A few people have mentioned the oil pressure. One thing I wasn't clear about
was that the pressure only drops when idling, and then only after the engine
has fully warmed up.
While driving, it always stays between 20-50.
I would like to make sure there is no serious problem though.
When I talked to the PO about it, he said that the oil pressure has always
been like that (and he said he drove it for months like that with out seeming
to have any trouble). I did check for play in the crank shaft, and couldn't
feel or see any movement, doing the push in the pulley, then have someone
push the clutch test.
With the amount of driving I did before and after buying it, it doesn't
feel like the engine has no oil pressure while idling. (I can't imagine
it would keep running for long like that.) Of course I am being optimistic
Thanks for any help.
