You got it Larry. It's the high sender (white one?).
BTDT. They are cheap. Really easy to replace. The
"high" one kicks in at 2k rpm or something near there.
It needs 1. who knows BAR pressure. Your oil
pressure is fine if you've got oil in the engine. As
he stated, this is NOT a problem with these engines.
You can pull 100 psi of oil pressure when cold with
15w50 in winter. With 250k on the engine. AMHIK.
