My S500 has 39,000 miles but the oil pressure at idle when hot and in gear with the foot on the brake is reading at 1 bar. Is this normal for these cars? It moves up to 3 bars when i drive away at 1,000 rpm.
Thanks

You might want to try and ask this question in the W140 section for better response rate. For what its worth , although the one is a little on the low side, it does fall into the acceptable range as per merecedes who give a range of .3 to 3. Pegging at 3 when driving is normal. What oil viscosity are you using in your car? It should have a upper viscosity range of 50.
Do a search in the w140 section for other possible explanations.
