Its because your head gasket blew, filling your crankcase with coolant, diluting your oil, making it pump oil much faster. Can also be caused by a faulty plenum pan gasket leaking.This can cause an erratic oil pressure.The gakets break and will cause oil to be consumed through the p.c.v. valve into the intake.This gasket is located and mounted to the intake on the bottom side.

What does the saying dodged a bullet mean?

If you dodged a bullet, you had a very narrow escape. The image is of someone actually managing to get out of the way of a bullet fired at them. If you barely escaped something bad, you'd say "I really dodged the bullet." This is usually a figurative danger rather than a literal one -- mostly you hear the phrase in terms of a bad situation at work or home. An example would be "You really dodged the bullet when you managed to convince the boss that you really were home sick yesterday."

What is the water pressure at the deepest part of the ocen feel like?

The deepest point of the ocean is in the "Marianas Trench" and it's called "Challenger Deep" wich is almost 11000 meters deep, the pressure here is literally 1000 times stronger than the normal pressure at sea level, so it would feel like nothing, because u would be almost instantly crushed :)

Why do you have low oil pressure?

I know in my '97 Gmc Jimmy the oil sending unit was bad when I had the same problem holding oil pressure. When I'd start my truck it had almost 40 lbs of pressure that would slowly fall off to nil unless you accelerated. Then the pressure would rise somewhat.

Would a can of coke be crushed due to gravity or atmosphereic pressure in venus?

I think it can because there is a lot of atmospheric pressure so it can be crushed at one point.It would be crushed very quickly. The pressure on Venus is almost 100 times the pressure on earth. The gravity on Venus is less than the gravity on earth, however.

What would happen to the air pressure when the air is sucked out?

The air pressure would reduce.

Is air pressure another name for barometric pressure?

In short, yes. The commonly-reported "pressure" talked about by meteorologists has been extrapolated down to sea level to eliminate pressure differences caused by altitude (air pressure drops much more quickly with height than it does between even the strongest high and low pressure systems). Air pressure sometimes refers to the pressure observed at a location and not adjusted down to sea level, whereas barometric pressure almost always refers to a sea-level pressure. But maybe this is too much information. A better answer would be "yes."

How much pressure would you like?

I like no pressure

According to ideal gas eqation if pressure is double to initial pressure then what happens to the volume?

It would be half of the original volume. As you reduce the volume the pressure would increase and at half the original volume the pressure would be doubled.

Is there any advantage to installing the water pressure tank on the 2nd floor?

if the well pressure switch goes with the tank then the second floor pressure would more closely match the well pressure setpoints and the ground floor would have slightly higher pressure. with the tank and pressure switch on the lower floor the lower floor would more closely see the well pressure setpoints and the second floor would get slightly lower pressure.

What would happen to the pressure if you cooled down the container?

The pressure inside the container would decrease.

Can you produce a lower pressure by decreasing the area a force acts on?

No, in fact you would be increasing the pressure. What you would have to do is increase the area while keeping the force constant which then would decrease the pressure.

How would the air pressure inside a soccer ball change when you kick it?

The air pressure would increase. Then go back to the original pressure after the contact.

Does the pressure dial indicator on a air compressor need to be calibrated?

Almost anything involving compressed air with a dial indicator would need to be calibrated or checked once in awhile. Pressure at the magnitude could be very harmful if not properly handled by someone who knows what they are doing.
