Oil pressure at zero during idle
Posted 07 November 2003 - 01:57 PM
When it is sitting parked, the oil pressure is at zero or nearly zero according to the gauge. I cannot remember if the last time I saw that was when it was cold or hot.
I have to rev it up to get the oil pressure to come up.
Is that a problem? Does the oil pump need to be changed? If so, where it is located and how hard is it?

My oil pressure was very low and I checked and found out the sending unit on my rig (a brat) actually came from an imprezza. Switched to the right one and I now have oil pressure to spare. You may want to check it out.
HUGE HUGE HUGE Difference between his car (EA-82) and your Brat (EA-81). If you have an EA-81 that reads 0 or little oil pressure at idle then there is a serious problem! Good thing you found it had the wrong sending unit.
