I'm going to change out the oil sending unit tomorrow and hope that this fixes it, but since it happened because I was doing something stupid I am a bit worried. I know the gauges in these cars suck. Long story short, I felt the need to beat a yellow light turning red by throwing it down in second, flooring it to get through the light... I know.... Stupid, but I only drive this car maybe 2 days a week so why not have a little fun(or stupid). I probably took it up to about 4,000 RPM then put it in neutral once I knew I wasn't going to stop at the light. Made the stop at the gas station. Started it back up and noticed the needle one bar above the red line. Before this at idle it would be in the middle or a little lower. Before this when accelerating it would read above the middle, now it's below the middle. While driving the 15 minute drive home it seemed to be reading lower and lower at both driving and at idle. I checked the oil level and it was still good. Like I said I'm going to start with the oil sending unit and hope this fixes it, but I'm afraid it's not with the bad luck I've had with this car. If this does fix it, I know the next thing will be new gauges but I already have a laundry list of things that I need to do before I think about buying aftermarket gauges.
