You need to replace your oil pressure sender.

I'm betting WIll is right, but you never mentioned the oil level. Still losing oil at an alarming rate??

No I guess I'm not losing any oil. I didn't see any oil on the ground where I parked. Wednesday must've been a great day for me, First I got my speeding ticket throwed out cause the officer didn't show up, I got my L'* back, and then when I pulled out the parking space I didn't see any traces of oil . But I will change the sending unit. I don't want it to go completely out and then I get stranded.

Trig..

What does the dipstick read? The ground is not a very good device for measuring the level of fluid in the crankcase.

As far as the oil pressure sender, is it acctually sending up to or more than 120 psi of oil or is it just an inaccurate reading?

Trig...

You are killing me buddy.

Read the dipstick to tell how much oil is in the motor.
Change the sender.. anything over 80 in that car is either a bad sensor or a serious problem that should have blown it up a while ago.

You need to check the oil with the car OFF. Only the trans is checked with it on.

With the car off, pull the dipstick and wipe it off. Put it back in and pull it out to read it.

Also try and park on level ground when checking.
