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.

Nut shells and other debris will interfer when clutch pedal is depressed. All that **** falls in between the pressure plate and slave cylinder. It's hard to clean out without removing transmission. Good Luck
