Oil Pressure Gauge Fluctuating
I have a 2000 Mustang GT 5-spd with about 152,000 miles. Just yesterday I noticed the oil pressure gauge was fluctuating when at idle or my clutch was in. It would go from normal (little more than half way) back to 0. Once I start to drive it goes back up to normal. I noticed this only happens when my car is cold and not warmed up yet. I also haven't changed my oil in 8,000 miles. I know, I'm a terrible person!!! I just haven't had but like $60 to my name on a good day. I'm a student so I'm not Mr. Moneybags yet. I have read in different threads that this could be the oil sender unit, or even just crappy Ford manufacturing and there's nothing I can do about it. Any ideas will help, and I plan on getting my oil changed in the next few days.
