What would cause temperature gauge bouncing ?


Sounds like the sending unit has an intermittent short to ground. Unhook the the wire from the sending unit, and see if the needle stops jumping around. If it quits jumping around, replace the sending unit. If it still jumps around, you have a bare spot somewhere on the wire and it is hitting ground which will cause the needle to jump. Cut out the bad part of the wire and splice in a new section. That should fix it.

I had an awful Ford that did that. The fuel gauge stayed up showing the crooks how much diesel was in the tank and the temp and oil gauge stayed on the last reading but returned to zero when the ignition was switched on when cold.

I;ve lost oil pressure the needle stay's down while driving, is the oil pump bad or going bad? is it located in the oil pan or the front of the 4.6L MOTOR?


If the needle is staying down and the motor is not knocking then the gauge is probably bad. If you run the engine with no oil pressure, then it will not last long. It will start knocking and ruin the engine. But yes the oil pump in in the oil pan. There is also a oil pressure sending unit that could be bad. It is located on the back of the engine.

Oil gage needle bouncing up and down


There is a sending unit right by oil filtersometimes it get clogged . However, this is a 16 year old car have them check out the oil pump pressure with a gauge.
Oil pump on this car is a pain in the @##%^ to do but its better than a new engine.

1992 mazda navajo oil gauge bounces


Could be a faulty oil pressure sender switch ( quite a common fault ) . Remove it and fit a mechanical gauge to test.
Much less likely ( if the test shows fluctuating pressure) the oil pressure bypass valve may be sticking. Make sure your oil is nice and clean, contaminants can sludge up the oilways. The bypass valve is usually in or near the oil pump on most cars.
My pick would be the switch.
Happy hunting!!

Gauge problems with fuel and oil


It is just as likely that the fuel level sending unit in the tank is bad as it is that the fuel guage in the dash is bad. The guage is MUCH easier and cheaper to change; try that first.
