I have concerns that the oil pressure on my 1998 Type R is low.
At idle it's hovering just on the edge of the red zone of my gauge, presumably about 0.5 bar.
At 2000rpm it's around 2 bar and 3000rpm 3 bar. it peaks at 4 bar. All when the engine is hot of course.
Cold start up sees 6 bar.
The engine is running on 10w-40 at the moment, so it's not a thinny.
On cold start I hear a brief (1 or 2 secs) deep knocking, as deep as a crank knock, but as soon as oil pressure is up, it's gone and it can't be heard when the engine is warm.
Can anyone give me any clues please.
