1995 Mercedes-Benz S420 Q&A

1995 Mercedes-Benz S420 Question: Oil Pressure Gauge

Where should the oil pressure gauge be? I have up to number 3, but for the last couple of days, it's been lower and lower and is now almost at number 1? -
Answer 1
Have a shop check this right away as maybe your oil pump is failing and it could cause major damage to the engine if the pump fails -

Thanks I will definately take your advice! I'm wondering though since I put up this question the oil on my 99 Honda Accord has been dissapearing to say the least. I had an oil change done a while back and suddenly I had the oil light went on and it was bone dry. I put 5qt of oil and it did the same thing after say 2 months. It doesn't have an oil leak or looks like it's burning oil. Do you think it would still be the oil pump? -
