No other indications there is an issue. No idiot lights, no strange sounds with the motor, no loss of power...seems to be the gauge

    Unhook oil pressure switch (sending unit) to see if the gauge reads 0 with key on. If so replace the pressure switch.

    You need to use the factory recommended oil viscosity.
