Probably clogged ports... there is a tsb that says not to use any aftermarket oil filters on the 5.4l engine... peices of the gasket on aftermarket filters break away and clog passages in the engine. always use motorcraft filters for that engine...

Nissan titan high oil pressure

I have a Nissan titan 2006, I noticed that oil pressure gauge is right in the middle but once you start running the gauge goes all the way up high. What is wrong?

2000 Ford F-150. The oil temp warning light came on and the oil pressure gauge dropped to zero. While accelerating, the pressure gauge goes back to normal and the warning light goes out. No drivability...

Make sure the oil level is correct. If the engine bearings are getting worn, the oil pump is worn or it's screen plugged, that can cause low-RPM weak oil pressure. Try running with 'high mileage' oil at your next oil change and always replace the filter. At some point, you may need to consider overhauling or replacing the engine. Good luck!

this is almost certainly a oil pressure gauge sending unit problem, replace it and recheck.

High temp oil light coming on and off, oil pressure gauge reading

Add the quart of oil. Oil also acts as a coolant.

Heater gauge goes past the middle part and many times fluctuates...

Check for low coolant, with an intake gasket leaking. Most of these I see have an intake gasket leaking coolant which when the coolant gets low, will run hotter and fluctuate the temp gauge.

Over heat

Take it in for diagnosis.. .seems to me you don't know anything about vehicle maintenance... perhaps you need to replace the thermostat and flush the cooling system... not a bad idea.

Oil gauge reading on my dash

Any where from a quarter to half way is fine. After this the oil presser is getting to high. be sure you run 10-30 in the winter and do a oil change in spring time to 10-40 . oil will thin in hot temp. thus using a thicker oil like 10-40 in the summer will help keep oil presser down .

Oil gauge high

The pressure will depend on the temp. of the engine, and the RPM's. Just make sure you have the correct amount of oil in your engine. I wouldn't worry about the pressure until it gets too low, then your almost out of oil. Mine currently stays above mid-point as well.
