My buddy and I set off from Burlington, VT in his silver 91 200tq on
Friday and drove both these cars back from Portland, ME on Saturday
through the white mountains, needless to say, lots of fun.  Can anyone
help with the question below?

Can anyone help with this?  Just picked up this great Pearl '91 200
TQ.  It's a killer great car, but the oil pressure warning on the
autocheck system comes on between 2k and 3k rpm.  Above about 2800,
it's on constantly, so on the highway at least it quits beeping.  But
around town its on and off constantly.  Previous owner said it's just
in instrument cluster gremlin, which I'm inclined to believe, as he
put 75k on the car and said it was a problem all along.  Also, I do
notice the oil pressure guage tends to run a little low, e.g. mid
range or lower when idling, and just above midrange when engine is
working or revving.  Could this be the pressure sender?  Anyone have
experience with this problem?  Thanks for any help.
