Congratulations - way to take the initiative! It might be worthwhile to put a real oil pressure gauge in there to see what real operating oil pressure is. The "oil pressure light" trips on only about 5 psi of pressure - not enough to safely operate an engine for very long at more than idle.
Hi there. What you’ve just explained is the biggest reason why it’s always best to get a second opinion. Plus, a major reason why many car owners are seeing the value of having a mobile mechanic come to their location and inspect the symptoms you’re having as opposed to recommending the most expensive repair possible. Good work on your end.
