Default Up and Down Oil Gauges

My oil gauge will be fine but when I hit the brakes it shoots all the way down to the red mark. When I hit the gas it goes back up......??????????????

You guys need to get that oil pressure checked. The red mark is too low.

Same issues... I replaced the oil sending unit and got some of the preassure back thru that. I got a little bit more by topping off the oil juat a hair high. The rest I don't worry about since it stays out of the red. Normal driving I sta in that 50-60 range so I'm not worrying about it. lol
