low/high pressure gauge

the gauge on the left top of the instrument cluster. Does this gauge have a sensor that can be replaced? Every thing in the low and high pressure oil system on my truck has been replaced less than 1k miles on rebuild and that stupid gauge just started doing it again. I stopped at a red light and after a minute of sitting there the gauge dropped to nothing touched the gas pedal and it goes right back up stays for a few seconds and drops again. Never moves when driving. Oil level is spot on. What can I do?

5) Full EGR delete
6) Air Dog 2 165
7) full set of gauges
8) ladder bars
9) smoke switch (I Don't use it)
10) eliminated banjo bolts for 90 degree fittings
11) tuned by lots of people
12) ported heads

The dash gauge only reads 7psi basically just an idiot light. The computer does not even see this signal. The wireing goes from the sensor straight to the cluster gauge. The sensor is behind the oil filter houseing in the oil cooler cover single wire connector.

If you want to know the real pressure you will need a mechanical test gauge and a adapter, port is on bottom front of filter houseing. 45 psi min. 60psi avg running.

Thanks it was scaring me i thought i was starting this crap all over again. I will get a gauge to read low pressure oil. I will not worry to much about the dash gauge. Also i will check the wiring to see if it is frayed or loose. Thanks again
