Re: Oil Pressure Gauge ?
The so-called oil pressure gauge is the one in the middle at the top, between the speedo and the tachometer. It would help if it was labelled pressure; it could easily be read as oil temperature. The coolant temperature gauge, another vanishing item, is lower right. My current car, from 2005, has a proper coolant temperature gauge. A couple of years ago I spotted odd behaviour, such as getting lower when cruising downhill, and self-diagnosed a thermostat stuck in the open position. Changed within a week and soon running at usual fuel economy. My wife's slightly newer car has no coolant temperature gauge nor a warning light for when the engine is cold. How one would detect a thermostat stuck open, a very common failure, I don't know. Progress!
