Really confused by this one. Changed the sending unit on my 2000 roughly 3 weeks ago and oil pressure read like normal (around 60 during acceleration, 45 at idle). Yesterday, I crank it only to find my oil pressure gauge maxed out. I drove it back to school that way and had no issues. I drove it earlier today and no change, pressure gauge is maxed out Any idea of what could be the matter?
If you bought the sending unit from autozone or advanced or the like it is likely faulty. I only use the ones from jeep because of the same problems with 2 in a row from autozone.

sorry for a thread jack, but its kinda the same topic, but just saying, my pressure gauge kinda fluxuates, like it stays right around 40 but sometimes its right above, sometimes it right below, some time its right on 40, but mine moves around slightly
Check if unit is for a gauge or not,same thing happen to our xj started it up look good and then pegged.checked around and there are two types got 1st one from dealership, 2nd from rockauto,should be listed gauge or not.if your going to replace it worth checking it out?
