GlowShift’s Tinted 7 Color Series Oil Pressure Gauge allows you to monitor your vehicle’s oil pressure in real time, ensuring that your bearings, crankshaft and other vital engine parts stay properly lubricated. This gauge will display oil pressure readings from 0 to 100 PSI with the included ⅛-27 NPT electronic oil pressure sensor.
The Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series
GlowShift’s Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series comes standard with a cutting-edge design that includes a black gauge face and low profile magnified tinted lens. Whether your gauge is on or off, it will look amazing courtesy of this tinted lens feature which is at the heart of the series and gives your gauge a unique, stealth-like appearance. The illuminated red needle sweeps 270° and is powered by stepper motor technology, giving you an effective combination of incredibly accurate gauge readings with extremely smooth needle movement. The Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series comes with the ultra-bright LED solid color modes Blue, Green, Red, Teal, Yellow, Purple and White. Also featured is GlowShift’s 7 Color through dial lighting system which allows you to select and change the color of your gauge lighting display by simply pressing the button located along the front of the gauge. Easily cycle through the 7 Solid Color Settings and 2 Color Cycle Modes that utilize all of these powerful LED colors. Through these options, you can adjust the color of the gauge to match your vehicle’s factory dash lights, or you can customize the color and add your own personal touch and style to the inside of your car or truck. Plus with the Color Memory feature, you won’t have to reset the color of your gauge every time you turn on your vehicle. Your gauge will reflect your most recent color setting the next time it is active. By connecting the orange wire of your gauge to the factory headlight switch, you’ll be able to dim your gauge 30% when your headlights are turned on to reduce the brightness while driving at night.
Why Do I Need An Oil Pressure Gauge?
Oil pressure is one of the most important elements of an engine. Oil is essentially the lifeblood of your car or truck, and while it protects vehicle systems you must also ensure that it is being distributed evenly and efficiently through your engine. If your oil pressure is too low, there could be several reasons why. The most straightforward is that there is not enough oil in the system. This could be caused by leaks or by consumption and evaporation of oil through normal usage, although the latter would happen far more slowly over a much longer period of time. You could also be burning more oil, which is often the case with worn piston rings or an older engine which tends to burn off oil at a higher rate.
This is where your oil pressure gauge comes into play. If you see your oil pressure light come on it could potentially point to engine trouble after it is normally too late, and the first step should be to turn off the engine until you are able to assess the problem. But the issue with an oil pressure light is that it only alerts you to a potential problem after it has already occurred. With an automotive oil pressure gauge, you’re able to consistently monitor your oil pressure levels to ensure that they’re within proper parameters. In monitoring your oil pressure gauge, you will be able to quickly determine whether you feel levels are dipping, or perhaps even running a little bit too high.
Ultimately, oil pressure is important to your car or truck because proper pressure levels ensure that the oil is reaching your vehicle’s pump, lubrication lines, oil filter and other components which must be lubricated. With a lack of proper oil distribution through your system, parts will come in direct contact which can potentially lead to engine failure within hours, if not minutes. Proper oil levels and properly monitored oil pressure ensure that your engine will be fully functional and road ready.
