Been bouncing around craigslist for a bit, initially with "NO OIL PRESSURE" and later with just a single line saying disclaimer oil pressure reads zero at idle. Now no mention of it in the latest ad. Most likely just a failed sender or rusted sender connector but you should check if buying it.

If I didn't already buy my beater for this winter I'd be down there looking at it and figure if it's not making noise and shows some pressure increase with RPM and/or monkeying with the connector under the intake manifold, just drive it home.

I don't like slammed Miatas but this one works for some reason.

I texted the guy to get info, I am less than an hour away and had interest. Figured I would help the hive and pass my findings along...

Thanks Ross
