Re: Would this pressure sender work as a replacement?
It would not, our gauges aren't linked DIRECTLY to the sender, and are buffered.. The signal they get is averaged out, that way it doesn't drop or rise the way the oil pressure actually does (keeps people out of the service garage for unnecessary warranty claims)
If you saw your gauge fluctuate from the bottom to the top of the range without going out of limits.. frequently and often (and you were an average driver used to a typical one-spot gauge) you'd be worried, right?
In other words, to my knowledge (I've been wrong before) a different pressure sender will not make the gauge read differently
A pressure sender + aftermarket gauge WILL read differently
