This could be the distributor pole piece, you will probably have to have someone read the computer for ignition codes to solve it. if you are by an AAmco trans shop they will read the codes for free.

I have a 2003 ford ranger the oil pressure guage goes to hald way then 0 back to half way truck runs great with no problems


Check the plug first. Look at the tabs in the plugs. They should be touching from one side to the other. See a gap fix or replace the plug. If it looks good, Replace the oil sending unit.

Why does my oil gauge vibrate when at a stop after driving freeway speeds, 2002 ford Ranger?


Factory gauges (especially Fords) are not known for being terribly accurate or reliable. As long as the gauge is pointed in the "normal" range, I wouldn't be too concerned.
If you want to pursue it, remove the oil pressure sending unit and perform an oil pressure test with a mechanical gauge. If the mechanical gauge fluctuates the same way, suspect a worn or failing oil pump. If the gauge is stable, I would suspect a faulty oil pressure sending unit.
If the truck has high miles, consider moving up to higher viscosity oil or adding an oil stabilizer. If could just be that the oil is breaking down when it's hot and the engine can hold consistent pressure with the thinning oil.

I have a 2005 F150 5.4 litre. My oil pressure guage says the pressure is fine. Quite often, my truck simply just dies and the warning info. comes on saying I have low oil pressure ?? Could this be caused...


Hello, The oil pressure sender is a possibility. Testing the old one wouldn't be worth it as these parts are inexpensive. You may want to contact the Dealer with your Vin# about "Cam Phasers". It is also possible the "idle motor" ISO is letting the RPM drop too low which affects the oil pressure.

Back to the "Cam Phasers", for a few years on DOHC, double cam engines, as these parts wore there were problems with timing, noise and idle. These parts worked with oil flow. Since you are getting a low oil flow and a dying engine it would be good to have this part checked. It is important to use the correct oil and filter to maintain the function of the "Cam Phasers". There is an extended warranty for this problem which I believe runs 7 years.

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?


  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.

Could be low oil level, a bad sending unit, or actually low oil pressure due to a worn oil pump or worn bearings.

The gauge issue is most likely a defective oil sending unit( or pressure ) switch.. No biggy.. They usually run less than 20.00 and labor of approx. 30 min.. Your vibration issue could be a number of things.. You'll need a Tech to test drive it.. could be the brakes rotors.. but not sure..

Oil pressure


the oil pump pickup could have come off the oil pump, but u could fell it inside the pan through the drain plug, that is possible, but not very likely, try installing an aftermarket high volume oil pump, most are adjustable for either high volume or high press, you want volume.
