Advice 1: How to raise the oil pressure in the engine

The pressure of the oil in the engine is an important indicator of the state of the motor. Technical characteristics of the car shows the nominal value of pressure. If these figures are close to the lower limit, it is necessary to take measures to raise blood pressure.
How to raise the oil pressure in the engine
Instruction
1
Measure the pressure at idle speed at the warmed-up engine. This figure should be at least 0,08 MPa. Then swipe measurements when the vehicle is moving at a speed of 40 km/h, here the value should be about 0.2-0.25 MPa. Follow the pointer of pressure of oil, located on the instrument panel, if it shows that it is not correct, first check what oil you poured into the engine – whether the grade and quality.
2
Try replacing the sensor that indicates the pressure of the oil, it is often incorrect operation leads to a distortion of the data in the lubricating system of the engine that you see on the instrument panel. After replacing again check. If the pressure at the same low level, plug in the installation location of the indicator gauge control pressure gauge and use it to measure the pressure again.
3
Look at the pressure gauge. If it shows normal pressure, change the pressure gauge located on the dashboard. Buy a new one and install it.
4
Do a little pressure in the lubrication system of the engine can be due to clogged relief valve. So it needed cleaning. Gently remove it and rinse thoroughly. Not interfere with its adjustment, which guide after installing it on the engine. To do this, connect a test pressure gauge, and looking at his readings, adjust the valve.
5
The latest malfunction in which the pressure oil in the engines is negligible, could be a faulty oil pump that needs to be replaced. Also check strainer mosapramine, which may be dirty, then just clean it or buy a new one. Carefully inspect the liners connecting rod and main bearings that are on the crankshaft – excessive wear can also cause low pressure. After the replacement and cleaning of these sites, check readings, make sure that now with the oil all right, and the pressure at the proper level.

Advice 2: How to check the oil pressure in the engine

Every car owner must know about the existence of the instrument dial or indicator that indicates the level of pressure in the lubrication system. Purpose this indicator is displayed on the dashboard — the most visible place of your car. To avoid breakage, every driver needs to constantly monitor the readings of this indicator.
How to check the oil pressure in the engine
You will need
  • - Pressure gauge
Instruction
1
Warm engine to operating temperature (over 60 degrees).
2
Turn off the engine and remove the pressure sensor, which is usually located in the cylinder head.
3
Attach a suitable size pressure gauge to the system instead of the sensor. To connect use the adapter with different diameters.
4
Start the engine and remove the pressure gauge at different rpm operation of the engine.
5
Again, turn the engine off. Disconnect the manometer, when the pressure of oil in the system drops to zero.
6
Install the pressure sensor in place.
7
Compare readings with the values declared by the manufacturer of the engine, and make the appropriate conclusions.
Note
The excess pressure in the system may lead to the expulsion of motor oil through the seals. To prevent this, the engines provided a pressure-reducing valve, which if excessive (usually more than 4-5 bar) pressure diverts part of the oil back to the pump inlet. Therefore, the oil flow through seals and other seals can be directly linked to the failure of such valve.

Low pressure in the system can lead to much more heavy for the engine effects. Thanks to sufficient pressure oil to all friction parts of the engine, ensures proper operation and prevents premature wear. The reduction of the pressure in the lubrication system can be caused by leakage of motor fluid within the system or the wear elements in the oil pump. You can also observe the opposite phenomenon, when the pressure drop caused by wear of rubbing parts, in particular bearings of the crankshaft. When wear increases the gaps, so the engine oil starts to flow through them.
Useful advice
To prevent unwanted effects in the engine system check engine oil pressure. Perform this procedure using the special tool pressure gauge. Why do that when there's a handy indicator on the instrument panel? The fact that this indicator only indicates that the oil pressure has dropped below minimum allowed value. It is not necessary to trust the arrow indicators, they are not always able to correctly display the status in the system. In addition, there is a likelihood of a fault condition of the indicator or sensor that transmits information.

Advice 3: How to raise oil pressure

What shows the sensor of pressure of oil, it is possible to understand how the car works correctly. Failures in the readings of the pressure sensor suggests that the machine appeared to malfunction. However, such disruption may have a few problems.
How to raise oil pressure
You will need
  • control gauge;
  • the sensor of pressure of oil;
  • - the oil filter;
  • - mineral oil;
  • - the valves of the crankshaft.
Instruction
1
Start the vehicle and drive some distance at speed 40 km/h At reduced pressure oil on the dash will light up a special sensor, which determines the normal performance.
2
Incorrect operation of the sensor of pressure of oil can cause you to see incorrect information on the engine oil system. So try first, replace the pressure sensor. After replacing measure whether his work standards, stated in the technical characteristics of the car.
3
The reason the pressure drops, the oil may be clogging the pressure reducing valve. In this case, it must be cleaned. Unscrew it, being careful not to damage, and rinse thoroughly. After installing the valve, adjust with a test pressure gauge.
4
Check to see if leaking under stuffing box gasket. This is a sign that the crankshaft is worn and must be replaced. If no leaks, but the gauge indicator shows a deviation, the reason lies in the deterioration or malfunction camshaft. Try to handle. Otherwise, the valves need to be replaced.
5
The reason for low pressure oil may be worn out filter. Replace the oil filter. Then check the quality of used oil. It is better to use mineral. Their thicker consistency will raise the pressure level to the required.
Note
After replacement or adjustment of valves and gauges, be sure to check correctness of their work with a test gauge. At idle, the indicators should be at least 0,08 MPa.
Useful advice
Carefully read the information about the technical characteristics of your car. Design some machines it allows the blinking of the oil pressure sensor.
