- 2001 formula
Guys I am new here this is my first post. I purchased a 2001 firebird formula with a broke rod. Anyways I purchased a 58Kmile engine from the junk yard and put it in the car and got it running the other day. It runs and sounds like new. Having never driven this car I dont know what the normal engine parimeters should be. The engine water temp stays at 210 degrees never any higher. The oil pressure is about 20psi at idle and accelerating it goes up to about 50psi and at cruise with automatic transmission the engine rpm 1500 the pressure is 40 psi. What do most of your cars operate at? Thanks.
