My car oil pressure drops when I take my foot off the gas. Sounds perfect and no other problems as far as gages go. But once I cut off the engine I have to let it cool down before I can drive start it ain.

Do you

Do you have any codes in the computer? Have the coolant sensor checked too, both are critical in hot starts
