How often do you change your oil and what type of filter are you using?
It could be as simple as the sending unit or sometimes the filter can cause this.

it had been a couple of 1000's miles since last oil change, so i changed the oil and replaced the off-brand filter with the best grade (of fram) and it seems
to have done the trick. i'll find out more tomorrow when i put it road thanks alot
