Okay my oil pressure gauge needle is jumping all over the place. When I first start it, it sometimes stays at zero and the idiot light comes on, sometimes get up to normal run pressure. While I'm driving and I stop abruptly or exit the freeway it drops to zero and the idiot light comes on. When it drops and I am driving it I can bring it back up by giving it gas or turning up the fan. I've got plenty of oil and the temp never goes above normal. Anyone else have this problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Replace your oil pressure sender which is mounted close to the oil filter. They go bad and cause this exact problem, it happened to me too.
Yup, just did mine last week.

What regulates the oil pressure is a relife valve in the oil pump.
