What does everyone's oil pressure run at on there 4.0? What's normal psi in the gauge? When I start it. It goes to 40 on the gauge. There for a while once it would get to operating temp it would go to 0psi but now it goes down to about 20. I ordered a sender. Should I cancel the order?

My guess is it's for auto lights? I forgot to plug mine in when I put my new header in.

I believe that's for the overhead temperature display. The auto light sensor is on the top of the dash.

Mine usually sits around 20 when it's warm. Shoots up when I get on it, then gradually decays back to 20. I used to think that was low, but just got used to it.

You need 10 psi per 1000 rpms.

Ding, ding, ding! Ambient temp sensor, feeds the data to the overhead display.

The airbag sensor is a box-like thing behind the bumper
