I have owned a diesel Canyon 2015 since it was brand new. It registers 11 to 13 at idle all the time. I use turbo diesel Mobil one. It is awesome and driving at 75 MPH it is up towards 40 psi. Works for me.I just bought a 2016 Colorado Duramax and the hot idle oil pressure is only 13lpsi is this normal? It was after driving an hour so the oil was definitely up to temp
The name of the game is oil getting to the right places. This is not your '70's oil. It's thin, but engineered to do the job of getting everywhere, even with engines set up tight for emissions. The shear stress on vital parts is less than '70's engines, and the parts are stronger. The "good ol' days", really weren't. My pressures don't get quite that low, even during idle periods during heavy towing. But IMO, it's fine.I just bought a 2016 Colorado Duramax and the hot idle oil pressure is only 13lpsi is this normal? It was after driving an hour so the oil was definitely up to temp
Since you're offroading, are you getting hot? Are you using oil? Any power loss?I have consistently gotten the "Low Oil Pressure" alarm coming on (over the last 3 months) when I'm offroading and come to a stop and idle. 6 or 7psi throws the alarm. I've seen as low as 5 psi.
The dealership has tried to diagnose this problem 3 times. Even contacting "TAC" last time. Each time they could not reproduce the problem, even though I have it documented.
Any help with others having the same issue?
