I just picked up my Spyder on Monday and Monday night, I was driving around and noticed at stoplights that my oil pressure gauge was unusually "active" It was bouncing around the left (low) end of the gauge and everytime it bounced further left, the oil pressure gauge light would come on. At times, it was completely left.

The car felt completely fine at all times, and when giving it gas, it went back to the right as it should've.

Eventually, this went away and at idle, would settle around 20 psi or so (like 1/4 if it were a gas gauge).

I called Wide World of Cars and they suggested I call Roadside. I told them the car was driving fine and the issue was intermittent and I needed transportation at that time. So, I didn't send the car to them and it has seemed fine ever since except for an episode here or there.

I've put 600 plus miles on the car since Monday afternoon and the problem seems largely gone.

But anyway, just curious if anyone has seen such a thing. It is a gauge to worry about for sure, but I'm wondering if it is the gauge more than anything else.

I also was going to check the oil but can't find the dipstick :)...I still need to look at the manual.

i got it fixed a couple months ago. It turned out to be a bad ground wire. Perfect ever since.

After owning Alfas, Ferraris, and now a Maserati, I have come to realize that Italian gauges are "special". You would think that this variability would go away with the global economy/suppliers, but....this issue remains uniquely Italian.
