Default Oil light came on!!!!

Goldie is sick. Today, her oil light came on. I thought it was the water light because the gauge looked like a lil faucet with a drip of water. However, when I took her to the dealer I was told that it's the oil light and advised not to drive her until she has been thoroughly diagnosed on Monday! # My poor lil golden baby!

First thing to do is actually check to see if it has oil in it.
The oil pressure sensor could be faulty in your PT.

The dealer did that already and the oil is good. She didn't save a code so they're going to have to do a thorough check on Monday.

The sensor is famous for being bad and giving a false reading. Wouldn't be to worried except for how they milk it for all it's worth.

Have them put a mechanical gauge on it and write down the oil pressure at cold idle and hot idle. You want to know the condition of the engine before you dump $ into it. It's probably the sensor or its wires.

I haave a turbo which was in the way a little, I did mine on my back in the rain and it took me about 15 mins. 1 1/16" socket i believe. Not hard at all.
Reason for doing it in the rain was I had to borrow the socket and I didn't want to keep it more then a day.
