I have been getting a erratic reading on my dash gash gauge. I changed the sender and for a month it looked normal again 250K on the unit. It sounds and runs good. It is kinda creepy to watch the gauge go so far to the left? Does this sound familiar to anyone?
You can't go by the dash gage...they don't call them idiot gages for nothing. I have both...the dash and a real oil pressure gage. Like you I have changed the oil pressure sending unit several time just to have the dash gage read low again...and again...and again...so with the real oil pressure gage I can see what is really going on...everything reads as it should even when the dash gage has decided to take another nose drive
. So my advise is if you are worried about your oil pressure readings then get a real pressure gage so you'll know if there is a real problem or not.
