Hey just thought of another possibilty has any work been done recently? make sure lines are not crossed. once I had done a frame off on an 84' sturgis shovelhead and when I took it to my guru to get the last dial in done (i still havent mastered timing adjustments on the twin cam and i don't like getting a face full of oil anyway) I had forgotten to hook up an oil line to the rocker boxes and got to hear about it for weeks about how lucky I was that "bean" noticed it before it burned up the motor but hey what was I payin him for anyway but check everything and don't ferget. what did you do to it just before it started gettin funky. is the filter in upside down? you know simple things first. eliminate the impossible and everything else no matter how improbable is one of your possibilities! have fun and let me know

Not getting oil pressure when turned on runs rough, oil pressure gauge is pegged high on 99Bonneville SE


I suspect the gauge/sender/ or wiring is bad. Does the gauge peg with the key on, but engine not running? An engine wont run long(maybe 10 min with no oil pressure). suspect gauge has nothing to do with a rough running.

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

Oil pressure gauge pegs at 80 PSI as soon as you turn the key on. I have replaced the gauge and confirmed the sending unit is working properly. Any ideas on where to look next?


Sounds like a grounded wire. Most senders change resistance to the ground circuit of the gauge. If it pegs there is no resistance to ground and probably a shorted wire.

Oil pressure gauge has pegged tothe high side


Probably pressure sending gauge. Can't recall its exact location gotta be in block between ( or next to oil filter) and cam shaft. Unplug it put your pressure tester in its place and check your pressure.If a-ok either clean out the unit with compressed air or replace it . Replacement is the better option. Also check the wiring to the gauge it might be gounded. If pressure is still high when your checking it (which I really doubt) .....keep me posted I'll walk you threw it.

When my truck gets real hot the oil preasure guage starts bouncing when truck idles as soon as truck is put into park or is reved up a bit it stops bouncing


You may have a Faulty Oil Pressure Sender.
Here are some reason why your guage is bouncing:
  • Corrosion or faulty electrical connections
  • If the oil pressure gauge is pegged low after the engine is running, or is pegged high after the engine is running, or if there is intermittent illumination of an oil pressure indicator light, the sender could be faulty
You can find the oil sensor on the left hand side near the Oil Filter, as long as you don't hear your lifters ticking and making lots of noise. it's not your oil pump failing. 
Good luck and hope this helps
