ST165 Factory Oil Pressure Gauge, typical readings?

Wed Oct 03, 2018 7:53 pm

I just bought an ST165 (88 Turbo All Trac). The oil pressure gauge is always reading seemingly low, always in the 10 to 15% range. The dealer says that is normal, but it doesn't seem right. Where do you fellow ST165 drivers see your needle pointing during normal driving conditions?

That’s normal readings.

At idle, my needle sits at just a tick below halfway on the at first bar.
