Yeah its mechanical autometer full sweep. I was driving it today and all of a sudden I looked at my gauge and it was at 20 psi and then dropped to 0. My oil light came on and everything. Its wierd. It has done something similar before. But I only saw oil light at idke without the gauge. I put the gauge in and it did it for a day or 2 and then stopped.

Brian, the symptoms you are describing with your oil pressure fluctuating can be caused by a pressure relief piston hanging in the bore.



Do you know the history of the oil filter adapter?

Has it been "modded" around the oil pressure relief port?

Before tearing things down, it'd be worth pulling the filter adapter and checking the pressure relief valve piston and it's bore for a burr/debris and/or a broken/weak spring or some such.

I've seen a modded one create this exact same scenerio, and the poor guy had it hang on a brandy new build, and it cost him all the rod bearings as well as the crank. (again! )


If you end up needing another filter housing and can chase it down in the Denver area, I got a stocker you can have.

... it might be that simple ...



the bitterness of low quality remains long after the temporary joy of a low price has faded

Well Bryan if your light came on too I'd suspect something other than a broken supply line to the gauge. I actually fixed a Talon that had a "brandy new" engine where the builder never blocked the balance shaft oil supply after doing a BSE. That car put over 200 miles on it before we heard anything and the light never came on.

Justin,

Wouldnt that mean that I would be leaking oil fron the bse area where there should be plug. I just had front main seal and that balance shaft seal. im gonna try pulling ofh to check relief valve first. 3073999803 call me so I can pick ur brain on the subject.

I started it up and let it run for 10 seconds or so and I believe it jumped timing. It sounds real bad. And cams are off from each other now. I am so screwed.

I hate to say it but it sounds like whoever did the two seals recently either a: reassembled the timing components incorrectly or b: reused something that should've been replaced (timing and/or balance shaft belt) or c: failed to recognize that the hydraulic tensioner was on it's way out. Regardless, the first step you need to do is pull the front cover, reset the timing, and do a compression test. We'll go from there.

That is some serious suckage Brian! Do you know if your motor has balance shafts or not? Sorry if I you stated that and I missed it.

Timing belt, mech tens, hydrolic tensioner, idler pulley all replaced less than 10k ago. Still under warranty. No I dont have balance shafts. I think maybe oil pump siezed and made timing jump. But I am no expert. I am contemplating finding a motor to transplant.

When I had the seals replaced I had a new belt put on. If all this is caused by timing belt or stuff I had fixed it will be warrantied. I am not gonna mess with it. Im gonna let the shop I brought it to for timing stuff look at it.

I'd love to go to the meetup. The GVR4 may not make it though, since my ECU is fried. Am going to ship it out to Tom/Dave tomorrow, but I'm doubting that it'll be back in time for the meet next Sunday.

Why not send your ECU to Bert Downing in CODSM as he is local and has fixed several ECU's for me.

It's the DSMlink chip that's fried. Bert can't fix that.

I am planning on being there. I haven't had the car out to do anything this year, with work and house stuff and busy life stuff.

As an aside, I plan on going to the next Golden Supercruise which is on Sept 3rd. If you haven't been, there are hundreds of cars and it is quite an amazing show. The only GVR4 I've ever seen there is my own. Good times.
