    OEM Oil pressure guage intermittent...

    The oil pressure guage has started to play up, usually peaked around 4 bar and sat around 2.5 bar, now it works occasionally but tends to sit at zero and peak at just under 2 bar.

    Any ideas what could be causing it? fixes?

    Check your interior light fuse... mine was blown when the oil pressure gauge started acting funny.

    Funny you mention that, the interior light has been intermittent sometimes too, didn't come on when I unlocked the car this morning but did when I turned it off. I'll look into that, thanks

    I checked the fuse, all good, interior lights working fine too.
    Guess it's just old. Whereabouts is the oil pressure for the gauge taken from? Is it an easily changeable sensor?

    My stock boost gauge did exactly the same, ended up replacing it with an aftermarket gauge.

    Its on the block, same side as the oil filter. Its fairly awkward to get at..

    You need to remove the oil filter first in order to get to the oil pressure sender. Its do-able to remove it without further disassemble of engine parts if you have an angled wrench (bent to reach the oil pressure sender) and small hands).
