easiest is the guage ground signal wire to block guage should move in one direction and un plug it should read other direction

oil sending unit is bad,they get cloged with old dry oil,if you have not replaced it,is time to.

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!
