tight turn

Okay..
so today as i was coming home, i took a 90 degree turn at about 35mph i came in from 3rd gear and heel toed down to 2nd.
during the turn, it felt like my car stalled for a second and i saw the oil light just flash... a couple seconds later i felt/heard some rattling and it came back to life
..
.
.
has anyone ever had this happen to them?...

Re: tight turn

Maybe you took the turn too hard or one of your wires are loose, so when you turned it moved slightly..

Re: tight turn

That`s strange why would an oil light come up? Maybe bad shift. Has it only happened once?

Re: tight turn

I'm thinking maybe if it was a very hard turn, all the oil went to on side of the pan and lost the pickup for a second.
