1990 Ford T-bird, 130,000 miles, 3.8
I have replaced the oil pressure switch/sending, I have checked all fuses and they all were good, car has a fresh oil change, yet with all this gauge reads zero on dash board. I noticed that when I turn the car to the on position without turning it over the oil gauge moves from zero and then reads normal, but once I turn the engine over and the car is running the oil gauge drops to zero and the check gauges lite comes on. Even when giving the car gas the gauge continues to read zero without. Even when I drive it it reads zero.
I would also like to add that after the car has set for a day or so its hard to get it started I have to turn it over maybe 15 times before the car will start and stay running. After I get it running, once I cut it off the car will start and run with no problem. Motor sounds good with no knocking sounds in starting the car and while its running. Although when trying to get it started afterit has been sitting for a day or so it putt putts a bit and then smooths out, running great. I changed fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. Still have problem
Could these two problems be related? Some one told me that they could be. Please help. Soon as I can I will make a donation to the site.
have the same problem?
