RE: 220D Oil pressure relief valve?
Well,The guage used to read fine at 30 on startup,at least I thought this was a good pressure?
When it caught my eye as maybe malfunctioning...It would register 45,and then barely back off if any at all.
I even drained a little of the oil thinking that I might have overfilled It a bit.
So,this standard guage reads as follows (0,15,30,45)
It should be at the high pressure end all the time (45)?
I thought it should fluctuate more as the RPM's were increased.
I'm a newbie owner so all wisdom is much appreciated.
Persistance is "KEY" !
