1995 Mustang 5.0 Oil Pressure Gauge Question
I have a 1995 5.0 Ford Mustang.
The reading on the oil pressure gauge shows in the word "normal" between the M and the a in normal.Is that high for oil pressure
? And what would that mean? Answer:
When the needle is in the "normal" letters, it means the oil pressure is within the normal range. You may find it varies a bit too, when the car is cold or hot. If that's not where you're used to seeing it, here are some guidelines.A reading too high or too low can be a cause for concern,
or at least a reason to make sure everything is ok with your system.
A too high reading
can be triggered by a plugged oil filter. It can also read high for awhile, after heavy acceleration and then later go back to normal if it's partially plugged.
A low reading
can happen with a car with high mileage or a car with too little oil.
