These gauges are galvanometer-type
It is conceivable that the coil in the gauge may
have a broken wire that only opens when the
gauge is warmed up. If you are having an
intermittent gauge problem, leave the vehicle
running for a while and watch the gauge. If the
system the gauge monitors is OK, but the
gauge is reading full scale one way or the other,
then you may have this type of problem.
Fill the fuel tank, if necessary, to obtain a
reading greater than empty.
engine running, the oil pressure
should be approximately
kPa) at 2.000 rpm,
Make sure shift lever is in neutral before running
With the engine cold, the gauge should read off
scale to the left and, when warm, the reading
should be 190- 230°F (86 - 110%).
