SOURCE: oil pressure gauge reads past 80
now unless there is a very loud knocking of the motor which would mean that the engine's top end was not getting any oil I would say that your oil guage is sprung and needs replacing. a high pressure rating would indicate a restriction in the oil flow pasdt the sending unit or a plugged oil filter. if the filter were plugged you would know it because your enging would run tight in no time at all. replace the guage itself... please rate this........thanks

First have your oil level checked and make sure that it is at the right level. If not that's your problem, if your level is good you may have a bad oil pressure switch. This can be checked by using a oil pressure guage. If switch is bad replace and solve the problem. However if your vehicle has alot of wear and tear on he engine and you were using 20w-50 oil and it was replaced with 5w-30 that oil may be too "light" for the vehicle and you would get a low oil pressure reading. Good Luck

Hi, this is a faulty oil pump and , it should be replaced asap. make sure the mechanic replaces the oil screen as well.
You can test the pressure gauge and True oil pressure by using the guide below.
Testing the Oil Pressure Gauge
* Test the gauge by grounding the wire that leads to the sending unit on the block.
* When the wire is grounded with the key switch on, the gauge should show maximum oil pressure, or the light should go on.
* If either happens, the gauge and wiring are good and the sending unit is at fault.
Testing Oil Pressure
Pressure can be tested by temporarily installing an oil pressure gauge in place of the sending unit. Before testing, look up the oil pressure specifications for your vehicle in the appropriate service manual.
* Bring the engine up to operating temperature.
* Now shut the engine off.
* Locate the oil pressure sending unit; usually it is on the lower side of the engine block.
* disconnect the wire from the sending unit and use an Open Ended Wrench to remove the sender. using pliers can damage the unit.
* Tighten the oil pressure test gauge into the hole in the block where the sender was removed.
* Check the engine's oil level and fill, if required.
Be extremely careful when working near a running engine. Always wear safety goggles or glasses with side shields when working around moving machinery and be sure that your clothing is not loose.
* Now turn the engine on and check the oil pressure on the gauge.
o Watch as the engine warms to note any excessive drops due to temperature.
o Make sure the engine speed is set to specifications for testing pressure.
o if necessary, us a Tachometer and adjust the engine idle speed.
* Record the measured oil pressure, then turn off the engine.
* Compare the test results with the manufacturer's specifications.
o If the oil pressure is within specifications, this shows that the oil pressure sending unit may not be working correctly.
o In many cases, replacing the oil sending unit will correct the problem.
* After the test is complete, reinstall the oil pressure sending unit, start the engine, and confirm there are no leaks.

If you don't hear any ticking or knocking while the pressure gauge drops, the problem is probably a failing "oil pressure sensor". If you do hear a ticking or knocking, the problem is probably a failing "oil pump".

Most likely it's the oil sending sensor, located beside the oil filter. You can change it, just be sure to have old newspaper or rags laying around the area where you will work, because a little oil will be lost. The part isn't expensive, for mine on a Ford Expedition was around $35 and took 5 minutes to change. Just un-plug the connector going to the sensor, and a larger wrench will be needed, large (7/8, 15/16) somewhere in that range of size.
