low oil pressure

Recommended Posts

after hose replacement oil pressure would slowly drop from 40s to 20s.  oil levels ok. Aux pressure gauge confirmed engine gauge readings. What next. Oil regulator?

First visually check the lines for the oil tank to the pump to make sure you don't have a kinked line. Especially the line the goes from the cooler to the oil pump.

Based solely on experience with other aircraft engines I would say to check the oil pressure relief valve for debris. It is possible that a little piece of something found its way to between the ball or mushroom and the seat.
