Oil Pressure Gauge/Sensor issue?
I just bought a 2001 Ranger with a 2.5L engine. It seems very sound mechanically, the only issue is the oil pressure gauge/sensor.
It doesn't seem like the vehicle is running poorly, but according to the gauge there is sometimes a major issue with the oil pressure. A lot of times the gauge will either sit at the lowest point or bounce from the lowest point to the middle, then after the vehicle has been running a little while, it will sit right in the middle where it should be.
I am just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or what your thoughts are on my problem. Is it just a bad sensor or gauge, or is something seriously wrong with my oil pump/delivery system?
