Losing oil pressure
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Oil Flow 101 for Cessna 150 and
Excessive clearance in gear pump could cause the problem, as well as a leak between the engine case halves. If this is the problem, the oil pressure will drop off as engine warms up. Could be material under the pressure relief valve also. This is for your A&P to fix.

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Without sufficient oil pressure, your car`s engine will operate with decreased lubrication and increased friction resulting in more heat. Engine overheating can be a complex issue. While it doesn`t always mean low engine oil pressure, low engine oil pressure can lead to an overheating engine.
Low oil pressure is no joke. Keep driving when the pressure drops and you will seriously damage your engine. If your oil light comes on or you see any other signs of low oil pressure, have your engine serviced as soon as possible.
Generally speaking, you have about 2 weeks or 500 miles of driving before a flashing oil light turns into a legitimate problem. But once it hits that point, things can go downhill fast, leading to serious mechanical damage. So, try to get your vehicle into a mechanic sooner rather than later.
Damage to the wiring harness, a corroded plug or simply an unplugged connection could be the culprit. Once more, it is important to rule out actual low oil pressure by checking the dipstick and listening to your engine.
High oil pressure is an indicator that the oil is not able to properly pass through the bores and reach all parts of the engine effectively. An engine that is not lubricated correctly can face (sometimes instant) wear through friction, damage to its components, and in extreme cases, it can lead to engine failure.
Normal engine oil pressure is between 25 and 65 PSI. While the ideal oil pressure can change depending on the make and model of your car, the general rule is that oil pressure should be above 25 and below 65 PSI (pounds per square inch).
In reality, low oil pressure is a signal that there`s something wrong in the engine. It could be as simple as low oil level (which can be corrected by adding more oil or changing the oil).
In general, if the pressure is below 20 PSI or under the normal range on the gauge it requires your immediate attention. This is also the case when your oil pressure light is coming on. Not diagnosing and treating the problem could lead to serious damage and high repair costs.
No. Driving with low oil pressure or low oil in the system can ruin the vehicle`s engine, completely breaking the motor. If you notice the oil light on while you are driving or while the car is running, you should stop driving and have this problem addressed as soon as possible.
This is normal operation for your oil pressure. The faster the motor spins, (RPM, revolutions per minute) the faster the oil pump spins creating higher oil pressure. Keep in mind, most gauges aren`t accurate. The only way to get an accurate reading is with a quality oil pressure tester.
Driving isn`t recommended when you have a bad oil pressure sensor. You shouldn`t take it lightly, even if you`re confident it`s just an oil pressure sensor problem. Maintaining the correct oil pressure in your engine is critical to keep it functioning. A bad oil pressure sensor can give the wrong oil pressure readings.
When you drive with a low oil level, you risk causing damage to the moving parts of your engine. That`s because engine oil is designed to provide lubrication for the moving parts of your engine. The lower the engine, the most likely these parts will experience friction. This can lead to excessive parts wear.
In reality, low oil pressure is a signal that there`s something wrong in the engine. It could be as simple as low oil level (which can be corrected by adding more oil or changing the oil).

My polaris (Sportsman 700 2002) consumes about 1 litre of oil for every 200 miles. I replace the oil dipstick tube going into the engine,, because ther was a crack at the base, but it wasn’t the only problem obviously. The thing is, that normally when an engine burns oil, you can see smoke in the eshast fumes, but there doen’t seem to be any smoke. everything else goes fine. What’s the next step, because I live in Kuujjuaq situated in the Nunavik(Tip of norhern Qu├ębec) and ther are no qualified mehanics in this town, so I need some to guide me to the next step…
ANSWER : I had that problem some time ago and could not find any leak or there was no smoke. What we found was when I put the car up on the hoist there was a leak under neath the engine. Not enough to run out but when the car was driven it would throw the oil out underneath the car. I forget what one but I think the oil drain gasket was leaking. just enough leak to make the oil disappear. Put it on the hoist and see if your engine area is wet with oil.and pin point the area.
Hope this helps

Does the John Deere series 100 lawn tractor have some sort of safety feature that shuts the engine off if it gets dangerously low on oil? I was cutting grass this morning and the engine sputtered and quit. I got off the tractor and noticed that the oil drain line plug was open and dripping oil. Have I ruined my engine or can I refill it with oil and continue on?
ANSWER : Not sure on this specific mower, but oil is usually there to lubricate and keep the temp down. When theres none in it, it gets hot and melts the pistons. Sounds bad to me

I bought a new mossberg 590 a1 shot gun a month ago, I love the gun but its having a couple of problems, the first problem is that when shooting every once in a while i get sprayed in the face with exuast from shooting through the safety very scary! any ideas whats causing this? how to fix it? second is that some times the fireing pin sticks and the gun will not discharge a round? the third problem is that i have had feeding issues with gun where it will not realice a gound from the tube, ive taken a tip of a knife to the stuck round in the tube and it prys out with little effort, these problems dont happen every time i go shooting, just every once in a while, but they a happening more and more, im conserned cause the gun is brand new, and i wanna be safe while shooting, can you guys help me? any ideas/solutions? please help!!!!!!!
ANSWER : Personally, with that many problems, I’d call Mossberg and get a return authorization. None of these things should be happening, especially with a new gun.

I have a 1996 Sea Doo XP. It has not been started for years. it ran fine when it was parked. I put a new starter on it and had problems starting..plugs were completely soaked with oil. tried to turn it over with plugs out…oil shot through the plug holes to my garage roof!!! what could cause the oil to do that??
ANSWER : Pouring a small amount of oil into the cylinders through the spark plug holes prior to extended storage periods is pretty standard engine preservative procedure.

If the quantity of oil discharged was greater than that, then it may have migrated there on its own by other means. Oil can certainly leak into the cylinders if the engine / vehicle is inverted or left on its side at a steep angle for any period of time. This would not cause any permanent damage but would certainly fill the cylinders and foul the plugs and cause great difficulty starting until the excess oil is eventually cycled / burned out of the system. Just cycle the motor with the plugs out until it stops spewing oil and then try with the plugs in. Keep removing and cleaning the fouled plugs as necessary and then finally replace them with new ones once the engine starts to run normally.

Good luck.

Joe.
