Sweet as, the only real problem with the ghia at the moment is this oil pressure business. Once this has been fixed then i need to get the whining noise looked at. Which i still think it is the torque converter. After that the cars going to be a solid driver.

Okay well the oil pressure problem is fixed! The car seems to have v/g pressure, i have taken the car in to my usual mechanic and hes going to work on it in a couple of weeks. He thinks it is an overly tight tensioner chain..The head gasket was done on it ages ago thou..so who knows. But he had the stethescope thingy on the front and back of the engine and seems to think thats what it might be.

The engine still runs very soothly thou. So hopefully thiers not much damage thier but will see in a bit.

I will keep ya all posted! Thanks for the help thou up till now! :)

Over tight chain is an easy fix.
That can be done in 2 hours easy.
