It means that your engine is loosing oil pressure, it is a concern to be worried about. Check your engine oil level, the engine might need oil.

Oil pressure drops to 0 then goes back up


Definitely needs resolving.
Since both light and guage drop occur, problem would appear to be with oil pump or oil delivery rather than simply a bad guage.
You could check to see if there is a common sender that may be defective.
It is also possible that the oil pump pickup screen has an obstruction.
I'd be looking at the recent history.
Has ANYTHING been done to the vehicle that might lead to this problem
Make, model, milage, maintenance history..........
All will help to track down the problem.

Hi I have a very dependable tuck..a 96 toyota t100 2wd with the v6 engine.. however I'm very worried when I see my oil pressure gauge drop very low at idle. But it raises to about halfway reading whith...


You might have. But it could be the sending unit, or the guage. You could take it somewhere and get a guage hooked directly to it if it's a real concern. On the other hand, it could be just fine. And if it's not knocking or burning oil, I wouldn't worry about it.
