My 97 1600 crossflow supersprint with 15k on the clock runs low oil pressure on idle once warm of between 1 and 2 bar.Is this normal and anybody else experienced this.Faulty sensor or gauge maybe ?.Engine runs well with no smoke or loss in power so wouldnt mind views on this

It's quite normal for a X/Flow to have low op at idle. Seem to recall it is normally around 3-3.5 bar running at higher rpm when hot.


If yours is at that level then all should be well. *thumbup*

Mine is the same, around 1 bar at tick-over (oil pressure light comes on), but 4.5 - 5.5 bar when warm at revs (dry sumped).





Ital or Ford... the choice is yours....


Hmmm, I'll have the ford please Bob.
