Mine is still pegged out. I have owned it for three years now and it has never changed. Not worth the $70 to me to replace it. I just keep an eye on everything else

Jshelton, it'* important to know what your oil pressure is at all times to monitor for problems, especially on the L36.

Les...did you recently have your oil changed or any additives added?

Any idea what brand of filter is on the car.

Jshelton..shame on you. $25 gets one around here. Git'r done or we are sending Wren over.

I don't have an L36 . Come to think of it, I replace that dang thing before and it didn't change a thing. Still pegged out.

What makes it more important on an L36?

When the upper intake fails, you can see the water decrease the viscosity of the oil on the pressure gauge as the engine runs poorly.

exactly. or if there is lower end damage the oil pressure will drop too.. atleast you'd have enough time to shut the car off before the engine seized, or threw a rod..

Ok..let'* get this one back on topic.

Honestly..engine seizing or rod throwing isn't as common as it might seem. Plus..if the person realizes they have a pressure gauge, they'd probably realize the bad sound is coming from their car and turn if off from common sense.

Les...filter and last oil change info please.

Thanks
