I bought a oil pressure gauge and installed it at the top pf the high pressure oil tank. it reads 50 plus but when the engine is at operating temp and you rev it up slowly to just over 2500rom the gauge starts to drop. The higher the rpm the more it drops till the vehicle gauge zeros and the oil light comes on. I've orderd a new oil pump and hope this is the problem.:dunno:
Today I installed the new oil pump behind the harmonic pulley. Started it up and all was well till it got up to tempurature. Rev it up to 2500 and higher and the oil pressure gauge drops instantly and the light come on. The added oil prssure gauge attached to the top or the high pressure resoivor drops also. New hpop and turbo installed. #8 injector relaced and new vcgasket/ harness replaced. Codes are P1294, P0284, P0476. At idle my icp is 468.92 and duty cycle is 11.72. At 2500rpm it is 1286.85 and 21.09. Oil and filter is new and at leval. I know that installing the new vc gasket and wiring should have gotten rid of the po1294 but hasn't. Any advise and direction would be apprecieted.
Have you cleared codes?
Also, I bet you replaced the #8 cause there was a code for it when, in all actuality, the CPS caused that code.
Have you tried the simple thing of replacing the oil sending unit and checking the harness?
P1294 - High side open bank No. 2 (left)
P0284 - Cylinder 8 contribution/balance fault
P0476 - Exhaust pressure control valve performance
None of those are your issue. I'm not sure why you did a new turbo, or even an HPOP. Your ICP/IPR looks ok to me. Did you do a new UVCH on both sides of the motor? Did you replace just the UVCH or the pigtail feeding it also?
Monitor oil pressure from another spot. Maybe near where the oil sending unit is.
Maybe there is a bad pressure regulator on the oil cooler housing. Maybe there is a broken cooling jet inside the crank case that is just gushing oil. I'm not sure. Just ideas.
Thanks for the reply. I took of the right valve cover and replace the harness/ gasket. I left both covers off and started the engine. I noticed alot more oiling on the right bank and when i reved the engine the oil sprayed all over the fender and wall from the right bank only. I decided to pull all the injectors out and have them sent out for testing. Will know Monday.
