Have you change the oil pressure sending unit, that's what I had to do.

What type of gauge would you use to check fuel pressure?

I use a fuel pressure gauge.

Definition of a compound gauge?

A compound gauge is a pressure gauge that displays both negative and positive gauge pressure measurements. Gauge pressure is a measurement of pressure relative to ambient pressure. For example, if ambient pressure was 14.7 PSI and you were to measure absolute vaccum using a compound gauge, the gauge would indicate -14.7 PSI.

Why would my 1995 4.3L'V6 GMC SOMONA have no oil pressure?

1. low oil 2. electronic oil pressure switch has failed (probably not a mechanical oil pressure gauge cause then you would see a oil line running through the firewall to the gauge. 3. short in the wiring

What would cause loss of oil pressure in 1996 F150?

Worn crankshaft bearings, oil pump, or a defective oil pressure sending unit. Have a oil pressure test done with a mechanical gauge, the electric gauge is not very accurate and is prone too failure.

If the absolute pressure of gas is 550.280 kPa it Gage pressure is?

The gauge pressure would be 448.955kPa.

What is vacuum gauge pressure?

Gauge pressure usually refers to the pressure difference between ambient, atmospheric pressure and the pressure in a vessel or line. A gauge pressure of zero would mean that the vessel or line was at atmospheric pressure. Normally the pressures of interest are ABOVE atmospheric so the gauge pressure is positive. Vacuum gauge pressure measures how far BELOW atmospheric pressure a vessel or line is. As such vacuum gauge pressure may be measured as a negative number - or for convenience it may be reported as a positive number with the caveat that it is "vacuum gauge pressure", meaning that the reported pressure is how far atmospheric pressure is above the pressure in the vessel or line.

What would cause the engine oil pressure gauge to rise?

My 89 4.0 engine had this problem every couple of years. The pressure gauge on the dash would peg out on high on the scale. It was always the oil pressure sensor located right below the distributer. Yours might be different. Not expensive. You might be able to do it your self.

If the absolute pressure of a gas is 550.280 kPa its gage pressure is?

The gauge pressure would be 448.955 kPa.

What would cause your oil pressure gauge to go down to the red line at idle and back up when driving I'm thinking oil pump oil pressure sensor or the gauge?

How do you detect leak in a vacuum chamber?

The simplest method would be to mount a pressure gauge onto the chamber, then to observe whether the reading changes. It should remain at "zero" indicated gauge pressure. If your instrumentation is relative to atmospheric pressure, it would be a "minus" pressure and would vary with local atmospheric pressure. For very accurate readings, you would need something more sophisticated, such as an ionisation gauge.

How do you know if your house is high or low water pressure?

I Guess the easiest way would to buy a gauge place it on a hose bib connection and then read what the gauge pressure is

What would cause the oil pressure gauge to turn off on a 1994 Buick Skylark?
