Many take a second to build up the pressure. more so in cold weather.

SOURCE: 94 f350 7.3l turbo diesel looses oil pressure as rpm increase

Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

SOURCE: gas gauge not operational .....low

The fuel level sensor is bad, you can't buy it by itself. it is part of the sending unit. costly part, I would keep check on milage and wait for the fuel pump to go out then have it all replaced.because the fuel pump is part of the unit too.

Hyundai 2003 Santa Fe 2.7V6 - engine turns over fine, doesn't seem to be getting fuel immediately. Eventually it starts after 5 or 6 seconds of turning over. Suspect fuel filter or fuel pump?

Initially I would agree fuel pressure had dropped off after shut down. This fuel filter is a sock screen attached to the fuel inlet tube of the fuel pump and is located inside the fuel tank with the fuel pump. This screen is rarely the cause. You'll need a fuel pump pressure gauge to verify the low fuel pressure at start up. Caution, sometimes this low pressure isn't a faulty pump, sometimes it's a poor wiring connection to the pump motor. An analog amp meter can verify if there is fluctuation/ing current flow to the fuel pump. A fluctuating current flow could mean poor connections, or could mean the pump has/is gone/going bad.

Iam wanting to purchase a 2005 santa fe 2.7motor.the vehicle i road tested the oil light stays on

either low oil pressure or oil pressure switch faulty.Get it tested before purchasing as low oil pressure would have caused some wear and tear in the engine.If just a faulty switch then should'nt be a big deal.Get a compression test done also.

My husband was driving my 1003 Hyundai Santa Fe. He stopped the engine to get gas and when he went to start it up, the oil light came on the car was making a terrible knocking noise

have you had oil changed recently? if so look to see if oil pan plug is in tact. if so, check oil on dipstick. the problem is the car has no oil pressure. if the oil level is good the oil pump is bad. good luck!!

2006 Dodge Durango Oil light comes on

It might be faulty oil pressure sensor or bad oil pump, but might be adressed to recent oil change. Sometimes oil get viscouse in winter and cause oil light to come on. For winter the recommended one is 5W-30
Oil light should come on for less then a second during starting the car. If it comes longer or when you push the brake it might be the sign of bad oil (sometimes), faulty oil pressure sensor (mosty), bad oil pump (often) or internal engine problem (very rare).
Good Luck
