Ok. New problem.
Just replased a vaccume hose and was driving.
Oil pressure was on 3 bars then dropped to 0. Pulled over. Checked engine bay. Belts are still on.
Drove off and it jumped to full then 0 then full and stayed there.
Everytime I turn the key to accesories it goes straight to full.
What's up with it?
Did I hit a sensor or something?

the sensor is screwed into the block between the oil filter and the passenger side engine mount..

Ok mad. My engine is still really loud and vibrates a bit when your off the gas slowing down. I think the exhaust is loose between the cat and exhaist pipe. Could this cause engine vibration?
