As the title says...my oil pressure guage does not work on my 89 XR7 5speed

When you turn the ignition on....the guage moves a third of the way, then after you start the car it falls dead...all the way to the left.

I have drove this car 600miles in the last week....I think the car has some oil pressure or the bearings would have died miles ago....any ideas

Thanks

Could be a bad gauge or a wiring problem.....

Stock gauges are junk. My oil pressure gauge went bad too so I just bought one from autozone.

The oil pressure sending unit could be bad. You can try replacing that first as it's only about $5.
