Oil pressure drop


I have a 1987 Chrysler Le Baron with about 1160,000 miles on it. It runs great but the other day on the freeway I noticed that the oil pressure gauge started to flucutate. It went from normal to "0" and stayed there for a while..I pulled over and the needle went back to normal again..I checked the oil, put in a quart but the needle still goes up and down. It seems as if it only happens when I go over 65mph, in a curve on the freeway or when I accelerate. It stays down until I slow down a bit. I hear no grinding noices or anyting else that should alarm me.

any idea what this can be?

by time you hear something it will be way too late

you need to remove the sender unit and install a mechanical gauge with a long hose (tape it to the windshield) and drive it and see what it does

let us know what you find
