What tests have you run? How did you run them ? what engine are you working on ? If you are following a diagnostic, does it tell you where to sample the pressure? where ? and then what was your reading ? What is your specification ? at what condition ?


If your readings are below spec, the next test, having tried a new pump already, is to put induced oil pressure in the engine, provided you are using the A/C delco parts and you have a good filter and your pump has a good relief valve. Now I must ask... while the pan was off, did you pull some mains ?
