996 Turbo S Oil Pressure Blips

Recommended Posts

I'm the proud owner of a '05 Turbo S Cab. I have 2k miles on the car and have noticed a disturbing anomaly with my oil pressure gauge. Between 2 and 3 thousand RPM's the pressure will drop from approximately 4 to 3 bar. The spike is sudden almost as if the oil pickup has starved for an instant. As soon as you bring the rev's above 3k the pressure pins at 5 bar and stays there. The oil level has been 1 qt low to full when this happens.I'd like to find our if anyone has notice this potential problem. Thanks for any input

Doug,

I Have the X50 04 model year and it does exactly the same. I also had an 03 tt and that also did it!

Guessed it was the norm.

It may have something to due with the variocam plus. As the tappets switch over there may be a blip in the oil pressure.

I think the manual is pretty clear on this. Oil pressure gauge moves with revs broadly speaking.
