i got some guages a few weeks ago and a buddy of mine installed them for me....but only 2 of them work...and the one that we couldnt figure out was the oil temp....is there some kind of adapter plate i need to get?
and if so what size do i need to get so far as the thread size goes?
well my truck comes stock with the oil pressure guage...i just need my oil temp hooked up
so what your trying to say is i can hook it into that little hole in the oil filter housing...ok...ill try that and see what happens....thanx for the info
It has a "dummy gauge" that is designed to make you think it has an oil pressure gauge.
The stock oil sender is simply a switch that engages as long as you have 5 psi oil pressure. If you have 5 psi, and the engine is running, the ECM moves the needle on the gauge to an approximation of what it thinks your oil pressure should be for the temp and rpm. If you have less than 5 psi, the gauge reads zero and the CEL comes on with a code about low oil pressure.
Your real oil pressure is much different than what the gauge on the dash shows.
