Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My oil pressure guage is tapped out past 80 and
stays there . It happened after transmission was

the oil sensor guage.

Could be the wrong oil sending unit, should double check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge and replace the oil sending unit. AT their cost of course.

Or the wire coming from the sending unit is damaged and has a bare spot that's touching something metal. Inspect the wire carefully, repair it and secure it away from anything metal. HTH. -Jim
