Ensure the sender has good contact with the engine block & all earth points have good contact & corrosion free.

Yup check your sensor. I've heard of the sensors riding high all the time but not down low, but I'd say its just a sensor problem.

Ensure its contacting correctly, else you'll need to buy a new one.

Re: ef xr6 oil pressure

thanks for the reply "spalding green" and "honer", the sender unit is new, would there be a particular earth behind the dash at all? the car was put in at ford this morning but they could not find anything , (not surprising though)!, it has actually been good all day, maybe they have moved somthing and ir has fixed itself......... see how it goes.... by the way would there be asite on the net like this for holdens i have a mate who has problems?

Re: ef xr6 oil pressure

Had the same problem on my AU.

Changed sender unit, changed oil - No luck.

Then I ran an extra earth cable from the engine block to the body - FIXED !
Cheap too. I just got an auto-elec to make me up a cable with those flat washer bits at each end. Just bolt these in infront of existing bolts on the block & body.

Wheels: 17" Series 1 XR
Exhaust: VCT with no resonators & 3" mandrel from mufflers back, dump pipe
Pacemaker headers (Waste of money).
Air Intake: T-Series, K&N Filter.
Brakes: Calipers painted red, DBA slotted rotors & Lucas pads.
Windows: Tinted.
Gearstick: Shortened.
Fuel: Dual Fuel.
Dyno: 143 rwKw (Dynodynamics - shootout mode).
Heathcote: 15.87 @ 89.1 Mph.
