I have a 2005 Nissan Frontier pickup. It is the 6 cylinder engine. The oil was just changed in the truck and the oil pressure gauge is registering high oil pressure. The oil stick indicates the correct amount of oil is in the engine. Also, this truck has a pending recall for the Engine Control Module. Could that be the problem?
