Oil pressure has been a fake reading for over 15 years.

Go get em!

so you dont believe that the oil pressure cold is around 50 psi and it drops to 35-45 depending on run condition when it gets warmer. I had a '17 duramax that was about the same, acted the same and was confirmed with and edge insight. Why would they make the guages fake?
Yes the oil pressure gauge is fake. It doesn’t read oil pressure just uses the oil pressure switch (over 5 psi) and computer algorithm. Chrysler is to cheap to install a real pressure sensor. This has been discussed and proven already. Don’t know about the oil temp. Also unless you installed a real pressure gauge edge insight is using what the computer is saying.

Yea I agree.

I see! Thanks for the information!

I see. Well I was under the wrong understanding but it makes sense. I guess it is just a good indicator of something goes wrong.

MC_Diesel I've experienced the same situation on mine. I've only got about 1,400 miles on my truck, but I've noticed that the exhaust filter gauge is always at 0%. I saw it once register about 30% and it went into regen shortly thereafter and back to 0%. I don't think this gauge is at all accurate.

I see. I will have to pay more attention. I usually just leave it on the temperatures page. Thanks
