If you look down under the car on the bottomof the motor near the oil pan, you will see your oil sending unit mounte somewhere on the motor nearby... it kinda has the shape of a spark plug and it has a place on top for a wire to attach... If there is no wire on it, then the wire should be hanging loose somewhere close to it and just was not reattached when the new motor was put in. Depending on what kind of swap you did, the new one may have not had the same electrical connection and so they didnt reattach it or maybe they just forgot. Just reattach it and you should be back in business. If you have to get another connection, they are readily available at any autoparts store.

How to chck a fuel pump


check 12V at pump terminal when on/cranking

hear/feel pump operation (if external to tank)

if low pressure (carby) disconnect fuel line and observe flow. If high pressure (FI) connect fuel pressure guage and observe pressure. Check fuel filter while doing all this. Filters are the source of many problems that start people messing with fuel pumps.

How do I check oil pressure with a guage


Remove the oil pressure switch. It is typically located near the oil filter. Install the appropriate fitting from the oil pressure gauge kit. Install the gauge. Start the vehicle.

Oil pressure light blinks


It would usually indicate that the motor is in pretty poor condition. Your oil pressure is just barely adequate. I would suggest hooking an oil pressure guage up to the engine, and checking to see if that is the case, or if it's the sending unit, or some other problem. If the pressure is weak, just drive it till it drops, or replace the engine.

How to you check to see if the oil pressure guage is bad or if there's a pressure problem itself?


Connect test leads to the guage and apply 12 volts, if the guage activates upward this works, if it's the oil preaaure in regards to the oil pump, you need to hook up a oil pressure guage.

Oil pressure light came on, what does this mean?


Usally low oil level, low oil pressure, or possibly a defective sending unit. You may want to hook up an oil pressure "wet" gauge to check the actual oil pressure.

I have a 1989 VW Cabrio 1.8L What kind of oil should I use living in VA and what kind of plugs are recommended. My oil light starts blinking after 10 minutes of driving when the rpm is under 1500 and...


ok any 10w30 oil should be fine I like ac delco plugs as for the oil light is it full? have you changed the oil filter? might have a clog if the car has not run for a whuile it might be full of gunk/residue from in the motor
usually this is a problem that happens at an idle and goes away when the motor is revved i know you say after 10 min under 1500 rpm but if it happens at higher rpm's you might be doing serious damage to the motor by running it and 1500 is kinda high for it to just be worn main bearings (one supply of oil preasure) the oil pump might be out the motor could be clogged small pathways for the oil return could be gunked up not alowing oil to return to the oilpan/oilpump dont think vacuum is the cause but is the guages even working right? you can get a cluster (3 guages oil temp voltages) fairly cheap 20$ or so try installing these even if just to make sure the guages in it are good I keep one in my toolbox for this hook it up check the readings see if they are safe hook the old stuff back up and put the guages back for next time

1989 dodge ram 150 4/w drive pickup has no oil pressure showing on the gage, driving or sitting still.


You need to have a oil pressure guage hooked up to see if you have a bad guage, sending unit to the guage, or if your oil pressure is actually low. Any garage should be able to do this, if you can't get one.
