I have a very similar problem with my 2001 300 M.I put in a new aftermarket pressure gauge in where the oil pressure sending unit was, and when I would start the car, the pressure would increase to 60psi. However, when giving the car a little gas, the pressure would decrease all the way down to about 2psi. I've never heard of the oil pumps going bad in these cars..but what else could it be? Thanks for any help!!

I would verify that you are getting an accurate reading before going any further. Some transducers can be inaccurate right from box. If you are in fact getting correct readings repost and we can evaluate it then.
