My oil PSI gauge is goofy? Is anyone elses gauge like this? Sometimes its at 80 sometimes 1/2 way while driving. At idle its normal, never in the red. Sometimes at like 70-80mph its a lil above 1/2 way mark and sometimes its at 80psi. bad sensor? chunks of motor sucked into somewhere? no idea. and that makes me nervous to beat on the car cause when i floor it it goes 80psi+ with no problem. never smokes and oil & filter is brand new. Please help..

the oil gauge on my car stays about a notch above red at idle, then shoots up when i floor it, but it ALWAYS stays down at least one FULL notch under 80. I don't think that will help you much but maybe?

Yeah. I thought that would be about the normal, what your explaining.. But mine doen't behave that way. Anyone else have / had this problem?
