Notice

NOTICE: As an essential business operation, we are currently open for business during the COVID 19 shut-down period.

Occasionally the oil sender unit will short out internally and cause the needle to peg out but return to 0 when the key is turned off.
If you suspect a faulty sender, unplug the sender and inspect for oil leakage and monitor the gauge's reaction with it unplugged to see if you get the same reaction.
