Gauge Help

I hooked up an oil pressure gauges 0- 100 psi and everything works but when you turn the car on the needle immediately jumps to the maximum 100psi and stays thereÖ.I know my car 98 old cutlass can not have a oil pressure reading of over 100psi..Any suggestions

Re: Gauge Help

If this is an electrical gauge you might have the wires turned around,
or the sending unit is the wrong one or faulty.

Re: Gauge Help

no the oil pressure is not that high!

You might also have the wrong sending unit.
You need the one specific to the gauge you are hooking up.

Other then that, it could be wired wrong
