Driving to work yesterday morning I got a P2092 code about a mile from home. I got to a parking lot and cleared it and when merging onto the highway the car sputtered like it misfired and the CEL came back. I babied it the rest of drive to work. The oil pressure on my aftermarket gauge read 10-15 psi lower than usual.
Once I got to work, I cleared the code. Driving home from work, the car's idle suffered and it almost stalled in traffic. No CEL for the remaining drive. The oil pressure gauge was back to its normal ~80-85 at around 3k RPM. The oil level is perfect, I changed the oil two weeks ago.
I did some reading on the OCV and was able to make the code to come back by unplugging the OCV and getting the RPMs over 3k.
I ohmed the sensor and got a steady reading of 9.2 ohms. If it was bad, wouldn't the ohms give it away?
Before I drop $90 on a new OCV, I want some more experienced feedback.
