Oil Preassure from Evic
I was chacking the different gauges on the EVIC while driving, and I noticed that the OIL preassure fluctuates from 28-29( no foot on pedal) to about 50psi at full acceleration.

Is this normal.

I have also noticed that when it goes into ECO mode it also drops.

Mine does not fluctuate when vehicle is warm at idle. But yeah the highest I have seen is 48.

Same with mine. I have the 5.7 Hemi. I was thinking that the electronic display gauge is run 4-20 mA, and that the readings are real time, rather than the older "dummy needle" that operates only in certain ranges?

It is perfectly normal.

yeah its normal. my Jeep cold idle is a lil past the 80# mark, when its warm my idle psi is around 45#. when you rev it, it should go up. basically increases with engine speed.

Perfectly normal if you see 0 psi then you know you have no oil it gauges pressure not volume obvioulsy.
