my oil pressure is always kinda low, hovers just above 0 once its warm at idle. but i just noticed somethign else thats really bothering me, whenever i boost my oil pressure goes way down, and then when i let off it goes back up again. whats going on? if one of my turbo oil seals was bad, could it be possible to only leak under boost, or maybe its leaking all the time causeing low oil pressure and just a lot more once i boost? im thinking its the seals becuase i get a little oil on the lip of the turbo, but maybe its the pump.
your right, i do get a little black smoke when boosting but thats just running rich, and im not loosing oil. maybe it's time to replace the pump the boost thing is really weird though, i did a search and one said it was just low on oil, i just checked mine and it was fine but my oil is really clear, i'll try it again this time after taking a hacksaw to that damn dipstick.
