Oil pressure

Hello everyone, i am new to your community and already have a question. I have purchased a 1997 wrangler TJ and had it lifted 2.5" and they had to drop the transfer case 2" to remove shimmy. Well thats fine however now had a idiot light today tell me to check guages and when i did the oil pressure was almost 0 but then would rise to about 15-20 with the highest pressure being around 35. I never noticed this before now just after picking it up. What do you guys/gals think. It flucuates constantly between 5 and 30 more or less.

Re: Oil pressure

If there is no change in the mechanical noises of the engine, it most probably is the oil pressure sending unit.
