What if the fuel pressure is at 80 psi in an explorer?

Your pressure gauge may be broken....If it fluctuates, then you know its not your gauge, but if your gauge always reads 80, it may need to be replaced.

How does a pressure gauge work?

Reverse airflow feels a chamber inside the gauge and reads the pressure equal to the inside of the tyre its that simple. Same for air compressure, when the pressure is applied it seals the valve on the gauge end then back pressure fills the chamber inside the gauge when you release the gauge from the tyre valve the pressure has gone!!

Difference between pressure gauge and manometer?

A manometer is a pressure gauge, "Manometer" reads extremely low pressures that are very close to atmospheric pressures, "pressure gauges" read much larger pressures.

It means the filter needs replacement

What is an oil pressure sensor?

It is an electrical devise that "measures" the oil pressure and converts it into an electrical signal that a computer or the gauge cluster reads.

Yes. That is most likely a sensor malfunction and will do no harm. Zero pressure is when you worry.

You might plan to refuel when your fuel gauge reads one-eighth of a tank of gasoline. Some people choose to refuel when the gauge reads one-quarter of a tank remaining.

How do you know if oilpump is bad on chevy350?

Need to hook up a oil pressure gauge in the place were the oil sending unit is on the engine and see what the gauge reads, You should have no less then 20 LBS. at a idle. If it does not have oil pressure then pump is bad.

1997 Astro van oil pressure gauge reads about 20 psi key on or not and engine running or not how to check if oil pump or oil pressure sending unit?

GM oil pressure senders have a pretty high failure rate. Since your van is 10 years old, and pressure senders are not too expensive, I would start by replacing your sender...there's a pretty high likelihood that you will eventually replace it anyway.

What to do if the sand filter gauge reads zero and won't backwash?

this usually means that the multiport valve in the filter head is bad.. the gauge is not always accurate. replace gauge. the impeller in the pump can also be cloged not allowing you to get any pressure in your gauge. the backwash will be very slow if not any..

Get a re-charge kit at Wal-Mart or auto parts - you can jump out pressure switch at top of accumulator/drier with paper clip to start a/c compressor--when pressure builds light should go out

Oil pressure gauge reads zero after starting the engine then in a couple of minutes goes up a little then jumps to normal and stays there?

Oil pressure has to built up. As long as the pressure is normal and the oil level is good. There is no problem.

Does an 87 F150 have a low oil pressure cut off safety?

I don't think I does but I have had a low oil pressure reading on the idiot gauge as well(as do many). What I found is that its most likely the system the gauge uses, not your pressure. The easy way to find out is to buy a mechanical gauge and see how it reads. Or, this link is great for fixing it yourself. Good luck

My jeep 2002 jeep oil pressure reads 80?

Probably just a bad calibration on the gauge. I've seen it before, and testing it with another oil pressure gauge shows normal pressures. A: when the oil pressure gauge reads 80 psi it means that there is an open sense circuit. it is most likely a defective oil pressure sending unit, but may also be an open sense circuit wire between the pcm and the oil sender. note: most defective oil senders in this condition are also leaking oil. oil may be seen leaking from the connector seal on the sender.

What could be wrong if oil pressure gauge reads nothing and the oil pressure light is on in a 1997 Cadillac Catera?

The oil pressure light is on due to the fact that there is no pressure from the oil, fill it up, and if that does not fix it, check for faulty wiring. P.S. There is no such thing as "Blinker Fluid."

What might cause the indicator dial on the fuel gauge of a 1999 Chevy Astro AWD to vibrate?

If the vehicle will stall and will not restart or appears to be out of fuel but the fuel gauge reads above empty, replace the fuel sensor assembly and auxiliary tank fuel level sensor if equipped. if not, replace the instrument cluster.

What does it mean when r-22 gauge reads the same on the low and high sides of a heat pump?

It means either the compressor is not running, or if you are certain it is, the compressor valves are bad. You can verify this by taking an amperage reading and comparing what you read to the compressor nameplate. If the valves are bad the reading will be significantly lower than they should be. Also the compressor will feel hot to the touch and will cycle on and off on it`s internal temperature protection device.
