    Hey guys just was curious as to how yalls stock oil pressure gauge acted. Mine tends to fluctuate at times it does always stay in the normal range on the gauge. However, sometime it will be on A on normal and sometimes it may just be barely between the N and the O on normal Any reason for concern? Someone told me those gauges were sporadic alot of times and someone else said possibly my oil sending unit might be going bad. Just curious if anyone had similar experiences?

    Well for starters it's not a gauge in the sense you are thinking. The sender is a 6 psi pressure switch so if the pressure is more than 6 psi the circuit is closed and the needle moves into the "NORMAL" range. Any variation is usually voltage related caused by increased electrical loads or poor ground connections.
