Oil pressure

I have a 2005 E-350 6.0

The oil pressure gauge goes to 0 when the rpms go down to an idle. The truck starts fine and runs just like normal. I am not an auto mechanic but my best guess is the censer.

Does anyone know if the chain auto part stores will plug in the computer to see what that says?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the ORG.

Auto Zone and Advance will.

If not get an after market oil pressure gauge and see what it really is.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I went to the parts store today but it was not acting up.

What after market gauges would you recommend?

Has anyone run this engine on pre heated fry oil? $106.++ was not fun at the pump today

Thanks
Rick

The gauge is not linked into the pcm. There will not be codes in there if it's just the sensor. I've seen several of these fail recently. If you find oil in the connector then it's bad. DO NOT try to run the motor with the connector disconnected if it's leaking oil. It WILL make a mess. (Been there done that) The only bad part of this situation is that the sender for this is on the top of the motor right by where the oil tube that goes to the top of the turbo comes out of the oil cooler.
