Oil pressure gauge

Recommended Posts

Finally (only took 3 years I think) got the oil pressure gauge fitted and now wonder if what it is telling me is good or bad!

So far it looks like about 3 bar when I start up and engine cold. Gradually increases to about 3.5 as engine warms and stays there doing 60mph round bypass. When I came to roundabout and idled at traffic lights it dropped to about 1.5 bar then at about 2 bar whist doing 30mph in fourth gear.

Is this the sort of behaviour one might expect from a 22 year old 200Tdi? What should I be watching out for? OK catastrohic drop is obvious but I am sure it could be telling me other things if I knew how to interpret the results.

Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.
