Oil pressure gauge all over the place

Postby wodell0673 [OP] » Jan 15 2011, 3:39am

I have a 2006 GMC Sierra and for quite a while now my oil pressure gauge has been screwed up. For a wile now it was pinned to max pressure once the truck was running. Just recently now it is bouncing from max to zero and pinging low oil pressure each time it does (driving me crazy with the pinging). I am thinking it is the sending unit but am looking for suggestions. If you do think it is the sending unit can someone please give me an idea of were I can find it. Thanks for any info.
