The oil pressure will depend on the condition of the engine. If you have 10 lbs at idle when engine is hot with this mileage, you are within specs. I would use 10W-30 oil. oil pressure of 10lbs and up is acceptable at hot idle. i like to use havoline 30wt oil. have never had a problem with it.

Why does the air condition on a 1991 silverado cool more at idle than while driving?

When the car is at idle, the air conditioner works just as hard as when the car is moving. When the car moves, the engine gets very hot. so the air conditioning works better when your at idle because it doesn't have to cool the heat from the engine.

What causes very fast idle on a 1993 Toyota 4x4 pickup 22re?

Your idle control valve may cause this.It is located under the front of throttle body.It is a thermostatic control device.Water passes through and heats up thermostat and closes air passage and idles engine down.You can touch the ICV when engine is hot and it should also be hot since hot water flows through it.Sometimes a flow restriction may be the promblem, if it is not hot when engine is hot you have a flow promblem. this unit can be removed and cleaned. It also can be adjusted internally by turning a spanner nut, the more you run the nut in it slows down cold idle speed.....

Where do you safely poor engine coolant into your 1999 ford ranger?

The reservoir has two level lines - one for "cold engine" and the other for "hot engine". If the engine is hot, and the coolant level is low, fill the reservoir to the "hot engine" level. When the engine is cold and the level is low, I usually" top off" the radiator and fill the reservoir to the "cold engine" level.

Every vehicle gets hot to the touch, it doesnt mean that your over heating or anything... a Plymouth Voyager gets 195 Degrees. the heat is actually better for the invironment then when the engine is cold because the heat helps burn all gases and keeps it from the air.
