  1. Oil pressure issue

    I would start by getting a cheapo mechanical oil pressure gauge and set it somewhere you can watch while driving to see exactly what’s going on. Your low pressure light will come on it it falls under 5psi so until that happens I’d say it’s safe to run the engine to diagnose. My cars have all had excellent oil pressure but a rule of thumb is atleast 10psi per 1000 rpm (30psi@3000rpm). Idle the lowest you’d want to see is 7psi. A healthy engine you’ll see about 15psi at idle. I would save the oil filter on there now and cut it open to look for debris between the flaps in the filter. Also drain the oil into a clear tub and using a bright flashlight look for debris usually aluminum clunks would be a sign of bearing failure. Best of luck.

  9. Bought my 1st TC..

    Welcome! I also have a Cabernet/Ginger. I’m sure you’ll do some reading and come across some great info on preserving a tc on here. The best initial investment I think you can make is getting some leatherique and treating the seats before you start driving it. That old leathers probably very dirty and stiff. It works excellent and you’ll be glad you starting using it right away. Another thing I’d suggest is flushing the brakes and get some new dot3 in there. Mine had similar paint fade. This color didnt hold up well. In my opinion the Tc’s a car worth investing into especially for the price you paid. Good luck and can’t wait to see the progress! Andrew
