Thumbs up

Ok, so my old car had this problem and I fixed it by putting new sparkplugs, sparkplug wires and cleaning the Distriburator Cap. However, this time on my new car, I put new sparkplug wires, it came with new sparkplugs and I clean the distriburator cap. But it still giving me some problems however, I try to clean also the coils which one of them had lots of crap on it. Not sure if that could be a problem but just wondering if anyone have had this same kind of problem?



Also I have another weird problem with the Oil Pressure Gauge. When I turn the Ignition key to on before I actually turn the car on. It go from 0 to pass 100 on the Oil Pressure Gauge and not sure why is doing that. The car seem to run fine and not over heat or anything like that. Beside that, the last thing I did to the car was Pressure watch the engine bay to clean a lot of the dirt that was inside there. I did change the oil filter and the oil seem to be ok, holding between Empty and Full. Any idea what could be the problem?



Thanks In advance everyone!

I said what happen and what I did but this time is not working. So the promble is this,.... When I turn the key into on position before turning the car on. You get your lights on the dash that turn on like the brake, sitbell, exhaust etc... You also get your battery gauge on, and fuel gauge. I would assume that the oil one would move until I actually turn the car on.



So today I just removed the sensor wire and unplug the wire for the oil temp out also and it still read pass 100 when you turn the key into on possition. Before was just a sparkplug wire that needed to placesing. Now it seem more like some kind of bad ground or something like that. Any idea anyone?



So, the other problem is this, when I am driving and stop at a stop light when having my headlights on, I press the brake to wait at the light and the RPM niddle start to bounce up and down and it feels like power is being drain away from the engine. Any idea?
