Question about 1986 Nissan Maxima
My oil gauge reads zero-zip-nada. Yet the oil is full and motor runs fine with no knocking. I know theres oil presure. But haven't been able to locate the sending unit. My question is; where is it?
One of two places either on the head where the oil feed comes up for the cams or in the main oil gallery on the block but some vehicles do have them on the oil filter head ,its so long since i done one i just cannot remember and what i have worked on were all diesels

I wouldn't worry about it unless you see this happening regularly over a period of time. If you got a bad batch of gas, or something along those lines, it could've caused it to happen. If it hasn't happened again, and you have no check-engine light and your fuel economy is where it usually is, I'd chalk it up to a random occurrence and not worry about it. If it starts happening more, try and note as many things as you can about the situation (ie, how long it sat, how much gas in the tank, is the engine warm or cold at startup, any recent maintenance or repairs, etc) - all of that can help a diagnosis.

well the temperature control gage is connected to the engine block and consists of 1 wire for the reading of the motor heat either the sensor is going bad or you need to check your coolant levels in the radiator make sure the engine is cool before opening the thermostat cap to the radiator so not to get burnt ...also make sure the wire itself is not grounding out on the engine block to give the gage to give such a readout look to the engine and usually on the drivers side lower the plug wires you should see a plug with a wire coming from it ensure the wire is not rubbing on anything .

Go to the dealer with the vin number and they can make one there and then. They just look up vin number in a book and get a key code.
