Was looking up the pump I got, says it’s not made for dod/afm cars because they require higher pressure. of course I don’t have dod anymore but was the stock pump a higher pressure one than what I got 10296.
Which Melling pump is everyone running on the 6.0l without DOD? Is the 10295 (std vol, High Pressure) sufficient or is there a need to use the 10296 (High vol and High pressure.) The 10296 seems like overkill on a non dod car.
Generation IV Internal Engine - Oil pump Melling 10295 vs 10296, 295, 296 - Had to rebuild my L76 in my Pontiac G8 GT due to lifter failure. Just a basic job. Re hone and put new bearings and rings in it plus DOD delete and a pretty aggressive cam. Im trying to save cost where I can so Im...
The pan relief valve is supposed to limit the pressure the LVOM see to 65 psi. It was back up for the spring in the pump. The 295 pump is for stock engines/trucks. The 296 pump is the high performance engine pump. The M365 or 10355 is the highest volume for DOD. The LSA also used the DOD oil pump to give the volume needed for the piston squirters.
It your choice, I wouldn’t pull the pan just to do that. Your bypass in the pump starts to open first at around 52 to 55 psi. The one in the pan is a back up to make sure the LVOM doesn’t get hit with a spike of cold oil and blow seals. Unless you have an oil consumption problem that the PCV system sucks in too much oil. No read need to remove it.
Generally speaking, AcDelco GM genuine/original equipment parts line is better than the professional line. Typically, steer clear of much of the rubbish sold by many of the third party sellers on Amazon.
new sensor did the same. so i'm wondering if my old sensor was a dummy type... where it doesnt move much unless its a drastic change...
i'm still seeing plenty of oily pressure so i guess i wont worry about it.
Yes they will always be the same. The scanner and the gauge are both getting the signal from the same sender. Either borrow a manual gauge or buy a quality sender unit. The fact they were the same means the gauge is working well. Just save the time and buy a new sender
I can tell you for a fact----- After finding out how dificult it was to replace that oil pressure sensor an filter on my son's GMC 5.3 engine, that replacing that sensor (an the filter below it if also done), is super easy on the G8 V8 engine.
