[DML] Re: oil pressure [was: Speaking of Oil..]



My car holds at the line below the 80 psi mark.  Don't know what this 
line represents, I guess it to be 70 or 60 psi.  At idle (750-800 
RPM) it runs around mid scale (40 psi).  If I bump the idle to 900 it 
shoots back up to the line before 80.

So mine is very sensitive to the low RPMs.
