SOURCE: Oil pressure suddenly dropped to zero.

Hello, let's see what you need.
Yes, the pump can go out that fast.
Do not start your engine. Go out and check the oil. If you have plenty of oil you will need to tow it to a shop. If your out of oil check the the drain plug on the oil pan and check the oil filter.

I have a 96 dodge Dakota 2.4 L , 4 cylinder. I installed 3 oil sensor switches, thinking they could be bad. I have no reading on oil gage in cab. I grounded lead to sensor, gage working. On the other

Try using a cheap mechanical oil gauge to make sure you do have oil pressure. If you do, something is preventing the senders from making ground to the engine. Are you using tape or sealer on sender threads? DON"T. the threads are the ground for the sender.

I had my oil pressure sensor break on my f150 and replaced it but now my oil pressure gage in the cab shows i have pressure until i start it then it drops below empty and say i need oil when i have it...

The oil pressure gauge tells you how much oil pressure the engine has, not how much oil is in the sump.
Sounds like the new oil pressure sensor is the wrong one, or there is a problem with the gauge on the dash. There are two different sensors, one for a gauge and one for a warning light.

Oil pressure gage drops down to zero when i go to stop

Might be a bad Oil pressure sensor or a weak oil pump and when the car idles the pump even if it spins but the power is low but after you push the Gas then the RPMS goes up and the pump spins fast the pressure gets higher. Good luck

If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

My oil pressure gauge is floating left to right....

I would replace the sending unit. It is an easy and cheap replacement compared to solving low oil pressure issues. If you really had low oil pressure than you would have heard noises like lifters clicking, rod knocks, etc.

I have a 1996 dodge ram 2500, 5.2L, the oil light comes on and the oil gauge fluxuates, but there is plenty of oil in it. There in no apparent issues with the oil pump (no grinding/squeeling) I am...

Just to add, hope this helps with sensor location. The spec I saw was 30--80 psi oil pressure at 3000 rpms. In the old days they used to say for generic spec, 10 psi for every 1000 rpms. Always use the proper spec. You might be able to use analog pressure gage to screw in to replace sending unit to double check oil pressure. Just my opinion.

2004 GMC Sierra High Oil Pressure

if it is electrical oil pressure sensor I would start there. The best way to see if you have a major problem is to use a mechanical oil pressure tester. Take off the oil pressure sensor and put the mechanical tester on. The tester should come with a Gage. If it comes within your trucks oil pressure range than all is fine and replace the sending unit and see if that don't help your problem.If the tester runs high then the oil pump is bad or your cam-bearings could be the problem. But with cam-bearings you would usually get a low reading.
