Oil pressure light at idle...

If any of you followed my submerged antics, you know I just saved a hydro-f*cked and seized 3.8 after it sat a month. Well its got 14 miles on the motor, oil looks GREAT, doesnt smoke anymore- but once it gets hit the red OIL LIGHT OF DEATH light comes on.

I am going to swap the filter, may or may not swap the oil already with or without Seafoam... probably will change the oil again actually before trailoring it out to HF or TORR tonight.


I know I need a oil pressure guage, IDK if I wanna fuck with it before towing it off to its possible 3rd death. LOL Any suggestions?

PS- its not a daily driver, 3.8s are cheap and I already have a 5.3L in the garage. I just want to keep this one alive for a few more runs.

Soon to be a vendor!!!
Looking for a good Rat Rod JK donor vehicle.

I doubt swapping much or any more snake oil tricks are going to get you very far. Put 10w-40 in it and keep driving it until it quits.

Fill it with 140 gear oil..... Won't leak, smoke or knock. Also won't barely crank over when cold but that's a minor thing


Don't laugh, Had a friend who did this to his F150 302 years back.
