oil pressure

31 January 2002
Raleigh, NC
i know this topic has been addressed several times on these boards, however, since i just experienced a overheating situation, i felt compelled to ask my question. the pressure seems to be a bit lower than it did prior to my overheat. it used to hover around 1-2 at idle and i beliieve a little over the mid point during normal driving conditions. now it drops to 0 or close to at idle and around 4 during acceleration (not wot).
is this anything i should be concerned about?
Always change your oil after an overheating incident.

The values are low. Suggest you get an outboard gauge and measure the oil pressure. Do not drive the car until you do this.
