Who was it that was selling the 88 oil sender with a cable that was already made up for the 87 GT ? It was much lower cost than anyone else.
I saw it some where, but my eyeballs are sore searching for it. I thought I had it saved, but guess not.
Anyone remember ?

Here's a "how to", if you're interested.

Problem is most old sockets have problems too. Not just old senders. Means they can bite you in the long run.
Plugs are loose or rotted from rust are common issues. Fiero V6 OP sockets and senders get water, road salt, etc, thru engine vents.
Iffy connections can cause problems when OP sender is running the fuel pump.

splicing isn't hard. See my Cave, Oil Sensor
Use "water proof" crimps w/ heat-shrink & glue keeps out water.

Hi ogre,
Electrical is not a problem for me, I was just wondering because I saw it somewhere.
I have a new pressure sensor on right now, still acting up.
So, I'm going to bypass everything today and test the pressure directly.

Thanks

Can't I just disconnect the existing pressure sensor and install a cheap local gauge and +12V ?

Is there some issue doing this on a Fiero that I do not know of?

Don't use electric if you have or suspect power/ground problems.
Use any mechanical gauge, 80-100psi minimum full scale.

Fiero FP relay works then system won't care remove the OP sender for testing.

I used a mechanical gauge. Ran up to temp...worked very well.
So it has to be the sensor or the gauge.
I'll check the gauge sometime this week. As for that new 87 sensor, junk that thing and install an 88

I just wanted to make sure it was not a oil pump issue.
