If you’re referring to your NC, then that gauge is set by the instrumeant cluster based on an oil pressure switch signal and engine speed and temperature readings from the PCM.

Yours sounds like a returnless system, pressure regulator in the tank. Is it an NB F/L?

I’ve had possibly the same symptoms before, it turned out to be a failing wheel speed sensor for the DSC. In the end it put in a fault code for it. Is it a really light hesitation? Like you’ve lifted the throttle ever so slightly?

I put it down to the DSC “detecting” some wheel slip due to the faulty sensor and closing the throttle slightly to reduce engine torque and stop the “detected” slip.

Even though the DSC off light is on, I don’t think that the system is completely dormant.

Sensor 2 is post cat. It’s accessible from under the car, the plug is on the transmission tunnel under the carpet behind the passenger seat.

Phillips and JIS look pretty much identical at a quick glance. I use a Phillips screwdriver with no problems. A JIS screw can have has little dimple on the head to identify it, but not always. I compared the fit once of a Snap-On Phillips and Snap-On JIS screwdriver and struggled to see a difference really.

The trick, I find, to getting the screws out is to press your whole body weight onto the tool that you're using as you're turning it, this helps to prevent it from riding up and out of the screw. I use a big screwdriver, with a hex bolster at the top of the shaft and a spanner on the bolster.

It really is as simple as removing the plastic base cover and unscrewing the two #3 cross head screws, they may be tight so use a good fitting tool. Once fitted loosely the mirrors can easily be manipulated in to the correct position for final tightening of the screws.

Rusted fuel filter/pipes or leaking rubber hoses leading to and from the fuel filter maybe.
