Question about 1985 Chevrolet Camaro
When the engine is first started the Oil pressure guage 'Red lines' on the high end. As the engine warms up and the oil begins to thin the pressure goes down to about 30. After about 45 minutes of driving as I'm sitting and idling, it reads 0, and the Check Guages light comes on. It will basically stay there or just barely come out of the 0 mark. It only reads high (Normal) at the start.
Hi! The problem you are outlining is very similar to the Rover V8 (Buick engine). We Brit's are used to the low oil pressure when warm. I presume a complete oil change engine flushed with new replacement filter has been carried out? Maybe a top quality synthetic oil with additive may help. You may take it a little further and replace the oil pump with an after market performance up rated one. If you really are worried about low oil pressure damage whilst in low rev's try Molybnenum Disulphide an oil additive which really reduces friction metal to metal wear particulary in the situation you are describing.
That's the best I can suggest at this moment.
Good Luck! and Happy New Year!
