How can I check oil pressure guage is there a sensor or vacuume line that could of worked loose where would it be located at


Location of oil pressure sender unit depends on what engine you have. There should be one wire going to sender, and if it has come off, gauge will read zero. 4.0 inline 6 has sender low on passenger side of engine, above the starter.

Why does oil pressure light comes back on after 30 sec


Never, ever disconnect an oil sensor. It does not lie. You have no oil pressure because your oil pump is not working or no oil in the engine.

Oil gauge is stuck all the on high, after starting the engine


Sound like a posible bad oil pressure sending unit . It is normal for pressure to be above normal just after starting . At a cold idle , the oil viscosity is higher than it would be if it were warm . If the guage is reading really high for longer than normal ( after 1 minute of cold idle ) then I suggest having the sending unit checked .A sevice center can check the sending unit on or off the vehicle as well as checking pressure with an actual guage for more accurate readings .

Oil pressure guage has pegged on the high side. Would this be caused by a faulty Oil pressure sending unit? Engine is not overheating and seems to be running fine.


Bad sender is most likely, but could also be stuck oil pressure relief valve. You need to be sure, or the pump could break and destroy the engine.
Try a cheap mechanical gauge instead, screwed into the sender hole. If pressure good there, then check the sender with ohmmeter. If 0 or infinite ohms, replace sender. If not, see if gauge drops to 0 when sender disconnected. If not, then gauge bad.

Where is the oil level sensor located? oil guage wiggles between 40 & 60 at idle and stays on 60 on the road.


That's not oil level you see on the gauge -- that is oil pressure in pounds per square inch (PSI). It is normal for the pressure to fluctuate when the engine RPM goes down. If it stays on 60 PSI on the road, you are very lucky -- that is excellent oil pressure!

Oil pressure guage sticks


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.
