S3flyer Posted June 9, 2012 Report Share Posted June 9, 2012 Of course, my VDO oil pressure sender got jealous with the attention I giving the fuel pressure sender issues. It failed with the typical symptoms but I have a couple spares in the hangar and promptly replaced. Oil pressure read slightly higher (mid-50s versus high-40s) with the new VDO sender but were solid for my first 1.3 hr flight. Fired up the plane a week later, oil pressure reading OK and steady on run-up. Took off, left the pattern and 15 minutes into flight, the oil pressure went up to about 75, then slowly down to 55 and bounced around 55-75 as I hung a U-turn back to the airport. Did a little trouble shooting today and I'm 99.8% certain it's the sender (again). 1.6hrs to failure has to be a new record :mad: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
