Starting issue and flutering oil PSI

hmmm.,

Saturday got jammed in traffic (though car was not excessivly hot)
got to a destination and picked up my date, only for car to not start


EMBARRASING - especially as I was suited and booted in my 40's
electric blue lindy suite

DME relay's (all relays actually) was stonking hot.

immoby fob no bleeping, when eventually bleeped and alarm off only
got a click, as if immoby not off

had this before, so left for about 20mins and started, frozen peas on
top of the immoby helped

is it best to bypass this or look around for cause.

my alarm also bypasses 2 circuits so is CAT1

was thinking maybe of putting a fan under the seat to allow cool air
to flow (did this before but since removed it)
also CD changer is behind seat so maybe airflow was blocked



also noticed my oil gauge is flickering when hot or cold i.e 5psi or
3psi notches - before it only did this when hot, not cold

when it flickers I get a rough idle at the same time

full front end done (belts rolars etc), plugs,dizzy cap and rotar arm

any ideas before I xpost to other forums

ta

Take the time to re-write your post. I think I understand it, but umm... it shouldn't be a Haikou.

EMBARRASING - especially as I was suited and booted in my 40's electric blue lindy suite.

The DME relay ( and all the relays) where stonking hot.

The immob. fob when put into the connector (Porsche System one) was not bleeping, when eventually it did bleep all I got was a click, as if the immoby was still on

had this happen to me before, then the inside temp. was very hot, the unit is under the seat and buried under the carpet, so feel that it got fried, then when it happend I left it for 30 mins and it started fine.

(after the last episode I ripped out the carpet from over the unit to keep it a bit more cool !

OK so this time I left it for about 20mins with the help of a bag of frozen peas on it and it started

So question, is it best to bypass this immbo. unit or look around for the cause.

My alarm also bypasses 2 circuits (so is CAT1) I just wanted the Porsche one for belt and braces approach

I was thinking maybe of putting a fan under the seat to allow cool air
to flow over the unit, (did this before but since removed it)
also CD changer is behind seat so maybe airflow was blocked

It's a form of Japanese poetry that reads alot like your post. And, besides, it's spelled haiku.
