You should trust your oil gage. The oil pump is bad. You had better change it before you seize your motor.

Locate the oil pressure sending unit and get a pressure test for yourself. If it is okay, replace oil pressure sending unit. If the pressure is 0. Replace the oil pump. Probably not 0 because engine would seize.

sending unit may be bad. If engine is not knocking or tapping when pressure reads 0 likely that's the case.

did you by chance had the oil filter changed because there is a antidrain back valve in the filter,also if the filter is plugging up it will bypass to line pressure.causing lower oil pressure.try the filter first then have oil pressure checked when cold and again when hot.

Oil Pressure Drops While Driving


your oil pump is either weak or there is sludge i9n the oil pan. my adives is to have the oil pan dropped . chances are sludge is the culprit. as the oil get's warm the pressure should only drop slightly but pressure is generally dictated by engine rpm. pumps are gear driven so if it was a bad pump your oil pressure would start out very low at start up.
