My 84 Rabbit convertible, 1.8L??
Checked my oil level and its fine.
When started, engine cold, oil pressure gauge reads high 5 Bar or so, at both idle speed and when engine up to 3K to 4K rpm.
After engine has been warmed up for a while, like driving for an hour or more on freeway or in traffic, oil pressure when idling goes down to 1 or less Bar, and many times low oil pressure light comes on. Again, checked oil level and its fine. Oil weight is 5W-30.
Anybody know whats going on? I thought multiweight oil got thicker when it is hot?
That is too light weight oil for the engine.
You should be using 20W50 as that is what I run,,, use a good filter, no cheap generics, or FRAM.
Are all know and tested by me for no intermittent flaky flickering light from hades.
What do Divorces, Great Coffee and Cars all have in common?
They all Start with good GROUNDS.
Replace all of them that you can, 99 percent of flakiness will disappear.
