Alright, my Oil Pressure Gauge shows constant oil pressure in between the two middle marks on the gauge. It doesn't go down while idling, and it doesn't go up when revving high.

Should this be something I need to worry about? It's showing pressure, and the car runs just fine, but I'm just a little sketched that it's not fluctuating under high/low RPM's.

::EDIT:: I should've specified, I've got a 97 1.8.

its a dummy sensor, it goes to one spot and stays there if you have any oil pressure

if that needle EVER moves, you HAVE problems

Correct me if im wrong but wasn't it the 90-95 models that had a functional oil pressure gauge?

94 and older had a real gauge. Newer models got the "on-off" gauge.

^ Gotcha, that's good to know. I wonder why they switched from the accurate gauges to the gauge every other car has?

The TrackDog is the same one Moss sells......It's still not the real thing, you use the same gauge, but adjust the needle.

Do it right and find a sending unit and gauge off of an earlier model.

That's what I was thinking about doing, retrofitting one from an earlier model.
