Hello all. Again, new to the small diesel world. Noticed that my oil pressure is around 20psi when fully warmed up. I don’t know if that’s normal or not for these engines so figured I’d ask here. It goes right up when I throttle up. Normal start psi is between 60-70 if very cold. Disregard the trailer at 30ft. I was moving a small 6x12 utility trailer in my yard. Thanks.

These aren't "real " gauges .. But someone added a "real" gauge and said the similarity was just about spot on between the 2. Factory spec is 10 lbs at idle and 36 lbs at 3800 rpm.

My gen2 displays the real oil pressure and it's 19-21 at idle.

I remember back in 2014-2015 that my idle oil pressure was something like 7 psi. Well Ram responded, did a computer alteration and then it read something like 16 psi.

Silly boy, numbers do not always tell a true story.
