what did you find on your car


Actually, few months back, I replaced head gasket and after few hundred miles the oil pressure light would come ON randomly. I thought it might be pressure sensor switch. So I replaced the oil pressure sensor switch. The light still kept coming ON, I replaced the oil filter and also checked the oil pressure and it ranges from 10-85 psi depending on idle to very high rpm (but this test was done when engine was cold). Please note: There is no milky engine oil or low coolant or any blue/white smoke. Engine temperature gauge also stays in the normal range. ================== Thanks a lot for helpful replies to all of you :) ==================
