    My oil pressure gauge is always pegged. I have heard this is because the wire shorts out. Where do I look for the short?

    Start at the sender and work your way back till you get to the cluster, It could either be a bad sender or a shorted out wire. The sender is in the back behind the distrubutor on the block.
