When idling the oil gauge is running okay, then after driving a distance the oil guage will go to 0, and then the check guages light will come on. The garage tells me that this will be about 400 to fix. Any ideas about this problem?

Manually check your oil pressure with a gauge when it does this. It may be a bad oil pressure sender. Then get a good oil filter and see if it changes. Not a cheap one, they can cause low oil pressure
