After engine warms up and you come to idle the oil pressure guage drops to zero, it comes back up when you accelerate, there is no engine noise, is this a engine problem or the guage?
Do you
have the same problem?

Do an oil pressure check with a mechanical gauge - if normal replace the oil pressure sending unit-If not could be the oil pump or engine bearings-

Hi there,

Have the engine oil pressure tested with a master gauge, this will give a true indication as to engine oil pressure. Hopefully you just have a faulty sender unit. Do the test first.
