Some of you may have seen my post here: http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/sh...ead.php?t=34704

But i'll just repost it here to be sure... if anyone can shed some light on what's happening that'd be great!


Just jumped in my car to go out this morning and while waiting for the fuel pump to prime (those 3-4 seconds between ACC and ON positions) All my gauges died!

No Boost meters/No Tacho/Speedo ?


I have replaced the "Meters" Fuse only to have it blow repeatedly?!

And to add something else to the mix... the RSM now doesn't pick up speed either! (Not sure if they're related as I thought the ECU Recieved speed from the gearbox sensors?)

And now another thing: My Electric windows don't work! (Yes, Ive checked ALL fuses w/multimeter etc, AND the fusible link thinggy's under the bonnet marked P/WDW)

All OK. Still no luck ?

Please Help anyone? I can't even go to buy more fuses as I have no speedo!

It was a faulty stock boost sensor/connection!

The reason the car wouldn't boost above 5psi is that it couldn't get a reading from the sensor to know how much boost to use!

Believe it or not: When you pull the "Meters" fuse, your windows stop working too! (WTF?)

Can't confirm the RSM Speed reading yet.. but I think it'll be fixed... gonna take it for a drive..

P.S. Funny thing is, i hadn't done any wiring in the car for MONTHS.... hence I was so suprised!

i thought it might have been your kym dodgy backyard wiring special on the new dash/dial group buy we did....

thats good news though dude, now no more searching for ne electric motor for door!!

hahah, me too!

I've got new and improved dodgy wiring techniques for EL gauges now tho!

I just couldn't believe things like windows up/down were affected by a fuse that a boost sensor broke!! WTF!

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
