The best way to check it is too hook up an external gauge where the sending unit is too see if it's the engine oil pump, or the sending unit itself. But, sending units are the most common issue.

Replace your vehicle speed sensor, or verify that it's connected. This would cause erratic shifting as well. See link below, just copy and paste.

98 ford ranger, cranks, but does not start sometimes


With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?

1998 ford ranger runs cool has new radiator gage show engine cooling at high idle


This isn't unusual for an engine that is tight compression-wise but higher mileage. If friction is low, and the cooling system good, this reduces the amount of heat resulting.
I use a molybdenum-based oil additive and it brings friction down (and mileage up) enough so that a car I owned some years ago used to drop substantially (dropping 2/3 of the uncalibrated gauge) rolling down a long slope during the commute to work. This happened after the engine passed through 150,000 miles.

Need to change oil pump on a 89 for ranger


You should not rely on the dash gage for this decision... If you have verified poor pressure, only then should consider changing it. Remember oil can loose pressure at many places internally and replacing it may not accomplish your goal.

Now to change the oil pump without engine removal is quite a task, take off the oil pan and the sump filter, then with lots of light, you can reach up in there with a long allen socket or 12pt 7/16 size?, and pull it out.... not sure if the distributor needs to come out ...remove it only if necessary. be careful not to turn over the crank if you remove the distributor because it is driven by the camshaft as I recall and this would obviously get change your spark timing set up.
.

good luck
