this has been happening to my car lately and im confused on what to do. When i make a turn and turn my wheel all the way, my oil pressure gauge goes all the way down and my check gauges light goes off, then the gauge needle goes back up once i turn my wheel back to straight. During light turns the gauge dosent drop, and occasinally it will do the same thing when i brake hard enough.

any help is welcomed in how to fix this problem

Sounds like you need to add oil. The oil sloshes to one side out of reach of the pickup and results in low/no oil pressure. Also check the sending unit wire to make sure it is clean and has a good connection.

Definitely check the oil level.

The light comes on anytime the pressure drops below 6 psi.

The needle does not indicate actual pressure variations, unless the pressure goes below 6 psi.

It goes to an arbitrary position and stays there.
