    I don't want to drive it if there's no pressure!

    Started it up a minute ago, oil pressure jumped up to the middle like normal, then shot down to 0, then shot back up to normal, then 0 and stayed at 0.

    Any thoughts?

    Think it's a bad sensor from being so cold, or what?

    Just washed it yesterday, and it was fine until now.

    No strange sounds or anything.

    Think I found my answer, lower block somewhere... I'll take a drive to A/Z and see if I can get a new one today.

    It quit sticking on the next start-up, so I will postpone replacing it until I have a nice dry place to do it. :p

    Picked up the new oil pressure switch from AutoZone for $10.

    Thanks all!
