    Angry Check Gages Light...

    My light is coming on and the oil pressure goes past 60 when I'm driving and it's alittle right between 40 & 60 at idle. Should I be concerned?

    Thats very good oil pressure, so don't be concerned about that. The check gauges light is also a low fuel light.

    Many parts stores have OBD2 scanners and they'll help you for free. So I'd go there if you arent low on fuel and the light is still on.

    the check guages light doesn't throw codes that can be scanned, it's just a reference that something you can monitor in the guage cluster is outside preferable parameters.

    Are you sure the oil pressure being high is the only problem? Do you change your filter every time you change your oil? Do you ever have junk in the oil when you change it that could be clogging oil passages and inhibiting flow?

    Anything that goes in the red zone on the gauges such as:

    Too low or too high amp from the alternator
    Low fuel
    Engine temp overheating
    Oil pressure too low or maxed out.
