Question type: Maintenance & Repair

gage will go off scale zero while under normal driving conditions. it will re-set properly when turning ignition off and re-starting car. what should I trouble shoot first? is it the gauge or the oil pressure sending unit?

I thought about that right away. but I was confused when the gauge aoperated nominally on restart. I will definately look into the pressure sending unit. Thank You!
