97 TJ oil pressure drops after warmed up...

Can anybody explain this? After driving for about 10 minutes on highway, first time i put the clutch in the oil pressure gauge drops to 0 and fluctuates between there and the first line on the gauge. When RPMs increase it returns to normal pressure. Had someone tell me this is normal but somethin just doesn't seem right.

It's probably your oil pressure sending unit. It's right near your oil filter. It happened to me too. It doesn't cost a lot...around 30 bucks. There are a bunch of threads on it if you do a search. This is a common problem
