Re: Oil pressure gauge

The same thing happened to mine and turned out just being the oil pressure sensor. It is the cheapest thing to start with but will still coast around $50 from a dealership. It's a quick job if you have the right socket for it and it is located right above the oil filter. (easier to get to underneath the truck)
