If the pressure drops too low at idle, it’s a safe bet that the engine is suffering from wear. It’s also a perfect application for a higher weight oil. The heavier weight will slipp through the spaces lesss readily and allow the pump to maintain pressure.

same, hooked up a pressure gauge to it and it reads 25psi when cold @idle. and 5 psi when fully warm, when warm it will rev around to 3000rpm no probs. and the pressure reads 37 psi. The manufacture's specs are above 4.3psi idle and 18-42 psi @ 3000 revs, so.

If you have low oil pressure at idle, make sure that your engine’s oil level is correct. Check your dipstick and make sure it’s not under the MIN mark. If you have a low oil level, the oil pump can suck up air from the sump and make a low and fluctuating oil pressure. Not sure I'd agree with low oil pressure as a reason to not idle. I think its more about cylinder wash and the potential to not burn all the fuel due to a decrease in engine temperature. A diesel may not stay at operating temperature when idling for prolonged periods. Using a high idle mechanism helps the engine stay at operating temperature. Fuel or coolant in the oil will cause low engine oil pressure. Excess fluids in the oil consequently will cause high oil levels in the crankcase. High oil levels in the crankcase will generally always point to excessive fluid leaking somewhere else in the engine. Common contaminants include diesel fuel, coolant, or water.
