Well my dad and co-worker both say my pressure is whacked and I have no clue what-so-ever. On the gauge on the dash after the car warms up, 2006 6spd by the way, the oil psi is below the 30 mark. When shifting at only 4-4.5k it goes up to around the 90 mark. Shifting gears slowly in town it drops to 30 and goes to around the 60 mark between 2-3k.
Sorry if this is completely newb but I've had 2 people tell me my pressure should be more flat leveled. I have 800 miles and it is a 2006 base model, although I'm sure that makes no difference. And any suggestions if it does seem abnormal, it seems to drive fine but I really don't know what 'fine' is since I've never previously owned one. Should I change my oil at 1k and see if there may be a problem (if there is one! lol). Checked my oil at work and it was at the 'H'. Thanks for any imput and if this is completely retarded I apologise and you can flame me for it :D
Is there any opinion on the lowest or highest it would go under normal conditions?
They were both like "I'd call your dealer and get a new car, that's not normal. I bet they left something in the oil when they built the motor." I thought it was driving beautifly so I was like WTF? Thanks guys, was getting a bit worried for a second.
|Not sure on the type of personalities your adad and his friend possess, but I hope they were joking with you. What you described is compeltely normal. Go back to enjoying your Z, all is well from the oil pressure department.|
