The oil pressure in my Dodge Ram has recently been dropping to or very close to zero when I come to a complete stop, it doesn't always happen but usually it does. However when I get back on the gas it instantly comes back up to 35-40, the normal range.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi acd1188, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

What you need to do here is check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge if normal replace the oil pressure switch abnormal oil pump pressure relief valve could be sticking-for me sounds more like the oil pressure switch is out of calibration
