SOURCE: High oil pressure reading

Hi, this is a oil pressure sensor malfunction. the gauge is getting a distorted reading from the sensor. replacing the gauge will fix this issue. also, check the fuse box for blown fuses.

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Sierra High Oil Pressure

if it is electrical oil pressure sensor I would start there. The best way to see if you have a major problem is to use a mechanical oil pressure tester. Take off the oil pressure sensor and put the mechanical tester on. The tester should come with a Gage. If it comes within your trucks oil pressure range than all is fine and replace the sending unit and see if that don't help your problem.If the tester runs high then the oil pump is bad or your cam-bearings could be the problem. But with cam-bearings you would usually get a low reading.

the solutionit is the oil pump sensor (if gage goes up and down and gage light blinks).

I have a 2004 Nissan Titan with 98,500. Yesterday my oil pressure gauge started staying on high all the time while the truck is on. When i turn it off then the gauge drops all the way.

Replace oil pressure sending unit. Sender is located on the engine block close to the oil filter. Usually has one wire connected to it.

My 2005 nissan titan oil pressure gauge just jumped to high. I turned the motor off and turned the key on without starting the motor and it went to normal. Soon as I starred the motor, it jumped right back...

When you say it was "normal" with the engine off and the key on, do you mean normal as 40-50 psi, or normal, as 0 psi since the engine was off and there should be no oil pressure? This is important because if you are reading 40-50 psi with the engine off, it is not surprising that the gauge goes "too high" once you start the engine. If the gauge is at 40-50 psi with the engine off and the key on, then there is a problem with the gauge or the sensor. It is not an overpressure issue. As long as the engine seems to be running normally otherwise and is not clacking internally or other such things that would indicate oil pressure issues, I would feel safe using the vehicle until I could have the oil pressure circuit diagnosed and repaired.

My oil pressure just jumped to the max reading on the gauge. can this hurt my motor if it is really high oil pressure.

Does the oil pressure go to max or some where in between when you turn on the key without starting? This is what happen to me it was the oil sensor down by the oil filter. The cost for the sensor is about $100.00.

2006 Nissan Titan high oil pressure

How high are we talking? You have verified this is the correct pressure with a mechanical test gauge? If not do that first, if the pressure is normal then replace the sending unit first.

Oil pressure drops when idling and when stopping. is it the oil pump? 2004 Nissan Titan 5.6L

This is natural and normal. As long as you have oil pressure and the oil, when checked on level ground, is filled to proper level you should be ok. Try doing an oil change and see if that affects the problem.

I put a new radaitor and thermosta in my 2004

Check the coolant level one more time, sounds like it could still be low.
