Help!

Alright I was driving the bird, and the oil pressure gauge started to kind of freak.

When I give it a decent amount of throttle the gauge goes to low, and when I get back up to cruise speed the gauge goes back to normal.

What is the problem?
I think it could be the sending unit but i don't know.

Please help guys.

Thanks.

Have you checked the oil. Kinda sounds like it if low enough that when you rev it up. It sucks the oil up faster than it can return to the pan. Happens if you are really low.

Flyin with the bird's or runnin with the cat's either is better than ridin horses!

its the sender or the contact.....your oil is fine. If you really had an oiling problem bad enough, you would know it in about 10 seconds....the pressure gauge goes to normal if the sender reads 7psi, its just a mo-ron gauge.

A low oil level will cause the gauge to fluctuate as described, based on my experience. However, the sender/contact advice is good -- every oil change, I clean the contacts, and make sure the connection is tight. A loose contact will make the gauge reading fluctuate. If the sender is old, it would not hurt anything to replace it.

Alright thanks guys.
The oil level is fine I checked it.
I guess the sender is just jacked.


It could definately be worse though
