2nd owner 53k miles, was wondering what oil pressures most ppl have.
- @ start, idle in 50-70 degree weather - ~50 psi, if revved it goes a bit higher - ~10+.
- after running for 2 hrs - at idle - ~15-18 psi, would go to 30psi at touch of throttle.
btw, i use 5-30w synthetic.
I have the engine manual, it talks about 3-300 psi - which i suspect will never be seen at the sensor, these are supposedly absolute max/min, so completely useless figures.
Also, what do you monitor as you drive, Oil pressure or trip or what ?
in the constant up/down of 101 on oregon coast it is fun to see if you can EVER get into 6th gear !!
also another fun thing is to watch the instantaneous mpg - from 28 down to 3 !!!
also, why the H311 do we not have access to going into 4th w/o resorting to turning off OD, why not a - D, 4,3,2,1 pattern ???
auto is not necessarily smarter than a good driver !!!!!!
ps: i HATE grade assist, way too violent and guess what high revs are NOT so great for an engine - especially a NOT short stroke large 8.1 V-8 even with synthetic oil - personally i do not like to exceed 3500.
pps: I checked the 'events' (30sec duration events) part of allison monitor and I think that some prev driver got into a runaway situation, max rpm 6000 (fuel cutoff I suspect), max speed 81mph, sounds like someone had less brains and too much confidence in 'downhill assist' bs !!
ppps: brakes are MUCH CHEAPER than engines, always use brains over computer 'skills' !!!!!
