Puddy and 1993 SLE.. most likely yours are caused by a little extra resistance somewhere in the sensor, connector, wiring or cluster.

Consistency is the key for both of you. As long as your cars have consistently been this way...that is what matters.

I however would get a mechanical gauge on there and check, I would want to know what my pressure really was.

Your oil pressure isn't anything I'd worry about right away, if at all. It comes up right away off idle.

You have two coolant sensors in the lower intake manifold. One feeds the PCM, the other fees the gauge. They're inexpensive.

There must be a run of bizzaro sensors every once in a while. My gauge has done the exact same thing for the 130k mi I have had the car. The only time it stayed around the 40 marker and below, I was standing around going "Where the hill is my coolant going? There isn't any antifreeze on the ground." That was 30k ago. After the intake was replaced, the gauge went back to doing its sameold sameold.
