Re: [DML] Oil pressure sender - always says 80 psi



Marc,
 
OK that's what I was thinking your problem was.  Maybe you could wrap some insulation around it or plumb it a little more out of the way?  I am sure there isn't much room down there on the Legend though.  Would header wrap work?  Assuming heat is the problem, anyway.

Better, as in one that can take more abuse.

I am not sure why the one on the VQ35 did not last too
long.  The oil pressure on that engine is lower than a
PRV, and I have an oil cooler so it should also not be
as hot.  However, I do have the sender mounted
vertically but I don't think that should matter.  It
is possible that it is getting more heat off of the
engine because it is so close to it where on the PRV,
it sticks out away from it.

The reason I am having problems on the Legend engine
may be more clear.  The turbo is awfully close to the
sender and oil filter (the reason I still MUST use the
Purflux filter).  It is a reasonable speculation that
the sender can't take the extra heat. 

I am sure the Midstate sender (as well as the senders
sold by other vendors) is a high-quality unit, and is
reliable on the "stock" PRV.  My applications seems to
require something that can take more abuse I guess.

A specific note on the Midstate unit, Marty was very
helpful in trying to resolve the problem with me.  I
know he does not make the part himself, so there was
only so much he could do to help.

As much as I try to support the DeLorean specific
vendors (and boy did I get screwed last time I
didn't... a story I may tell another time), I try to
support the clubs on the select items they may sell.
