Will the car run with no oil pressure sender unit???
Ok, here's the deal....My oil pressure is all over the place...jumping from 10 to 100 psi erratically. like the guage is making a bad connection at the sender unit. This is a relatively new sender unit (15k miles and about 3 years old) Here is what has me stumped. I went and bought a cheap mechanical oil pressure guage to check the oil pressure and after installing it in the stock location(what a pain in the @ss) the car won't start. It won't even turn over. Did i knock something else loose in the process or will the car not run with no oil pressure sender unit? any help would be great.
It shouldnt have anything to do with it. I've never tried on an FD though, but I cant imagine them running any part of that circuit through the ecu. I'd say you pulled the starter's trigger wire off while jostling stuff around in that area.
