I suspect not enough lubrication backed by the revs clear it (more rpm more oil pressure). Also coincidentally the thicker cold oil stays in channels with less pressure. Does your oil light go off quickly at start (I have 3.0 but if it takes more than 6 sec. to clear the oil light I'm very low on oil.


Oil is Castrol 5W40 (ll01) and just filled it up. There is no oil light staying at startup. There used to be until I fixed the valve issue inside the oil filter housing.



I will do the cylinder testing tomorrow probably..


Thanks,
