Must be a problem with the gauge itself. Try replacing.

Step one on ANY DODGE, hook up a direct pressure tube and Gage, make sure you have the specified oil pressure, then hook up the electric garbage again, if theres none and you have replaced the sending unit replace the gauge, or do like I did, leave the direct pressure line and gauge hooked up and mount it

So I did the pressure gauge and no pressure still so I'm assuming I'm going to do a engine swap now 🤦🏻‍♂️

If you've been running without pressure you'd hear a very loud rod knock. Are you sure you need a new engine?

Now that I'm starting it to check the pressure with the gauge kit I'm hearing something from it but when I dropped the oil pan I didn't find anything

when you pull the pan even though you don't see anything that DOES NOT mean theres nothing wrong, if its been driver without oil pressure there is engine damage somewhere HOWEVER if the rids and intact and theres no damage to the block or heads, a rebuild might be cheaper than a new engine
I'm betting the oil pump is the culprit, but before I put money on it I have to ask, did any oil travel in the clear tube toward the Gage at all?
