EF-EL XR6 /Oil Pressure readings
While i'm having this valvetrain noise issue, i thought i'd try to get oil pressure readings from my car using the EF-EL diagnostic odo meter modes.
As what Xyphoid outlined in his website, mode 4 should have oil pressure reading on the bottom line and voltage reading on the top line. But after checking my car and dads EL i foundout that falcon models without the sports dash ie(no oil pressure guage and volt meter) it doesn't show the oil pressure.
So for a base model dash the top line displays 0 and bottom line is voltage ie shows between 12.5 and 13.1.
Can anyone who has an EF-EL XR get the reading from mode 4 bottom line and post what oil pressure figures there getting and what the oil gauge is showing.
Another thought it perhaps the base model has a different mode to enter oil pressure readings.
