oil pressure problems

At least that is what i think it might be... Whenever I start up the jeep now and it is at idle it read 0 ol pressure, but as soon as you rev the engine it jumps up between 20-25. This sound like a oil problem or a sender problem?? Any suggestions, I don't want to be driving around if I have to oil pressure obviously so i have the weekend to get it figured out. Right now it has a chevy 305 in it if that helps anyone. Thanks

Re: oil pressure problems

Most likely a sender problem. My 258's does the same thing, if I bang on the sender with a screwdriver, it will work for a while. They aren't expensive or hard to replace.

Re: oil pressure problems

It's probably the sender. You could always stick a mechanical guage in there to verify.
