    I am assuming that this is just the gauge being off, but my oil pressure fluctuates like crazy. You can watch it and the needle will just move back and forth. Sometimes when i turn, it will go up, sometimes down. I hope it is just the gauge, but you know what happens when you assume. Could it be the sender?

    Mine did that too (so did the voltmeter) when the battery cable to my starter wasn't making good connection. The power to those guages comes from the starter post. If the connection is wiggly so will the guages be.
