Oil temp/pres guage


New Member
Just driving back home today and noticed oil temp/pressure guage hit max :shock: virtually straight away and stayed there for a good while before settling back but not quiet to normal.

Any ideas what could be causing this? ECU sensors.

Help appreciated, cheers:)

I would try after market ones if you want to be safe. I have 3 different sets of the 3 gauges and when I tried them out in car they all read differently.

Ahh. Only prob is I'm trying to keep the car original. I'm might order new oil pres and temp sensors if there is not a way of checking the sensors? Once sensors are eliminated I'll do resistance test on wiring then failing that. The guage set.


its more than likely the gauges themselves jamie or a dodgy earth connection to them which will send the needles straight round to max.
if i were you i would locate the main earth wire in the multiplug then cut it and solder in another short lengh of wire to a good earth point behind the clocks
hopefully that should sort it
