Does your RPM's go down as well? If your RPM's go down with the oil pressure, then the oil pressure is somewhat normal. If your RPM's stay above 800, then you might have a vent line loose or cracked.

Check your dip stick. Before I fixed my ranger it was burning coolant and oil , when the oil pressure went crazy and it was low when it did it. Also the company I worked for had a 99 f450 that did the same thing and the motor blew cuss nobody checked the oil.lol
just a thought.

rangers are bad about the oil pressure sending units going bad. especially in the 2nd and 3rd gen trucks. i'd check there first.
