Check gauge light on and oil pressure gauge out

Ok. About 1 out of 4 times that I start my truck, my oil gauge does not respond and my check gauge light comes on. Do you think it is just the gauge or is it possible that the oil pump is not working as well. I check the engine temp and it doesn't sky rocket when this happens so I figured it was just the gauge. Any thoughts?

Sounds like the oil pressure sending unit is faulty. Check your oil level first, then check the oil filter to make sure it is tight, then check the connection to the sending unit.
if those are all good, change the sending unit.
