There is a high probability your vehicle does not even have an oil pressure ‘transducer’. Most use nothing more than a stupid pressure ‘switch’ that closes around 5 to 7 lbs and the PCM sets the dash gauge to set just above half way – to give driver a ‘warm and fuzzy’ feeling that everything is fine.

Generally, that is fine. Most non mechanic users aren’t familiar with the reasons oil pressure can range so wide from idle to full throttle anyway.

But, I don’t blame you for wanting to see it. That’s why I cursed the Ford engineers and put an aftermarket gauge in my Ford F150.
