Intermittent oil gauge. Sometimes it works, and is fine, and sometimes it drops o zero and stays here.
Is my sender going bad?
Unlikely. More likely…

How's the wiring? Mine was pretty crispy and needed some new insulation.
… wiring, or solder joints, or cluster connectors.
If I were to attempt to solve this problem by throwing parts at it, rather than diagnosis, the first part would be a new front main harness (starter,alternator,jump post.)
Diagnosis would start with a multimeter at the jump post connector pin for the sender or the fuse panel connector pin for the sender.
Of the dozens of “oil pressure” problems I’ve solved over the years, only one was through sender replacement.
