    I've seen the other posts but I can't quite fond one with the exact same problems so here's mine. When im idling (usually does it the worst with ac on) my oil pressure drops to half then 0 on stock gauge. Goes up of course when I rev up or accelerate. It doesn't do it as often if ac is off. My idle is 1000-1100 ac off and 900 with it on. I've replaced the sending unit. My next step is to check the pump seal and get a mechanical gauge. Does anyone have any other advice?

    Install an aftermarket gauge. My oil pressure and water temp gauges crapped out.. The stock gauges suck and are pretty much dummy gauges. I installed aftermarket gauges and have had no issues.
