OIL PRESURE

1986 Subaru GL

Engine Mechanical problem
1986 Subaru GL 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

My 1986 subaru gl the oil pressure starts out at 45+
psi but once the engine gets warm it drops to almost
0. Do the oil pumps go bad on these or may be cam or main bearings?
thanks bob

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, if normal replace the oil pressure switch. If abnormal could mean oil pump and/or engine bearing.
