Oil Pressure?????

Ok driveing today jeeps oil pressure gauge started dropping to 0
then going back to normal.... It did start ticking at one point but went away
it could be me or not seems a bit sluggish but the 20mph winds around here
dont make driveing easy.

The oil pressure then went back to normal and did not drop again

1) Could the pil pump be going?

2) Could I need to flush the motor out and new oil?

3) and hopefully this is it could the sensor be bad?

its a 1991 YJ with 4.0 5 speed and 140,000 miles

Pull the sending unit, sometimes they get plugged, make sure connection is OK. Usually oil pumps either work or don't unless you had some crap in the pickup
