High oil pressure question

Have a 99 4 banger, every once in a while the oil pressure guage will go up to 80 lbs and stick there. The only way to make the pressure come down is to stop, Rev the motor and then the guage will come back down to 40 +/-.

Reving the motor while running in gear, will not bring the pressure down.

Motor has 60K

Any ideas?

How do you check the Oil Pressure Sending unit?

Sending unit is toast.
Ours did the same thing, then it stayed pegged.
