Default Oil feed bleeding.

Hey. So this is getting ridiculous and I feel silly. But any one have a clue as to why I cannot get my turbo oil feed line to prime when dry cranking the car? I'm dry cranking for 10 second intervals and have tried several times and am still not getting oil. Thoughts?

If the car hasn't run in a while, it will likely take longer than 10 sec. I have to crank my RX7 for ~30 seconds before it'll build oil pressure on the gauge..

My fresh, never been cranked VE engine built oil pressure in the oil feed in about 8-10 secs of cranking.

Do you have the plugs out to get more engine speed?

Are you getting oil out of the cam oil squirters? You can remove the valve cover and turn the engine over and see.

I'm not sure what my cars deal was. I was finally able to get oil pressure out of the feed line after doing an oil change, but it still took forever. The engine is pretty healthy over all but had sat for 8 months, and the oil in it had only been driven on for about 200 miles. It took a lot of cranking intervals. I wonder if the oil level was just slightly to low, even though the dip stick showed it was correct? Everything seems to be well now though (just gotta find my vacuum leak). Thanks for the help. And yah DEF, I eventually removed the spark plugs, all to now avail before changing the oil.
