God i hope its something simple.....uhg....
I know the oil was just changed before i picked it up...but I will ask him what oil he used
and I will make note of the filter...

Ill keep ya posted as I won't get it back til at least wednesday...
had some issues registering it with the title still branded salvage...thr seller which is the autobody
guy that did the work, is in Mass. and Im in RI and he had to apply for the clear title so he
could sell it to me...pain in the ***..took the a$$holes at the RI DMV 3 times to get me straight..1 call to MA and i was squared away...I am not liking the RI registry

Thanks for all the info...

Some more info on the subject...

Looks like "low oil pressure is often a contributing factor in engine failures. The underlying cause may be a worn oil pump and/or excessive clearances in the main and rod bearings as a result of high mileage wear or neglect (not changing the oil and filter often enough)."

Any more thoughts on the causes of low oil pressure, and the best way to prevent it?

whats wrong with fram filters? i use em all the time, just want to know why they are bad, and what one would better replace it. As far as oil pressure, my car has about 50,000 klm on a new engine, and i see around 30 psi at idle and around 50 or so at about 24000 to 25000 rpm. using valvloline full syn.
