Default few issues with my '93 Ranger.

Hi everyone. I am having some troubles with my '93 Ranger. Here are the main things I have noticed.

-When it's idling parked/stopped the ruck shakes. When im driving down the road it runs great.
-When I am stopped at a stop light I notice the needle on my oil gauge go's all the way down then moves back and forth kind of erratically.
-There is a Tsssssss! kind of sound in the belt area near the power steering pump. I sprayed some WD40 on it and its stops for a little then it comes back after a while. Any ideas what this could be?

One of the other guys had this same issue, along with myself. But the other guy (can't remember who) replaced the stock belt with a Dayco belt and hasn't squeeked or made anymore sounds yet. And he's put a few hundred miles on it. I have one on order, but the mail in Germany takes forever! I'll let you know how mine turns out when I get the new belt.

wd40 on the belt?.. not a good idea
as far as oil pressure issue, change the sending unit.
