    oil pressure

    Every time I have to clutch in for longer than about 4 seconds while moving, my oil pressure guage drops to 1 or less, blinks red, and beeps. This also occurs about 50% of the time I coast in nuetral for this long. Not sure if this is a problem, but the beeping is annoying me enough that I may make one. please help...

    What are your oil pressures at idle and at 3k rpm?

    Out of curiosity, what oil are you running?

    If the car is almost stalling when you push in the clutch then that would explain the oil pressure dropping that low.

    drops to 1......as in 1 psi?

    Is the idiot light going off in your car when you clutch in? I believe that light comes on well before 1 psi. Where did you source for oil pressure from?

    I think it's either this or the sensor went. Curious what the other pressures are.
