You have to remove the windshield and outer fairing to get the rear of the gauge. Give the electrical connection to the gauge about a half turn and remove the connection from the gauge. Replace the bulb, re-install the electrical connection, fairing and windshield, and your done!

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.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

My 2001 Ford Ranger Edge oil pressure gauge has been jumping around all over the place. Took it in today and they said pump needs replacing... and that they had to remove the engine to do so at the tune of...


Your oil pressure gauge works with the oil pressure sensor, which is screwed into the block, to transmit a reading. A faulty oil pressure sensor can cause the reading on the gauge to be erratic. You may have a bad oil pressure sensor. You should also inspect the wires going to the sender to make sure they are not loose, corroded, or shorted. If a new sending unit doesn't work, you can check the oil pressure with a manual pressure gauge. Testing for oil pressure involves fitting the oil pressure gauge with an adapter. Then you will need to determine if you have a gauge problem or an actual oil pressure problem.

Oil pressure low at idle


Are you sure the gauge is reading correct? You also didn't mention how many miles the vehicle has. If it's less than 150k I would doubt the motor it worn out, (excessive bearing clearance would cause poor oil pressure even with high volume pump). Chevy's have a lot of issues in the dash with the motors that make the individual gauges work. I would check the oil pressure with a manual gauge. If you don't have the skills to do this yourself, a qualified shop wouldn't charge much to do it. If you find that the gauge is incorrect, there is a guy in MN that rebuilds the instrument cluster for $65 with all new stepper motors (the motors that work the gauges) and replacement of all the bulbs, plus gives it a lifetime guarantee. www.speedometerrepairguy.com.

I've had sender replace and all points between there and oil gauge verified OK and all the stepper motors on instrument cluster replaced but still get fluctuating oil pressure needle and warning s


If you check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge and the pressure is steady, the problem would be in the gauge on the dash if you have replaced the sending unit and there are no problems with the circuit.
The mechanical gauge could verify a problem with the actual pressure in the engine.

Oil pressure gauge reads 80 psi with engine off and pegs running


That is probably a defective oil pressure gauge or a broken oil pressure sender, it reads 80 psi just because that is the maximum value allowed.

Pressure can be verified by reading it with a gauge tool.
If you really have pressure over 70 psi when engine is running then start replacing the oil filter, and check that the oil lines from pump are not obstructed, if there is nothing in there then replace oil pump.

If instead the gauge reads 80 with engine off, that is a defective pressure gauge.

Fluctuation on the oil pressure gauge reading


The oil pressure sending unit is a sensor with an internal diaphragm, if the internal diaphragm is damaged , or the line to the diaphragm is blocked you can get this kind of fluctuation on the oil pressure gauge.

The oil pressure value must be read by installing a mechanical gauge near to the oil pressure switch and checking the pressure.

If pressure is ok, replace the sending unit. If there is a real pressure drop, check the oil pump.

If you still get fluctualtion after replacing the oil pressure sending unit, replace the oil pressure gauge.

Oil pressure switch again


after about a month this new switch shat its self and spewed oil every wherefortunately it was in my drive way and not on a runthis switch was then replaced with another from Stein Dinse and now this one appears to be on the way out ie slow oil leak from switch, I was wondering if anyone has had experiance with these switches failing and to warn others of these switches, it could result in an engine seizure or was dropping your bike from oil on the back wheel,I got completely fed up with the oil pressure switches. Wash the bike and they go out...ride in a hard rain and they stop working, maybe they'll start spewing oil all over the place. Good grief, I was changing them out more frequently than my tail light bulb. ,,,
