    Oil pressure problem

    I changed my oil, made sure it was filled up perfectly. I have a 18g turbo set up. My oil pressure idicator drops below 20 and starts beeping. So can anyone tell me why it might be dropping below where it should be? Any help much appreciated

    Is the viscosity of the new oil identical to that of the oil you replaced?

    Where is the oil pressure sender connected?

    Do you have a leak?
    Is oil pouring out of your exhaust (could be blown turbo seal)?

    Could also be that the oil pickup tube is plugged with gunk on the bottom.

    Also check the AVCS bolt screens. Their was a TSB for them.

    That's your best bet. If you literally did not change anything at all, it's probably a faulty gauge. Oil pressure doesn't just die for no reason.
