Oil pressure too hight


If its a wiring or sensor issue you'll have a code up or the check engine light will be on. I'd start by getting an oil change and a good oil filter (not a Fram). Thinner oil should help lower the pressure. You should be alright if your pressure is under 60.

1995 Jaguar XJ6 oil pressure gauge


This is OK. Oil pressure is always higher when the engine is cold.

As an engine accumulates miles the pressure will start to drop due to bearing clearances increasing.

If this just started to happen you may want to replace the oil filter and or oil pressure sending unit.

Oil plug came out didn't realize no oil pressure t


the oil is there to cool and lubricate the crank ( bottom end) and the cam shaft and valves (top end) the most likely out come is that you have (cooked) the engine, check to see if when you try to start dose the engine turn? if it dose then it could be the oil temp switch will need to be replaced. if the engine DOSENT turn then you have most probably welded the pistons to the block. seized the crank shaft or warped the head (head gasket) i hope this helps

My v.w glof glow light dose not come on?


Most likely ignition switch has gone bad.  Don't need to worry about oil pressure light IF the motor is not running, but IF it IS running, shut down motor immediately until oil pressure can be verified with an external gauge.
good luck
