Hello,
I have a 2 ltire '79 beta coupe, which has been running fine for a few weeks, but I have noticed that the oil pressure is dropping when the car is warm. When I first start the car the oil pressure gauge rises to the centre, but the warmer the car gets the lower the needle gets. I am worried that the oil will stop pumping and the engine will seize.
Does anyone know what the problem is? Does the oil pump need replacing? Anyone got one?
Cheers
Rob

Normal behaviour. As the engine warms the oil gets thinner and the pressure reduces. If its partiucularly low make sure the oil level is correct and that the correct type of oil is being used.
