When going around corners at around 40mph, the oil light on the dash cluster blinks on quickly... Oil pressure is at the "3" on the gauge, is there anything wrong, or is this just normal as the oil shifts around during a turn? Oh yeah, the car has 45,000 on it, and its had a recent oil change.<p>Thanks!

Check the oil level in the engine. If it's at the right level, it's probably an electrical problem, you can get it fixed if you want, but nothing critical.

It might be gunk on the level sender. The sender mounts on the left side of the oil pan and costs about $50, IIRC. You could try using synthetic oil at the next change and see if that clears it up, or replace the sender, or live with it.<br> <br> BTW, you have a 45,000 mile 1987 300D?! Holy cow! Please drop me an email if you ever want to sell it!<br> <br> :)<br> <br> <br> Dave M.<br> Sacramento, CA<br> 1987 300D - 226kmi<br> 1983 240D - 201kmi
