So 3 bar = 43.5 PSI
I tested the oil pressure unit and its connecting wire and i don't get the readings described in the shop manual attached by Myarmar above. So that leaves me to believe either it's a harness problem or gauge... worst case a true oil pressure issue (hope not!) i decided to take the car to the shop (tow it) first thing Monday as I am starting to get into areas above and beyond my mechanics abilities. Thanks guys.
