hello, im new in the forum!

I read some post and I'm confused

I have a TB 06 and I have problems with my oil gauge

the pressure gauge marks 0 but when accelerated is increased to 275 (normal) and then falls to 0 again

it's the oil pressure sending unit? or Oil pressure switch?

thank'S

sorry for my bad english i hope you understand

Welcome! Do you have the I6 or the V8 engine? It could be the switch, or it could be a low amount of oil. Is your dipstick level OK?

Did the problem with the gauge start before or after you changed the oil?

Yeah, the 4.2L just has a oil pressure switch. Had to change one years ago on another brand and it was pretty easy. Have the replacement ready in case any significant quantity of oil decides to come out when you pull it.
