Question 04 6.0L oil pressure drop

just bought an 04 f250 with 94,000 miles on it. it is my first diesel so i dont know much about them. my oil pressure gauge started dropping when my truck gets below 20mph or i let off the gas for 10 seconds or so. also the oil pressure gauge drops when in park. the oil pressure gauge goes back up to its normal position whenever i give it a little gas. anyone know what i should do?

replace your oil pressure switch located behind your oil filter housing, it is a black one pin connector, make sure you clean the connector, and it is a 1 1/16 deep socket that fits over it.

replace your oil pressure switch, it is a common problem on these engines, it is located behind your oil filter housing. It is a 1 1/16 inch deep socket that fits over the switch, it is the one pin connector

It's probably a Ford only part. I would use OEM.
