  1. Alfetta GT low oil pressure when warm

    Engine Repair, Diagnostics & Rebuilding
    Within the past two years I did a full rebuild on the 2.0 in my Alfetta. New everything other than the timing gear bushings in the block and front cover, and the oil pump since they are so hard to come by. Engine runs absolutely great. Upon a cold start it has 75psi of oil pressure. If I rev it...
  2. '86 Spider Oil Pressure Light Issue

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)

However recently I notice that the oil pressure gage always fluxuates from 57 Lb to zero, even when cruising at 55 mph...
