Default Good news and bad news. No wait, just bad. Now some good

Good news is, vlad's motor is in dopples car, and runs.


Bad news, we discovered rice while bleeding the clutch.

It's certainly not for brake clearance...

And it's spread to the back wheels too...

I have bigger problems right now.

Drove the car home, fixed the exhaust rattle, drained/filled oil and replaced the filter...now I have no oil pressure, but the filter is full....FML.

I feel as though this thread needs to go to the engine section for trouble shooting at this point, I can only imagine how gut wrenching this must be for Mike.

What oil pressure sender do you have? A "real" or a "dummy" gauge? I know oem your car would have the dummy, but it's a nice upgrade to have the real sensor.

Also, i'm assuming the car was running when you saw there was no oil pressure? What did the engine sound like, excessively noisy? If there was really no pressure you would probably be able to hear it.

The oil filter is right next to the oil pressure sensor IIRC...

Lars had similar problem on exactly the same kind of engine:
https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...-49760/page24/

dunno if same or not, but worth reading about it.

also its really weird to me how it was fine then suddenly lost all oil pressure after the oil change. that's just really really not likely. if an oil pump or gears go, I'd think it would be during driving or boost or something. not working 1 second, turn off, and suddenly no pressure. that's just............weird

Something is clogged. Or stuck open.

Nope. He said he started it and it was super loud after the oil change, and it was barely squeezing oil out of the filter hole when he yanked it again. that = no oil pressure.

It might be stuck relief valve on the oil pump. Or something coulda got in there and clogged it. Or maybe the oem oil pump actually did take a dump, but I highly doubt that. A pump doesn't blow up with the engine off lol

My sender was bad along with a break in the wire continuity. Check it all before you jump to oil pump conclusions.

He also has an oil filter relocation kit, so he wasn't down by that gauge wire. Hopefully he can rule that out with a separate gauge soon.

Its starting to sound more and more like the problem Lars had.

His was also a clog related to a sandwitch plate IIRC
