Frontera 2.2 16V Oil pressure help please

  1. Hi
    I have low? oil pressure on my 2.2 petrol Frontera...when hot and on the
    move, say, 50-70mph, the oil gauge needle sits just over a quarter on the
    gauge. At standstill, on idle, it sits on, or just above the red on the
    gauge. The oil pressure light does not come on however...
    I have changed the oil pressure switch, no difference.
    Is the oil pump adjustable, to enable me to increase the pressure? Any other

    end might be worn and loosing pressure. Either way, pressure that low aint

  4. What oil & filter are you using and when were they last changed?

    A cheap or old filter & oil can cause problems.
