    Gauges on the dash

    Please could someone tell me what is normal for all the gauges on the dash to read? I'm mainly thinking of the one on the far right (oil pressure??) which seems to spend most of its time at maximum (around 5 IIRC).

    I'm no mechanic (can you tell?) so haven't got a clue what these things mean.


    Cheers all,

    Ed

    Re: Gauges on the dash

    Hi Ed,
    The gauge at the far right is the oil pressure gauge, as you guessed. The needle is mostly at five when you drive and the engine is warm [except if you go beyong 5000 rpm, the needle is supposed to point 3.5]. When idled, the needle is around 2. Consider that there might me a problem if the oil pressure gauge gives a measure under 1.5 when the engine is on idle and at operating temperature, with some 0W-40 oil type in your engine.

    Re: Gauges on the dash

    yeah, oil pressure guage, not much use really. Like monitoring your pulse all the time. Nice to have, more fun than an iidiott light, but you since you have the guage you should really know what the normal range looks like.

    Excellent - no need to worry then - thanks v much.

    Most important, at least for the first 15 minutes, is the oil temp gauge. Need to ensure oil has heated up before you start getting excited...
