Hi there,
taking out the fuel pump relay will not release pressure, it's just an electrical connection. Opening the fuel filler cap will.

Hi there,
I did the oil pan gasket and my torque wrench hadn't been calibrated for a long time. So I "overtorqued" the 8 ftlbs or 11 NM. You then also bend the oil pan edge.

Hi there,
I would suspect the fuel pump relay if you were driving and it just cuts out.

Hi there,
I believe the reservoir has a front and a rear section, the latter probably ran dry.
Take another look. It is easier with a bleeder, though.
Good luck

Thanks, guys,
I am surprised that the oil pressure is so low as per manual, particularly as it compares to my 420, which is a V8 too, just a bit smaller and 11 years older.
