thanks for the help.........i'll post their findings & i'm definitely investing in a proper oil pressure gauge
yes the dipsticks on these cars suck to read, you really need to have the car hot to get a good solid idea of where the oil is at. start it up, shut it off and check it don't wait 30 minutes like people say to, that's just a bad idea
