Thanks for keeping up with me G. I guess the combination of these symptoms aren't a common problem.
I spent some quality time with the wife last night, so I didn't get to look at it. I'll do so later this week and let you know off line (as well as here) what I find out.
But I'm still trying to figure out why the sudden and drastic change in oil pressure though. It's never done this before. Oh well, guess I'll find out soon enough.
