After my truck sits over night it starts really hard and has started taking multiple time to finally start but starts really hard and rough sounding. I noticed after I got the truck that the oil pressure gauge reads around 60 when I'm driving and then well under 40 when I'm stopped. Or after starting it for the first time it's shows it's very high and then after the first time starting it and it starting rough, any time starting it after that it starts just fine. Don't have much if any extra money right now so I'm hopping to find out what to change and not have to change but just one sensor or whatever it may be the first time around. Please let me know if you have the answer. It would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time. Nate

Start by checking your oil pressure-could be your oil pressure sending unit causing it-

Id start with the basics. Take the battery cables off and pull back those rubber boots. If its not shiny copper color or has all that fuzzy green stuff then that is definitely a good place to start. A wire toothbrush is excellent for cleaning these.
