OIL PRESSURE FLUCTUATES

1998 Dodge Ram

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

when at idle my oil pressure gauge drops to nothing as soon as I raise the rpm's the pressure goes to normal range. I just had the oil pump, bearings and main replaced and it continues doing this. Any ideas on how to cure this problem?

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge if normal replace the oil pressure switch abnormal could mean oil pump and engine bearings/sludges
