    I want to report on fixing a low oil pressure problem on my 2001 STS. I received a warning light at idle saying to shut down the engine. At a higher rpm it would go out. The engine sounded normal, no tapping or knocks so I figured it was a bad pressure sender. I replaced the sensor and the...

    My 04 started having low and sporadically "--" readings on the rear sensors. This thread just details my experience so far. I purchased two sensors from Rockauto ($46 each) and had my local shop install are re-balance ($10 each). Did the re-learn procedure, everything (surprisingly to me)...

    I've been having this problem during hot weather. My oil pressure will drop to the red mark on the gauge which triggers the oil light. This happens only in IDLE and when the temp outside is hot. It is also random so it doesn't always happen when it's hot outside and the car is idling. It...
