  • Low oil pressure

    Ok os i just noticed today, and im not sure if it has to do with me running synthetic oil, but my oil pressure is lower than it has been on conventional oil. It used to run about 25psi at idle and about 50psi when driving. now its got about 12-15 psi at idle, and about 32psi when driving. It getting that time when i need to change my oil again, but i dont know why its doing this. It was a quart low so i filled it to the max line, but i have the same result. I wonder if the guage is acting up. What do you think, thanks guys.

      Nope, I run a 10w-30 full synthetic mobil1 with a bosche filter, I change the oil and filter every 3k.
