hello all, i am a new member to Benzworld, i have a 1993 300CE that just started to have an erratic oil pressure gauge- symptoms are: at start up gauge bounces between 0-1.5 not the 3 as usual, when i put car in drive needle goes to 3 upon acceleration but drops to 0 when i let off the gas pedal, when i come to a stop and car is idling needle goes back to 2.5 to 3 even though its at a complete stop, when i accelerate needle goes back to 3- engine temp is normal, RPM's are good, acceleration is great, no strange noises. is this a common problem ? is it a major problem ? any feedback would be appriciated ! THANKS.

Sounds like a bad oil pressure sensor. They have a list price of $80+ and can be found at Autohaus AZ for under $30.
