Re: [DML] Oil pressure sender - always says 80 psi

Marc and others,
A few years ago I bought one of the 'new' senders from DMC Midwest Connection.  It has worked exactly as it should - around 30-40 when hot, and around 70 when stone-cold.  This is with a Purflux filter and Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W40 HDEO.  
I don't know if they still sell them, but that one is the one to get.

I have yet to find a reliable sender.  Some read very
low, some read very high, and some pin the needle
straight up (beyond 80 PSI).

They will work fine for the first few drives after it
has been replaced, but within a month (my experience
has been that) they all fail.

Granted, I have not gone through the list of DeLorean
vendors to try the part from each of them because I
assume they are all using the same GM cross-ref part.
