3.0 oil pressure gauge

1388 2
Hey guys,

you maybe got asked it before....

In which position should the oil pressure gauge on a AA Body / V6 stay while idling in warm condition?
I used Shell Helix HX7 10W 40, full synthetic, oil level is correct (i gues...on that crappy version of an oil dipstick - almost max. on the marked side)

Thanks,
Kevin

The oil pressure gauges on these cars were never really accurate. You'd really have to verify your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to see if it is correct.

OK thanks for info!

I mean it runs like a champ, no ticking noises or else, of course, it burns oil like hell, but getting fixed in spring.
