    1995 2.2 rwd 138k miles I had a problem pop up about 15k miles ago where the oil pressure would drop low enough at an idle to trip the "check gages" light. It would only drop this low if the oil was scalding hot after driving on the highway and only at a complete stop. I noticed a small oil...

    I just changed my oil and filter. Long story short I goofed and damaged the sending unit while trying to get at the filter from above. I replaced the sending unit, checked that the oil level was correct, fired it up only to find that my oil pressure was almost 80. Please advise. My oil...
  8. S10 / Sonoma
    so I recently changed the intake manifold gasket and I changed the oil from the milky coffee to fresh oil but my oil pressure gauge doesn't move when I start the truck. It wont move at all. Could this be a gauge issue or an oil pump issue? The truck doesn't over heat anymore and seems to idle...
