Thanks to all who explained about the 'idiot' (NORMAL) oil gauge in my 91 explorer. Where and how much can I purchase an oil pressure test gauge? Tried all local Napa, pep boys etc. with no luck.
 






You don't need to buy a specific "test" guage. I took an old Stewart Warner mechanical guage (any brand aftermarket mechanical guage will work) and installed a high pressure rubber line (it was a hydraulic line I found at the local hardware store) that's female end fit the SW's male fitting. The other end of the hose has a male fitting on it that can be threaded into an oil line fitting. It may sound cheap (it is), but it works.
