I am away on holidays up in rockhampton and after playin in the mud yesterday I am having my oil warning light come on after a while of driving. My worry comes because I have to drive back to Brisbane on Tuesday and it concerns me that the light is on.

I have cleaned the engine bay out and everything else. What else should I be doing?


Does anyone know what's going on o happening??

These two pictures are when I hold rpm and idle.

If the gauge still reads as it usually does, the problem will be the sender.
When it dries out, it may come good.

Does your oil pressure sender have the rubber hose hanging out the back?

Sender for sure.

If you want find a supercrap auto and fit a Tridon part TPS017, 1/8BSP nissan oil pressure sender. The gauge on the dash wont work but the oil light will read correct. You may need to chop the ends of the original sender cable off but meh.

The TPS017 switch is common as as everything RB (inc Commonwhore), TD, TB ect uses them. Costs about 10 - 15 bux.
