Anybody ever get the symptoms of oil pressure bouncing between 60 and 80 PSI at about 2000 RPM?

Once in a while it'll jump up over 80, almost pegging the needle. At no time does it drop below 25 PSI, even at idle.

Motor has 172K miles on it and runs great.

I would replace the oil pressure sender on the engine sounds like its on the way out.

Checked them out. Mine fluctuates more when it's hot, but it does it cold too. But on the high side. Is the O.P.Switch by the oil filter I hope, like on the 2.8? I'll change it and see what happens.
