At idle, my '78 308GTB has no oil pressure. When "at full chat," however,(over, say, 1500 RPM, or so), my guage indicates on-or-about 40. Opinions? (It's noteworthy that my car has about 48,000 miles on it.) Regards, -Joe
Those readings are way too low. Min pressure (per the manual) at driving RPM is 65psi. My engines has about 40 psi @ idle; 65 psi and up when driving and @ about 200F. I'd get it checked ASAP and pray its just the sender unit or check valve. And I'd also take it pretty easy until it was checked out.
