I have to do it 4 or 5 times before it catches and smoke starts to come out of the stack. Any ideas on why this happens?

Should I be concerned about the high oil prssure?
As the others have said something could be blocked but unless it's making any strange knocking noises I agree with Matt. IMHO I would check the oil pressure with a different gauge if for nothing more than knowing for sure. I know I would feel better knowing if it's the gauge or something more.Matt Kirsch wrote:High oil pressure *could* indicate that a passage is blocked, preventing oil from getting somewhere.
If you ran it over an hour, and it didn't seize on you, you're reasonably safe.
