my shifting problem is solved. Adjusted modulator valve.

I noticed some black motor oil in driver side floor pan. Raised carpet and there was lots of the stuff there. Haven't had time to check it out yet. Looks like it may be coming in near steering column. Anyone have a quick answer?
Thanks, Oldcarpappy.

the vacuum pump goes bad and engine oil finds its way to the ignition switch.

maybe the oil pressure gauge is leaking as well

I found The oil leak. The oil pressure gauge is leaking. Is there a simple way to replace it? Do I need to take it to a service shop? Will appreciate any information.

Thank you very kindly, Oldcarpappy.....[?][?]

Don't waste your money at a repair shop. The cluster just pulls out (be careful not to pull the clear lense off, best to push from underneath), unscrew the speedo cable, pull the connectors off of the speed sensor (press the locks together first), clock, tach (if you have one) and main cluster connector. Unscrew the oil line and the whole cluster comes out. Then the gauge is removed by taking out some screws. Once you know how to do it, only takes 10 minutes (or less) to remove it.
