Not very likely. You should have the oil pump output checked by a shop before using the car for any length of time. If the oil pump is not working properly, and you drive the vehicle much, you will be looking at a major overhaul or a complete engine replacement.

What does it mean when your oil pressure gauge reads 80?

It does NOT automatically mean you have 80# of pressure! NEVER trust your gauges as being the 'last word'. They're notoriously cranky on some older XJ's. (Usually due to gauge cluster connection issues or harness oxidation.) Chances are that you have a defective oil pressure sending unit. Rarely the gauge goes bad. Remove the wire on the sending unit and see if that changes the reading. If it does, replace the sending unit. If not, I'd still replace the sending unit. After you confirm the oil pressure sending unit is good, check the oil pressure relief valve. It may be stuck closed resulting in high pressure reading.

What do you do if you turn the key and the oil pressure warning light doesnt light up?

First step, confirm you have oil pressure with a Gauge (you can skip this step if you are 100% sure you have pressure). If you have oil pressure, Check the Sending Unit. (Somewhere on the engine, 2 wires going to it probably the same place you stuck the gauge) Check the sending unit by checking for continuity (Ohm) using a Multimeter. If you start the engine and the Resistance stays the same (OL or out of limits, no continuity) you have a bad sending unit, if the sending unit tests good (Low resistance), the light may be burnt out.

Fuel gauge always showing a quarter tank on a 70 Monte Carlo?

Sounds like the sending unit in the tank is stuck. It works kind of like the float in your toilet. There is a piece that floats on the top of the fuel and it is attached to a rod that goes to your sending unit. The higher the float, the more gas is shown on the gauge due to the position signal the sending unit is sending out to the fuel gauge. If it is stuck, it probably is best to have it replaced.

How do you close a stuck open dining table?

They can get stuck when you apply more pressure to one side than the other side in trying to close gap. Suggestion, take a tape measure and see which side is too far in compared to the other side, pull that side out some till both table edges are an even distance apart. Now close using pressure on both sides evenly and slowly, if it stops release pressure and straighten it again, then try closing again with even (side to side pressure).
