COULD IT BE THAT YOUR OIL LEVEL IS LOWER THAN IT SHOULD BE?

SEE-UNS HOW YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL PRESCRIBES CHECKING THE OIL'S LEVEL AND THE COOLANT LEVEL ONCE A WEEK

. SURELY YOU CAUGHT THIS.A WEEK AGO?

COULD BE A FAULTY SENDING UNIT.I DOUBT IT'S THE OIL PUMP

INSTALLING A TEMPORARY MECHANICAL OIL PRESSURE GAUGE MIGHT EASE YOUR MIND ON WHAT THE "REAL PRESSURE" IS AN IS IT WITHIN ACCEPTABLE SPECS

BUT BACK TO MY 1ST HUNCH---YOUR OIL MAY BE LOW---"BRAKING" SLOSHES IT AWAY FROM BEING PICKED UP BY THE OIL PUMP---YOUR ENGINE STARVES FOR OIL. THIS IS NOT A GOOD THING!

LET US KNOW WHAT YOU FIGURE OUT
