76 280 Low oil pressure when idling
Can anyone shoot some advice my way on this most recent issue? About a month back my car started showing signs of Temp rising while sitting at lights or drive thru's. The gauge will go almost to the 3rd line (next line being HOT)... Once I accelerate, the temp goes back to normal..Immediately!!!
Now, while I am sitting at lights it seems like I am idling very rough, almost as if she wants to stall,,,but she hasn't ...YET. during this my oil gauge will read near 15 which is low...As soon as I accelerate or if I put the car in neutral, the gauge reads pretty much full pressure 45...
any ideas on what this could be? I was running low on oil and put a 5-30 weight oil..From what I have been reading, these cars need a 20-50 for this Cali weather..any suggestions are appreciated...
