Angry Help needed.

Ok i'm dumbfounded!!! i've been having problems with oil pressure for the last month!!! sometimes the guage reads low sometimes normal and sometimes it doesn't read at all??????? i looked it over for hours and i am lost!!!!!! the performance never changed the engines not knocking, it sounds normal??? i even took it out for a screw it, if she blows she blows run in the mud and it's still fine?????? any help or answers would be greatly appreciated.

The gauge does not read the actual pressure. Once pressure reaches like 7psi it jumps up to a preset level. There is a mod to correct this on FRF or RPS, sorry but I just don't remember which. Might try a search for the info. It may also be the sender.

Worst case you have crud in you oil pan blocking your oil pump pick up from not changing the oil or useing cheap oil. And the way to fix that is pull your oil pan an clean it out and the oil pump pick up which is cheaper than replacing an engine.
