  8. 89 BII 2.9L Oil Pressure Drop

    After driving my BII for roughly 20 mins or so the oil pressure drops to where the engine will cut out at stop lights (almost like it is stalling). This problem is avoided by putting the deuce into neutral (automatic). I just changed the oil in this thing, and had this issue prior to my last...
