    Default Oil pressure guage bouncing all over

    My oil pressure guage is normally pegged to the top reading 80 but has recently been bouncing from 0 to 80. None of the other guages seem to be doing anything out of the ordinary. Thanks in advance.

    the stepper motor that operates the gauge is bad. common problem on these vehicles. There is information on the web, and if you are handy with a soldering iron, you can get the motors cheap on ebay an replace them yourself.
