CHEVY OIL PRESSURE GAUGE

1988 Chevrolet Silverado

Interior problem
1988 Chevy Silverado V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 43000 miles

My oil pressure gauge is always maxxed out when the engine is running. Someone told me that I would have to replace the whole gauge panel to fix this, but all of the other gauges work fine. Is this the gauge panel or could it be the sending unit?

It is most likely the oil sending unit has shorted out. It is a cheap and easy part to replace. I would try that before replacing the dash cluster.

Let me know if you have other questions.
