Re: Assistance neeed for Volvo high oil pressure (jump) above 1300 rpm
We noticed the oil pressure problem fairly quickly, and it remained a problem after the engine warmed up, so I don't think the temperature of the oil is impacting our problem. I am still curious if anyone has seen high PSI with filters that need replacing.
I should give a little more background. Three weeks ago, the engine flooded.
We replaced all of the oil and filters about 5 times until the oil was very clean and the engine ran smoothly. The oil currently looks very clean and is at the correct level. The engine has been running smooth since the incident. I wonder, however, if the oil filter might have taken out more contaminant and simply replacing the oil filter will fix the issue?
However, if high oil PSI is never associated with an oil filter, then there is no need to replace another filter. Perhaps something got into the relief valve, but why happen now after running the engine for 30 hours since the incident?
Should I go get the manual pressure gauge first, or should I change the oil filter first?
