probably just bad sending unit

pretty common issue with these trucks

mines pegged out past 80psi always and it never moves and i dont worry about it

ive never seen a s-10 oil guage that worked right, i dont think one exists.


are you using stock guage and stock electric sender?

or?

if your engine isnt rattling or overheating then id not be worried about it
