I hope this is either a typo, or that your 5 cyl is different than mine. I
can only fit about _4_ quarts into my 87...
>Am I correct that the buzzer goes off due to low oil pressure?
Sensor. Known failure. Other posts have talked about plugging in a gage,
but I'd bet a beer the sensor bought it...
>3) Oil pressure detector malfunction - Some of my vacuum lines are old.
>Can this be the cause? Does the oil pressure check even use vacuum lines?
Vacuum lines don't carry or detect oil pressure. Get yourself a new sensor.
