    Oil Pressure Drop

    I have an 06 STi, which I have recently lost ALL oil pressure in. I took the car apart, replaced the oil pump, put it back together, and still have no oil pressure. I also removed screens from the oil lines connecting to the turbo, so that can't be the issue. My next step is the oil pickup tube. My question is this: Is the pickup tube actually called and "oil strainer?" And if so, I have heard multiple things about this part actually being welded to the block. However, I have looked at several diagrams, and they show it just being bolted on. Anyone out there know the answer to this? Also, how hard of a job would it be for me to do myself? I know the engine has to be lifted, I would just like to know if any of you guys have done this yourselves? Thanks in advance for the help guys.

    Could it be a bad sending unit?

    I think it's definitely mechanical.... I had turbo failure immediately following the oil pressure light.

    There are several reports of broken pick up tubes. Enough that I ordered a Killer B p/u tube yesterday. There are directions posted on the Killer B site, and on NASIOC, and here as well I'm sure. Hopefully your car hasn't been starved of oil; what were the circumstances leading up to the pressure drop?

    The tube is bolt on, but it does have welds/brazes that are the failure point. Removing the pan looks to be much more of a pain in the ass than it should be.

    You should really keep this to one section, and this is the correct one. However, I replied to your other thread with info.

    I was just driving the car normally. When the light came on, I stopped driving and had it taken to my house. I took the oil filter off and cut it open and didn't see any brassy metal or anything, so I assume I turned the car off in time to save the motor.

    No prob, just keep in mind server space isn't free, so keeping things to one thread is preferable. Keep it in it's designated area and I guarantee someone will reply eventually.
