  1. Mine looks like that before it is up to temperature. Cold oil will idle around 4.5 to 5 bar and until the engine is fully warm it wil read anywhere from 2 to 4 bar. Note that it takes a while for the oil to heat up. You car may show 180F on the coolant but the oil will not be fully hot at that point. Thanks for the answer, this was what I was worried about. Perhaps it's been too long since I really drove the 911 that I was use to seeing oil pressure not that high.
  2. I understand that it isnt fully warmed up when I took this picture but this still seems way to high for just idle.Any revs will quickly send it to 5. As for the TSB, I am not exactly sure where to find it.
  3. Well I(not I exactly) removed some of the oil, one canisters worth. It no longer burns oil on start up and during operation. I even took it for a 40~ mile drive and everything seems normal. Fast forward to today I go to drive the thing and I notice that now it will peg the oil pressure way high. On start up and near idle (no more than 1.5k RPM) it will stay at 5. At 3kish RPMs with the engine warm it will hit the 5 mark and idle will be 3-3.5. Is this normal? I do not want to take the car near the high RPMs with the car doing this.
  4. Thanks guys, unless this is stupid simple I am going to have to let one of my more mechanically adept friends do this.
  5. Cold oil. the car has been off for a few days now. 5W-40 I believe the shop used-Torco.
  6. I took all the relevant pictures that I thought of. Kind of hard to make out the dipstick. I put an arrow where the oil looks like it stops.
  7. Well I rolled the car to the end of the my driveway which is about as level as it will be without starting it. It is a very slight incline with the nose pointed up. I am aware that this is not ideal but it is the best i can do without starting it. According to the dipstick which I am having a heck of a time reading the car is at the max level without going over. The confusing part is that little I am guessing plug at the top just above the meter, that seems to get covered in oil but the actual meter itself the oil level rises to just before the max indicator. The onboard computer shows the lev
  8. I really appreciate the responses. Checking the oil is only a matter of finding a level surface which my driveway is not. I can't imagine driving it a very short distance would damage it, something like around the block or even jus shuffling cars and finding room in the garage? I was reading some of the other threads and they used a device to pump it out of the fill tube? Is that an option with these cars?
  9. Due to my slightly paranoid nature of my car now I may have screwed something up. I have an 02 C2 Tip. Long story short I have a freshly rebuilt engine with new everything. I have a history with the car after the rebuild due to smoking out the back. The initial problem quoted was a vacuum imbalance which they fixed. This solved it for a while. After a while it did it again and they ended up replacing the AOS which is where i am now with new everything. After driving my car around for a few days I checked my oil level with the digital gauge, the engine was hot and checked a few minutes after I
