You need to hook up a direct pressure reading gauge before driving that car again, even if just to be certain.
Went out to a local meet tonight, driving home my low oil pressure light came on. I pulled over right away and came to a stop, right before I went to turn the key back and shut the car off it went away. let it idle for a minute or two...no light. Pulled away, got up to speed (about 45) and it came back on. Whipped into a Wawa to check it out. Oil level is fine, no weird noises, car still felt okay and drove great all day. Sat for a few minutes there, got driving home and took it super easy, flicked on once and flashed a few times before going off again, then drove home normally and it didn't come on again.
Reasons? I have no oil level sensor, and the oil level looked perfect. I will admit that a bit beforehand I did good pull down the road but it was like...enough before the light came on that I figured why would it come on that far after.
It's making me want to do my oil pump just because, but I'd rather not spend the money if I don't have to. Could it have just been from running it pretty hard? It never did it before though and I've romped on it hard before. It's been running great so I mean I'm obviously going to drive the car the way it was built to be driven.
Any insight is helpful
