Re: Two problems

--------------------------- Begin X.400 Bodypart 1 --------------------------
  On the cut-out problem: perhaps your boost is running just a tad high and
  the brain is shutting down the fool pump as it should as a protection
  mechanism? Check the boost with an accurate, calibrated mechanical guage.

OK, gang.  Two knotty ones:

(ur-quattro, 1988, 2.2 MB engine)

a) The oil pressure warning light flashes during cruising.  It seems to
need ca. 30 minutes at 95-100mph - then the oil warning light flashes for
about half a second, flimmers for another fraction of a second, and then
behaves itself. It happens, on average, about once every 500 miles.  There
doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the oil pressure - the sender unit
is only a year old.  The electrics seem to be OK.  The audible warning
doesn't sound.

b) At full boost in third gear, the engine sometimes cuts out.  It picks up
again when the throttle is closed.

Ideas and suggestions for either?
