Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
After the engine is running for about 30 seconds the oil pressure gauge will start reading pressure. I want to know if something could be wrong with the oil sending unit or could the screen on the oil pump be clogged? If so is there any way that it can be cleaned without taking the oil pan off?
I had the same problem. I suspected the sender unit -- since it was only $12 and easy to replace thought it worth a shot -- it worked -- problem solved and gauge works normally now.

U need to have a manual pressure guage hooked up to verify that the oil pressure is within specs and comes up to spec within a few seconds, don't fool around here u could ruin the engine if the oil pump has a problem, if all checks ok replace the sender, if that doesn't do it the guage needle is sticking, I have seen both at the Ford dealer I work at.
