Did you use an A/C Delco oil pressure switch?

I was going to suggest the check valve may be stuck, but since it is intermittent, I doubt that. I can only think of a bad switch but that has been changed so I am at a loss.

You could put a mechanical guage on it to verfiy the actual pressure. Then you'll know if it is a guage problem or not.

My mech ran a oil press guage to check the press and verify it was a bad switch. That when we replaced the guage with a new one.

Hmm, maybe a bad one? I'd probably be inclined to R & R it again.

Maybe a wiring problem then.
