Often a sign of an oil pump going bad. Many years ago I had the same symptom on a 63 Dart with a slant six. I blocked the engine, removed the mounts and replaced the oil pump, which is on the outside of a slant six. Problem disappeared.

: I have many problems with my 74 2002A, many of them probably rather serious. But I have no money and it is my only car, so I have jut been putting them off. My problem is this:

: I have gas leaking into my crankcase. One mechanic told me it could be a gasket, seal, etc. from my fuel pump, so I disconnected that and am running on nothing but an electric fuel pump. Well, the only really bad result i ever get is after 4-6 weeks after changing my oil, the oil light would come on when the car was hot and in drive (AUTOMATIC) and i was at a stop light waiting for the light. I could put the car in neutral or park and the engine would jump 300 revs or so and the light would go out. Usually, I would just change the oil as it was too watered down with gasoline. I changed the oil on Saturday, but this morning driving to work I still had the oil light come on when the car was hot when i was at a stop light with the car in drive.

: Any cheap, free, easy suggestions. (sorry so long of a Q)
