Hi,

What is the normal oil pressure in a 1.7 16v boxer engine at normal temp?

My show aprox 1.2bar @ 900rpm and aprox. 4.5bar @ 5000rpm, it's normal?

There is another think, the oil pressure light retard 3 seconds to go off after the engine is stopped for 2 hours, anyone knows why?

Thanks

seems normal for the pressure to rise like that with the revs
i wouldnt concern yourself with the actual pressure but rather watch for a long term or especially a sudden loss of pressure
i have tried switching same sender units and gauges from my spares and you get different readings. i use the one that reads the highest:D

if your oil light takes time to go off it could be your oil filter doesnt have the non return valve
