Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no noise from the engine
VW Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Im not sure you have any problem here, your oil pressure appears to be with in VWs specs. The factory specs at idle , should be 1.2-2.1 bar (17.4-30.4 PSI) of pressure. At 2000 RPM, there should be 1.6-2.1 bar (23.2-30.4 PSI) of pressure and at 3700 RPM, there should be 3.0-4.5 bar (43.5-58 PSI) of pressure.

why at 2000rpm the pressure pass 45lsb and drop to 25lbs a 2000rpm
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
iddle the pressur is 16 lbs a think that is to low no??
VW Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

23 to 30 PSI is consider normal at 2000 RPM. Im not seeing a problem here if your readings are correct. The pressure need to be measured when the RPM is steady, Yes 16 is a bit low but you stated it was at 25 PSI at idle. So now its at 16 PSI. If you are not getting any engine noise I do not think you have a problem here.

you do not have the same spec than me the spec i have is at 2000 RPM 2.7 to 4.5 bar.. so 39.5 to 65 psi.. what is the good spec??
VW Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

There are the Specs I have.

At idle, there should be 1.2-2.1 bar (17.4-30.4 PSI) of pressure.

At 2000 RPM, there should be 1.6-2.1 bar (23.2-30.4 PSI) of pressure.

At 3700 RPM, there should be 3.0-4.5 bar (43.5-58 PSI) of pressure.
