There may be an excess of sludge blocking the oil pump strainer. This same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. I bought a salvaged 95 Dakota that had been in a flood. The seller may have ran an oil flushing product in the engine which frees oil resides in the motor. However, the product states that the oil pan and pump screen may need to be removed and cleaned in high mileage motors. At the time my motor only had @ 40K on it. I also used the flush trying to clean the motor but it got worse.
Bottom line drop oil pan and clean the pump screen.
Remember, some oils have parifin (wax) in them so use a wire brush and parts cleaner on the screen.
Your problem could also be an engine idle speed problem or electrical so tune the engine and check engine codes before dropping the pan. But do it soon because if it is the screen then it could become completely clogged at any time.

1999 dodge ram 1500 oil pressure droped and wont go over 30mph

That really sounds bad, most of the time the drop in oil pressure is because the pickup screen that is down in the oil pan is clogged, it has a very small opening that gets clogged with hard deposits it must be cleaned or replaced, wont go over 30 is another thing, but the oil pressure must be fixed first

Oil pressure drops to zero after a few mins of running.

Assuming that you have checked the oil pressure sending unit and it is working properly. I would check the oil pickup inside the oil sump. It sits very close to the bottom. The way the oil drain bung is made (the treads go up into the sump) doesn't allow all of the oil to drain out when changing the oil. So, any gunk that builds up in the bottom, like metal shavings, etc doesn't drain out when changing the oil. It can be picked up by the oil pickup and that is what can cause it to loose oil pressure. The filter should catch the gunk before it makes it to the engine. But if the oil filter becomes plugged up, it will bypass the filter and it will travel to the engine.

Dodge 2.7 I'm losing oil pressure after car warms up. When starting pressure is reading on manual gauge 60 PSI. Once it warms up it drops to Zero. New oil pump, oil pan and pickup tube clean. Any...

The first stop is to measure the pressure with an external gauge. if the readings are the same, surgery is needed, I would look at the oil pressure relief valve for foreign particles.

It takes resistance to make pressure, and your decsription does not sound good. If the pressure is actually dropping, and you find no issues with the oil pump and pick up, you need to measure bearing clearances... Essentially, everywhere oil is pumped needs to be inspected...

Oil presser gage works when it want to.

Chances are, when the oil pressure gauge is acting up, it is the oil pressure switch. When this goes, it can cause the gauge to work incorrectly and the oil lamp to illuminate on the dash. It could also be the oil pump, but I would check the switch out beforehand as it is most likely the cause and will save you the trouble of getting a new pump.

Removing the oil pan from a 1994 vw jetta

you have to remove the oil pan without the gasket because the gasket is attached to your oil pan baffle and that can't be removed until you unbolt your oil pump. i pried the **** out of mine until i realized the gasket couldn't come with it. no haynes manual will explain it as simple as it could be, i hate those books
