    Oil Pressure gauge

    Has anyone had their oil pressure gauge be jerky? Kind of like a second hand on a watch, both up and down. It reads accurate, just jerky. I am thinking its an electrical problem, probably the sending unit. Its an 01 WS6. Thanks for any replies.

    Good to know, thank you guys! my mom's 98 at idle bounces around big time and it had me worried.. It REALLY jerks down and then pops back up at odd times.

    what's the lowest it gets? I would keep a really close eye on it. Jumping around that much isn't normal. It could be something as simple as the pressure sending unit or it could be a pump on the way out or something along those lines.
    What's the idle like on the car? Does it stay steady or is the car missing or anything like that?
