no oil light

its irritating to change the oil and not have a guage or light to tell you you still have oil pressure.

Can always add an aftermarket gauge.
It's a good thing to monitor anyways, especially as the miles add up.

theres really no good place to mount a guage since the g6 pillar pods are no longer available.i would love to at least have a light but finding a hole to put the sender in is always a problem.

One option is an Oil Filter Sandwich Plate like this:

Allows an easy way to install a couple taps into the oil system.
Some people put a T fitting where the stock oil pressure switch is, but I'm not sure where that would be located, if there's even a provision for one.

it turns out the car does have an oil light,im just not sure it works.every other car ive had if you turn on the ignition the oil light comes on until theres oil pressure such as the engines running.this car it comes on to test the bulb and then goes off until you start the engine.then the oil light and abs system lights come back on for a few seconds.i don't trust this.
