Hey all,

The last few days i have been noticing that the oil pressure in my 99 AU fairlane is a bit irratic. Its usual position is a bit over half way. But if i take my foot off the accelerator when coming into a roundabout it will jump right up. Then when i take off and give it a bit it will go back to normal. So my questions are:

1 Highish oil pressure isnt that bad is it??? (I know that low oil pressure is REALLY bad)
2 Could it just be a faulty sender??? (If so, how much for a replacement??)

Cheers in advance!!!

AU1's have an earth issue on the cluster that affects the oil pressure guage, will either read high or low

My AU goes from 0 oil pressure to about 3/4 of the way up the guage in no time

*thread mine alert*

Where would I check to test with a multimeter that I do not have the same problem? Excuse my novice electronic skills.
