I have a few problems, the trans slips but the base oil pressure I believe is low. the manual says 18 psi at 1400 rpm's. is that idle? I have a tach lead for a fluke meter but it is giving me a way off reading I think. I also have low compression with quite a bit of blowby coming into the air filter housing from the vent. I also have some engine noise. can the low base oil pressure cause the trans to slip in the auto tranny's? I'm wondering if a top end redo and an oil pump could solve my problems. if anybody has any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated.
