hey guys, i read on another forum that a guy was consistently seeing low oil pressure on his R32 GTR, as in... the oil pressure always showed below 3-4 bar... say below 2 bar at idle and when revving no more than 3 or 4 bar...

changed oil, oil filter, and hooked up aftermarket oil sensor gauges, and even a mechanical gauge... confirmed the readings.. still low.

he then commented saying it was a symptom of the backing plate being loose on the OEM oil pump, and used this as his grounds for tearing out the engine and doing a rebuild!!

can anyone explain this? are those actually symptoms of that? and what does it mean that the oil pressure is always consistently low like that?

i asked him to verify this on his build thread im just waiting for him to finish the work... but anyone else know about this?


thanks,

I've heard about something like this, something like the bolts working themselves loose. I dont think it's new though, I'm sure I've read it on here in the past.

Can you tell I'm not a mechanic?:p

seen the odd bolt loose, but one every few years. I would get overly concerned about it.
