Oil pressure gage allways says high

You more than likely have a bad oil sending unit.The best way to find out is to remove the unit and check the oil press.with a pressure gauge but if you don`t have one then you can just replace it.Not knowing what engine you have the 3.1 or the 3.8 the sending unit is located by the oil filter or oil filter adapter.Hope this helps.Good luck.
