Pressure gauge

I recently bought an '04 X and sometimes when I fire it up the oil pressure gauge doesn't budge. It'll take three or four starts before it'll finally pop(and the annoying check gauges alarm goes off) and all is well. As this only happens once every two weeks or so I'm confindent there is no issue with the oil pump itself, but sure if I should start dinking the pressure sending unit or start by replacing gauge. Anyone else run across this problem?

Its a fairly common thing. Most of the time its the sending unit itself as these motors run a higher pressure than most others. Check the sending unit and make sure that all connections are tight and that its screwed in all the way. If so and the problem persists, replace it. It's a $7 part.
