Post moved to it'* own thread.

Chances are it'* a bad oil sender or a problem with the gauge. Check the connections for corrosion;

Also, what year car do you have? Please add your cars year and trim level to your sig.

The oil pressure sending unit is on top of the oil filter housing.

The sender is on the block in back I believe. The one on the front of the pan is the oil level.
