This is probably an oil pressure sensor problem. Randomly going from 0 to over 130 is means the sensor is putting out out of range signals. Mine would even read --- at times. I told the mechanic to not spend any time troubleshooting just change the sensor. $121 including parts, labor and tax. The gage should read about 70 psi plus or minus several psi, and move up a PSI or two as you rev up the engine. It took him about 10 minutes to change it, once he got the part. There would have been a diagnostic charge of about $50, had I not been sure.

That's not oil level you see on the gauge -- that is oil pressure in pounds per square inch (PSI). It is normal for the pressure to fluctuate when the engine RPM goes down. If it stays on 60 PSI on the road, you are very lucky -- that is excellent oil pressure!
