My oil pressure gauge at start up shows about 50 psi, after driving for about 20 minutes, the gauge goes down to about 20 psi. At a stop light the gauge goes as low as 8-10psi, and the check gauges light comes flickers on and off. Is this a oil sensor problem? And where is it located on the 350 engine? Thanks

The sensor is by the distributor, but alot of itmes oil filters cause this especially the cheaper brands. Make usre oil level is full.
