I am not sure I believe the digital dash or whether I am having a failing motor...although.....I do not believe so....at 0psi...this engine show "blow" after just a moment or two.....at high rpms the Oil Pressure goes above 50 and climbs in linearity to RPM.....any suggestions on a troubleshooting procedure...I know there is more than the sending unit....i.e. pump, pressure release valve, clogged returns etc........too many to think about without headache!
(1) DRIVERS SIDE just above the oil filter is a plug you can remove to check oil pressure.
(2) Behind the intake manifold... this is where the factory oil pressure sensor/sendors are located.
