Oil guage up all the way

I know that someone has posted something like this before but i couldn't find it.

Sometimes when it is hot out - like today - my oil guage sky rockets and stays all the way to the top (80)

I think I should test the guage with an external guage??? otherwise high oil pressure isn't a terrible issue?

I hope I am remembering this correctly from a few months back.

When this happens, I don't notice anything wrong with the jeep.

There is no need to go to the trouble of testing it with an external gauge, odds are it is nothing more than either a bad oil pressure sender (mounted near the oil filter) or perhaps the electrical connection at the sender is just dirty/grimy from oil/dirt and just needs to be flushed with something like WD-40 which is highly effective at such tasks. Just shake or blow the excess WD-40 out of the connector and sender jack before plugging them back together. I would clean the connectors before buying a new sender.

I thin 50% of everyone on this forum has replaced their oil sender at least once.
