Jorg, welcome to the forum.

Not sure about your 1.6 engine because we only have the 2.4 gas engine here in the U.S. but if you have an oil pressure sensor somewhere on your engine, you can take it out and replace it with a gauge to check your oil pressure to see if it's the correct pressure. Ours is locatedin the back of the engine.

Did you replace the oil pressure sending unit with one from the dealer? I have had to replace mine in a 2003 GT twice so far, and if you bought it from an autoparts store it may not work right. I also wrapped the sensor in a foil insulator as it was close to the exhaust manifold heat. Many PT owners have had problems with aftermarket sensors.
