    I've been monitoring my temp gauge and find that it fluxuates considerably when at an idle to when the rpm's are increased. I've checked the oil and water levels and both are fine. I am concerned that my oil pump is starting to crap out. I'm planning to install an oil pressure gauge this weekend it I can't figure it out. Any suggestions?

    Everybody's oil pressure gauge fluctuates. Mine generally moves from the second to the third line during acceleration and it shouldn't bother you.
