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?

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

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!
