Re: Hole in the oil pan= 0 oil psi?
Ditto CJDave post...and also...
Just because you have oil in the pan when stopped is not necessarily enough. To maintain oil pressure, there has to be enough oil in the system to fill the engine, all of the journals, and passages that hold oil when under pressure, including that which must dribble back to the pan to recirculate. If there is not enough to fill-er-up in the pan, and that oil pump sucks air, you will see 0 psi. And when you shut down, there will be oil in the pan.
Good luck, and get the oil pressure back!
BTW, where did the gaping hole come from? There's bound to be a story there. We paid for our ticket on this forum...C'mon, let us in on it!
