Hi all - can't wait to get hands dirty rebuilding a 1990 Audi 90 (non Q - sorry, could not locate
one). I have a couple of questions to get started. Guages - I have an oil temp guage and an oil
pressure guage in my car - the oil temp rarely moves above 160 degree mark but the oil pressure
has really got me bumfuzzled. There is no way of knowing how much oil pressure I have - it guages
from 1 to 5 ?!?!?! What is this? Does it have a PSI meaning? Mine pretty much stays put at
maximum pressure until after a few miles and only usually while waiting at a stoplight does it
move into the 3-5 range. Is this normal? Will the collapse of the oil breather tube cause the
pressure to increase? I did not notice this until I Slick 50ed the engine. Now it seems the oil
pressure is ?too high? - is it possible?
OK - well I have tons of questions but need to refrain for a first post. I am looking forward to
a long and meaningful driving relationship with my old Audi. I have had several cars over the
years and this is the first Euro but I have to say I am completely devoted to it now.
