Talking Active Oil Pressure Gage

My van just started having a very active oil pressure gage, I checked to see if it was full of oil, and it is, but the pressure is good as long as I am moving, but when I come to a stop sign, the oil pressure goes all the way down to where it is when you turn the engine off...It does not run funny, what could the problem be, what can I do to make my oil pressure stay up? This is a 91 Plymouth Voyager Mini Van. I hope this helps someone to figure out my problem.

Could be anything from a bad sending unit to an engine on borrowed time.....

Have your oil pressure checked.You could try an oil pressure switch they are fairly inexpensive.

Sounds like a Mopar product to me. Crappy OP sending units.

True, but GM products also had OPS problems too.

We won't know until the poster tells us

Could be normal.Not much oil is needed at idle.I had a oil guage on my 79 Camaro and the needle was very low at idle but maybe in your case of the needle being near zero is caused by low idle RPM.
