2004 986 S, Question on oil pressure test

Recommended Posts

Good Day RT members:

 

My Durametric tool done not have the ability to measure oil pressure for my year of car, so I would like to attach a oil pressure test gauge to the 3.2. What is the best port to establish a temporary connection, its location and take readings. (I believe I need the "Euro" adapter?) Is one test gauge pack better to work with Porsche, than another?  I believe I still have a low oil pressure issue after updating the "thermal spring" last year.  After recording the data, I will post so members can interpret. 

 

Thanks.

 

Ed

There should be an existing port on either cylinder head. You can google porsche 996 oil pressure sender to see the pics.

This thread should be useful for the sender and gauge.
