    Since bringing my 162 back from the dead ive put about 2000 miles on it, and i'm starting to notice some issues. When i stop on an uphill incline, the revs will go down do 500 and the whole car will shake. After I've driven around 5 miles the oil pressure will start dropping past the "accepted range" whenever it idles and ive seen all the way down to a 35 or 40 degree angle on the needle, but it goes back up as soon as i start accelerating. Also the temp gauge isnt working but it seems to be kind of hot

    the oil pressure sounds fine to me. I've logged as low as 12psi at idle. the gauge will barely read that. it's normal.
    fix your temp gauge issue asap. blown hg are common on those. if you have a temp issue that can also be your idle issue.
