OIL Pressure drops, on my 08 5.7 Hemi motor, the engine sounds fine but something is not right with it. Is the sending unit my best option for fixing it?

Asked by Jan 14, 2016 at 02:22 PM about the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 ST Quad Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 08 Dodge 5.7 Hemi has and issue with the oil pressure dropping at highway speeds, when you slow down it seems to go back. Stopped checked oil it is fine and I am thinking it must be the sending unit, but I would really like to hear from someone more in the know then me. Can anyone help? The truck does have a lot of moles on it but has always had regular maintenance and has never cause me any problems.
Thank for any advice you can give. Mike
