My oil gauge is...

My oil gauge is pegged out showing high oil pressure on my 300D 4cyl. perkins. what could be the problem?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?

2007 model & no engine light. I've also have had a little problem with it shutting down on me now and then. but I can always turn the on switch off and back on and crank it back up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 300D yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing so far

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it.

The gauge is bad, If you really had High or low oil pressure the engine would shut down because of that and shut down /check engine lights would be on ,replace the gauge. Please take a moment to Rate/Accept my service

Ok, I will try that in the next couple days. I was thinking it might be the sending unit. this machine has always had small issues from time to time.

Ok you can try both but the sending unit would allow fault codes for oil PSI to be present. Thank you
