So to clarify, you finished rebuilding the motor and there is a problem with oil delivery so the engine can't run and you are selling as-is. Do you have any history or paperwork on the car?. Also I couldn't see from the pictures but does the car has ABS or has it been converted? Where in Virginia? TIA

Its been converted from ABS. When you start the car, it holds 35 pounds of pressure, and then when it gets hot, it goes to zero. I'm in Harrisonburg, VA. If you need to know anything, you can call International Auto Parts, or you can also call my mechanic. Thanks!

Does that oil pressure light turn on? They are on separate systems. Please verify with an auxiliary gauge that you really are losing pressure. The v6 pressure senders are known to be flaky. I felt bad reading this, I know what a bummer it must have been to see no oil pressure....

The oil pressure light does not come on..... The last two times that I let it go, I ended up replacing 2 sets of lifters, and a set of cams. I really don't know what to do. Thanks for empathizing, with the situation.

After a car has gotten hot and the oil has thinned, the pressure is supposed to get lower isnt it?

I'm with Grant. If low pressure warning light isn't coming on it may be fine. You really should verify oil pressure with a separate mechanical gauge to make sure you have a real engine problem, and not just a common immaterial oil pressure sender problem. At hot idle many show close to 0 lbs on the gauge. It makes the difference between the car being worth very little and a nice driver or better.

I can verify the oil pressure sender (for the gauge) sucks. I replaced one and it worked for all of a week and a waste of like $50. As long as the idiot light comes on you are likely fine. That ancient idiot light technology is pretty solid :) Just make sure the light doesn't flicker or come on under load like higher RPMs or higher G turns.
