The oil pressure switch is a common problem on this vehical. Replace it.
It's located right by the oil filter. you will have to reach it from underneath the truck

While sitting in park, my 1999 ford explorer with the 5.0 v8 has good oil pressure on the gauge. After driving for awhile the presure starts to flux really bad. The presure remains good while driving at...

maybe it's ur gauge! you can get it pressure tested at ur local auto shop for pretty cheap i think! Sounds to me like its nothing major as long as you know you got oil pressure! ( check temps while driving) BUT i wouldn't worry to much about it as oil pressure tends to flux as car is driving/ getting warm and oil gets lighter. Worst case scenario is a leak in the timing cover gasket and whoever replaced it should cover it. Do you see an residual oil near it? or on the ground when its wet and you pull out of your parking space? Hope this helps!

Oil shoots out bottom only after starting car. The plug has already been tightened.

Hi,I am Ron,It really sounds like a oil pressure switch that has gone a leaking.This can be purchased at your local auto parts store and is fairly easy to replace.The part is not to costly.This is what tells you that the oil presure is not good in the engine.It could be a oil light or a oil gauge,either one will leak,or in this case shoot out.If I can help,let me know.>>>
