About 2 months ago, I had a valve clearance problem fixed by a British car shop. Now I have developed a new problem, low oil pressure, after driving less than 100 miles after getting the car back from the shop. After the driving the car for about 10 minutes, the oil pressure drops from 50 psi to 15-20 psi and temp gauge starts moving from middle to far right. Luckily I was a 100 yards from my house and I made it home. I called the shop and talked to the owner and he said may be worn bearings or oil pump problem and also suggested I change the oil since it had been a year. It just cost me significant dollars to solve the valve clearances. Anyone have any thoughts on anything I can check on my own without going back to the shop.
