Oil Pressure guage MAXED OUT????
I have a 2003 1500HD 4X4. 6.0L engine with approx 100K miles.
A few days ago my oil pressure gauge started reading maxed out. Didn't matter whether the engine was at idle or running down the highway. As soon as I started it, the gauge pegged. Truck seemed to be running fine so I wasn't really worried about it. I was thinking its was just the gauge, or the sending unit.
Today it maxed out when I started it, but when I gave it gas, the pressure gauge would fall to zero. When I let off the gas, it would max out again. It did that for a while, then after the engine got warmed up, it just stayed maxed out. Now I don't know what to think. Engine still seems to be running fine.
Any ideas?? Suggestions?? I'm not sure what to think.
