Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Do you own a scan tool that can check the ICP pressure while cranking?

If you remove the oil sensor from the top of the high pressure oil reservoir is the oil within 1 inch of the top?
