As a casual follower of this thread :>)...is the car running now?
Thanks for that tip about the match and dipstick. I tried it, and the oil does not burn. So, I guess there's no gas in the oil.Take the dipstick out and put a match or lighter to it. Does it burn? If so you have fuel in your oil and you should change it immediately. AND figure out how fuel is getting in there.
That and buy yourself a sandwich adapter and put an oil pressure gauge in. you need to understand your oil pressure and what's going on. The light is not enough information.
I'd be interested in buying it from you. I'm in Alberta, Canada so I'm not sure what the shipping fees would be.No, you need to buy a gauge separately. This just gives you a place to plug in.
you're going to need to get the gauge anywya, so that's already in the cost. The pancake adapter just adds $30 to the equation
PM me, I might be willing to dig mine up and sell it to you with a gauge. OF course as soon as I do, I'll need it again!
By the sounds of it, then, the sandwich adapter was kept in for a significant period of time? How long? And, does the pressure gauge that you purchased come with hosing and with brass adapter fittings? If not, what size hose and fittings did you get for it and where?I bought something like this, something that I snaked into the passenger compartment and attached below the glove box so that I could see the oil pressure while I was driving
