Oil Pressure Measurement


Oil Pressure

Standard: About 196 kPa (2.00 kgf/cm², 28 psi) at 4 000 r/min (rpm), Oil Temperature 50°C (122°F)

If the reading is much lower than the standard, check the oil pump, relief valve, and/or crankshaft bearing insert wear immediately.

If the reading is much higher than the standard, check the oil passages for clogging.

WARNING

Hot oil can cause severe burns. Beware of hot engine oil that will drain through the oil passage when the gauge adapter is removed.

Torque - Oil Passage Plug (Taper): 20 N·m (2.0 kgf·m, 15 ft·lb)
