Sounds like the wiring harness connection in the back of the speedo cluster is loose. This will cause crazy reading and the vehicle will perform like normal... sound about right??

SOURCE: Oil pressure sensor is moving up and down while driving and need to check the fuse but can't find it.

No fuse for the switch on the engine although the cluster has a fuse for the instrument gauges

SOURCE: A light comes on in my car that says oil pressure

If the light is only turning on during acceleration or deceleration and then goes off, this is normal. If the light is constant, and you are sure you have oil that is up to the "full" or "max" level on the dipstick while hot, then it might point to a faulty oil pump or worn gaskets that will no longer prevent the oil from staying in place in the engine. Is this light accompanied by a check engine light. If so what is the code. You may also have a faulty oil sensor. Hope this helps

2000 5.3 tahoe gas in oil


Fuel injector problem , leaking fuel pressure regulator ,

Causes of gas in oil
On my 94 Chevy blazer, gas in the oil was caused by a ruptured diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator that is attached to the fuel injector. Flooding the engine. An over abundance of gas in your cylinders will wash down your cylinder walls and accumulate in the oil pan.

My gas hand is bouncing up and down on my 1996 chevy tahoe


The sending in tank is deffective. The sendind unit has a arm on it with a float when gas is lowered or filled it pushes the float up or down a magnetic strip sends the info to the gas gauge on instrument panel. If the unit is defective it gives false readings. Hope this helps!

The "Check Gages" light comes on all the time now.


The "check gages" light comes on in response to the oil pressure (not oil level) gage dropping too low. Step one is to check to make sure the engine has oil pressure. Use a mechanical gage inserted directly into the engine when the oil pressure sensor screws in. If the pressure is good, you need to check the gage. Your dealer has a tool that attaches to the connector from the pressure switch that gose to the gage. He can then test the gage, cluster and circuit wiring. If that is ok the culprit is the oil pressure sensor itself. I normally don't recommend replacing parts without a proper diagnosis but an oil pressure switch is relatively inexpensive. You might want to try that first. It's relatively common anf if that's the culprit, you will save a bunch of $$$ no having to go to your dealer. If you still have a problem, you have at least eliminated one item and are only out a couple of bucks.

Oil gage needle bouncing up and down


There is a sending unit right by oil filtersometimes it get clogged . However, this is a 16 year old car have them check out the oil pump pressure with a gauge.
Oil pump on this car is a pain in the @##%^ to do but its better than a new engine.
