Oil gauge

Post by jvbram »

Is the oil gauge the oil pressure or oil level. Would a low readind, red flashing light, on trd with 450k indicate that its time for a rebuild?

I'm fairly sure it's for oil pressure and if the needle is on the red then either the sensor has broken or you've lost pressure.

What model of BX? If it states no "Bar" in the reading, its, just the level. If the low pressure light is flashing, I would measure the oil pressure and if OK just change the sensor. Or just change the sensor if meter not available..

A BX oil pressure gauge has figures, the level gauge does not.
