The other problem i am having is that after a decent drive at a consant high speed, like around 55 or 65, upon coming to a stop at say a red light, my oil pressure gauge drops from the midpoint to the bottom and bounces back up. it does this until the light turns green or i give it gas to inch forward.
ANY ideas?? thanks
mine does the same thing its a short in the wireing when u hit the brake and the brake lights come on it shorts out my needle even spun all the way arond and now its under the little peg under the low
