I have a 1999 Lamborghini Diablo, The oil pressure on a cold

Customer Question

I have a 1999 Lamborghini Diablo , The oil pressure on a cold start is maxed in the red then as I have driven it a couple of miles it will drop down into the 9 and 8 bar range than I will notice it will be in the 6 bar area then later back to 8 bar. Traveling at the same speed for about 20 miles the gauge might fluctuate from 9 bar to 4 bar. Thinking either the oil pressure check valve, gauge sender, gauge or something else.
Thank you
John.
