauge to check actual pressure
