The oil pressure guage on my 2006 nissan frontier is reading very high after recently changing the oil, however, the correct amount of oil was added during the change. Furthermore the oil dipstick indicates the correct oil level was obtained. I've changed the oil in this vehicle many times in the past, and this has never happened. The gauge generally sits right in the middle under normal operating conditions.


The guage may rise a little when you accelerate the vehicle...but if it is pegged high, and does not fluctuate, when you turn your ignition key on an off...Your oil pressure switch maybe going bad...Goodluck ... 2006 Nissan Frontier

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo approx 147000 miles. Recently notices oil pressures going up to 80psi periodically when driving. If I turned off the engine and restarted it would read normally.

The other night after I started the engine - the pressure droppped to around 10, and with the engine at idle - dropped to sero with check guage light


Very first thing you need to do is install a mechanical pressure gauge on there to verify what you see on your gauge. If the actual pressure is low, then it's time to start looking inside the engine. If not, then you need to trace out the electrical ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

On the 3.8 L V-6 in the Lincoln Contiential, are there 2 oil sensors? 1 for low oil level & 1 for oil pressure? Do they work in combination to give readings to the oil level / pressure indicator light on the instrument cluster? Where are they located?


Nope, you just have a single 2 way oil sensor, this is located right on top of where the oil filter is positioned. for repairs, the wires on the sensor are attached to the oil sensor with a small clip. Disconnect\015\012the wire from the ... 1994 Lincoln Continental

I have a 2005 Buick Lesabre and just started having the oil pressure light come on and the pressure readings fluctuate wildly between 0 and 130. Car runs great and not making any weird noises.

Temp guage read hot, volt guage reads low, and oil pressure guage tops out. Could this be a bad ground?


Possibly, i would check the sending unit and of course the wires that connect to the temp prob. They often become worn or even short out on other wires. I suspect that the gage is telling the truth and you have a blown head gasket. Check the oil for ... 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
