    205 GTi 1.9L oil pressure

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    Can anyone give me an indication on where the needle should sit on the oil pressure guage for the 1.9 205 lump?

    It doesnt seem to be low and the light never comes on, but I am unsure of where normal pressure is.

    Just wanted to know was all.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    My 205 seems to sit exactly half way while the engine is warming up, or accelerating. Once the engine is warm it drops to about the second bar on the gauge.

    According to the Haynes workshop manual it should sit half way all the time.

    Hope this helps,

    Dan.

    Ch,

    My 93 with 150Kkm sits at just over halfway on start up with 15W50 Shell Helix Plus.
    Drops to just under half when warm.

    Much better than a Lancia I had once that used to drop to zero at idle with the oil light glowing when hot! Time to get rid of it!
