you replaced the oil sending unit,is that what you mean by pressure switch.OK I own 3 T-Bird Super Coupe,s.if your motor has NO ticking.knocking and dont use oil,dont pay any attention to the gadge,they are known as dummy gadges after a while they give a false reading.

when the oil is cold it will have pressure,as it warms up it drops,did you change the oil sending unit,still the gadges dont work right.nothing to worrie about as long as their is no noise in motor.this is common on electric gadges.
