1. Ford uses a binary switch for the oil pressure - it's either below normal (no pressure) or normal. Either you have a defective oil pressure sending unit or your oil pressure is fluctuating which is dangerous. You need to have a mechanic check the actual oil pressure while it's fluctuating to see if it's the pressure itself or the sending unit.
2. Time for a new clutch or clutch related parts.

"2. My clutch has this horrible chatter noise. It goes away if the hold the clutch in a little. What is it and how can I make it stop?"
Describe the noise. Does it sound like a cricket chirping?
If so, it's your throw out bearing and not the rest of the clutch. It's a fairly common problem with the SN95 clutches, and more annoying than dangerous.

am planning to buy a 1978 Mustang hatchback. any suggestions if its worth buying a machine that old, the car is running. Can I add more power to it is it worth restoring it? What else can i do with a 78?

A Mustang II, eh? Well, you'll probably be able to get a really good deal on it...
They're not very beloved by the Mustang crowd, even now. Best bet is if it's a King Cobra Model.
I think in '75, Ford started putting the 302 V8 in it (with a hp output somewhere around 130 I think). So theoretically, you could probably put a later version 5.0 in it for some decent performance...
I kinda like the Mustang II styling...a lot better looking to me than the bloated wedge-shape of the previous model.

I need your help. I a picture of the emissions components of a 1995 Ford Mustang GT. If you have a 1995 Ford GT, I would appreciate a pic of your emissions components (hood raised).
#2011 of 2125 '96 Mustang Audio Question
Apr 19, 2007 (3:08 pm)
I have a 1996 GT convertible. I'm about to take the dashboard apart to repaint some of the plastic panels that have started to show wear. Does anyone know if the '96 audio systems have an internal anti-theft security code, and how would I go about getting the code? Dealer?
#2012 of 2125 2000 Mustang - New owner - headlight question
Apr 28, 2007 (5:00 pm)
I am a first time Mustang owner. The car was the treasured "ride" of my father, who passed away. My promise is to keep it in good shape and of course I will enjoy doing so! I noticed the headlights appear to be frosted OR perhaps they got water inside them and are fogged up. It was a Florida car and sat awhile during Dad's last year, when he wasn't feeling his best, so anything could have happened. I've had this car only four days and hope to learn more from these forums and the web. My mechanic says it's in great shape mechanically!

What you've got is that the plastic headlight covers get clouded over by exposure to UV rays - which of course would be a bigger problem with a Florida-based car. Do an Google search on "Sanding plastic headlights" - (here's an example - http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-8011.html ). Check out a couple of different options, and you may want to try some of the less extreme options first. I was able to get my '96 GT convertible's lenses back pretty easily by just using Meguiar's Plastix Plastic polish. However, on my son's 1997 Subaru (all of which seem to have cloudy headlights), the 3 grits od sandpaper method explained on the attached link was necessary - but it did work. One recommendation - go easy and take your time on each step. Good Luck.

WOW, I went to the Meguiars forum and it was quite informative. THANKS! Our local Auto Zone sells their products. We'll go slow and see what it takes to polish up the headlights on the Mustang.
