    M20J oil pressure anomaly

    Engine oil removes heat, lower oil levels can't dissipate as much heat. As the oil temp goes up oil pressure goes down....

    @kpaul, @DonMuncy we did the same at a shop I worked at, we just drained a single qt at a time into a 1 gallon water/milk jug. We never ran it anything other than our forklift due to the fact it was a potpourri of brands and weights.

    When should I change the oil?

    I change the oil & filter every 40 hrs which gives me a 10 hour buffer if needed. Oil is cheap compared to the parts it protects. Personally I see no point in waiting hours or even days for the oil to drain, warm the oil up either by idling, taxi or flight, warm oil drains better and it suspends the byproducts so they flow out with the oil.

  15. When I got me IR it only took a few weeks for the new plastic to come in, but that was 5yrs ago. When I purchased the plane it took almost a full year, I called several times to see what was going on (web said pending), was told no issues, just backlogged, then they lost all the paper work and I had to send it all back in...3 or 4 weeks on the second try
