I would plumb a test gauge and check the oil pressure and see what you got... Then replace the stock sender and go from there...

I thought the 98+ cummins' were just indicator (on/off) gauges..? So if you have sufficient pressure, it reads 40, if not, it reads 0.

mine moves around...starts high when cold and goes down when warm. goes up with rpms. but i still think its a dummy gauge(ie it is based off other things, like coolant temp and rpm, not actual pressure)

Sorry for the late post changed sender gage varies with temp like yours. :hyper:

It depends on the flash the ECM has, if the software is original then its still a gauge, if its newer its an idiot needle. The 3rd gens are only idiot needles, only a pressure switch is on the block. :banghead:

So if I get a reflash to get the fast idle and 3 cyl idle I will lose the functionality of the gage.

You guys need to idle them much lower and conserve fuel. :lmao: My oil pressure is always there at that temp, think 75F out right now, it goes up with coldness but hardly, just acts like a on/off gauge. When I hooked a real gauge up I see 90 on cold days and it will drop as it warms up going down below 60psi.

Tag on the side of the block says 920, which is actually where it sounds perfectly smooth to an incredible degree, but I don't want to snap my neck letting off the clutch :stuned:http://www.mopar1973man.com//isx97/Truck%20Stuff/Ryan's%20Dodge/Engine%20Pull/IMG_0430.JPG

Well that is interesting. Wonder why mine says to idle so high. It had a 16th left in it and I ended up going to town and back 60 mile round trip, probably good for another 50 :tongue: Gotta drive slow :lol:That idle thing though, hmmmmm, I'm gonna research and see what all the different cummins' idle at.

But they went back up to 800 on some of the 06 and newer flashes. Guys really hate it too, I guess its noisy.

Mine really isn't much louder at 920. Seems like it starts getting noisy anywhere over 1000.

Just wanted to confirm, the oil pressure gauge in my 01 is just an idiot gauge and does not really show oil pressure if the ECM has been reflashed? My gauge comes off of 0 and goes to around 60 when I turn the key on and don't even start. That doesn't seem to be correct.
