    Winstar?? RV? Try RV place or try another place that isnt as cheap. Sometimes, problems arent that easily to either duplicate or pinpoint. This job isnt as easy as plugging a scan tool in & it tell you what to replace kind of job unlike some people seems to think.

    Oil light may be an internal engine issue. Can be a ground issue. Sounds like it could be a IPC issue.

    Mechanics no, Guys with tool boxes do not a mechanic make. Verification of the actual oil pressure with a stand alone gauge would be a good step or even reading the resistance of the sending unit with a VOM would be suitable. A check of the gauge cluster, they do have problems at times, would also be a step in the right direction. What combination of codes did they come up with?

    Oil light - always on. Check Engine light - always off, even at startup. Replaced computer 3 times; it made no difference at all. Replaced oil sending unit. Didn't fix the problem. Codes were ambiguous, but suggested a computer problem. The car runs fine, but won't pass inspection! Help!

    Computer replaced 3 times...you have to be joking, and 3 mechanics, come on now.

    Take the car to one real mechanic.
