Low Oil Pressure and The Oil Filter

Do you have a problem with the low oil pressure sensor on your generator? Chances are it is fine and really all that is wrong is your o-ring on your oil filter getting in the way. When it is not fitted correctly and the oil filter does not seat properly inside the engine it results in low oil pressure. Either oil can not make its way up to the pump or it sucks in air from the leaking o-ring resulting in nothing being pumped up to the sensor and the rest of the engine.

BEST way to remove engine sludge (prevent low pressure)
One of the biggest culprits that causes low oil pressure is engine sludge. Especially when it builds up on the pick up tube in the oil pan. Do you want to be proactive when it comes to keeping the sludge out of your engine. Changing your oil every 3000 miles is a good start. Even if synthetic oil starts to look dirty it's a good idea to change it. This video shows an effective method on how to get the grit out of your engine. Hope you enjoy the video.





Low Oil Pressure Warning Light - (Quick Fix)
The dreaded oil pressure light definitely the light that i do not want to see. This can cause the most damage and the fastest way to kill it engine. So i found a real easy way to fix this problem i simply drain out the oil and I take this pic and I start to feel underneath the oil filler tube. Then i use a toothbrush and I get in there and i scrub that screen really good. So then what I do is I close it all up then I'm going to take off the oil filter and put a tube right in the center of the where the oil filter goes. Ok now what I'm going to do is I take some clean kerosene and I go ahead and I get a pump and I start pumping it through this tube from where the oil filter was connected. And this is going to push more kerosene down onto that screen go ahead and pour more down the oil and then in the morning go ahead and dump out that kerosene and you're going to see a lot of grit come out and because of the night of soaking this is really going to help clean it. Now this is the grit that's the problem and this is causing that low oil pressure. So this was truly a quick fix I mean usually it's like two to three days because the oil pan off so 20 minutes doing this that's great. So go ahead and put the oil back in the car and at this point go ahead and turn on the car and there's no oil light so everything seems to be working great. So if you like what I've got here please like and subscribe.





Is this oil pump good?
Trying to found out if my oil pump is good or not. I turning it with my 1/2 impact with min air pressure. THE ENGINE HAS NO BEARING OR RODS. THE BLOCK AND CRANK ARE BAD-CAN"T BE RE-USED. So as everyone can see it's pumping oil. It's pumping faster then I can pour it in. What do you think? Update-1: Oil Pump is perfect shape. IPSmotorsports said it was bad. Their stupid to be running a shop. They will never work on any of my cars again. The new rebuilt short block only lasted 735miles. They still will not back their own work. Update-2: Had the oil pump checked out by engineers. They told me that the oil pump was 100% good. p.s. All the oil is going into a big tub that you can't see in video :)





How Oil Pressure Works - EricTheCarGuy
How Oil Pressure Works - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Here is the second offering from last weeks set of videos. The most important thing to note with this is that oil pressure is not created by the pump but rather the resistance to the outlet flow of that pump and part of that resistance is the clearances between the bearings and the other parts inside the engine.
