SO, any ideas on why is stuttering. Like I said I will try to get video, but I am really getting frustrated. I suppose I could probably use some injector cleaner, but I know that is no magic cure. And, I still have the oil pressure issues.
Here'* the question...the only ideas I have heard is the oil pump, the actual sensor or bearings. My only clue is that the pressure starts out fine, and after driving a few miles it drops significantly at idle, like while stopped for a red light. Why would the pressure decrease after driving. I can see it dropping while idling, but I mean it goes from like 40 to down to the red.

Pull and number all 6 spark plugs. Then shoot a pic of them for us. They'll tell the story.

You can rule out the sensor. It wouldn't do that, even if it'* failing.

SO, start her up, pull her across the street to check the plugs....and now it won't start again. And, YES, I put them back in right. I think the battery is drained again. Gotta figure that out.
For now, her are the pics of the plugs. Only got to the front three so far. Hope the pics are good enough, the wife took em. If you need close ups, let me know.

We need a better view of the working end of the plugs.
