Help losing oil pressure at idle.

00 sport 4.0 auto. Oil level is good, pressure is normal under throttle. But ever time I stop or coast to log I'm getting "check gauges"and sering my oil pressure at 0.

I'd say either the oil pump is worn or possibly the pick up tube screen is partially plugged...

9 times out of 10 that is nothing more than a defective oil pressure sender. Before assuming it is from an engine problem, replace the sender which is mounted close to the oil filter.
