Re: oil pressure and ABS brakes

I've noticed alot of people's oil pressure is different... If it gets below half way on the gauge for a long time, i'd be checking oil levels.

Straight after a change, it should read high, esspecially if you've filled it up..

Re: oil pressure and ABS brakes

no two engines will have exactlly the same oil pressure it depends on different things.. mine reads straight up and down all the time and slightly lower when idling
