My husband has a 1998 Chevy Silverado 4x4 5.7 vortec. He recently had to replace his crank shaft censor that solved his issue of not cranking. Now, and even before, his oil gauge will jump from 0 to 40 back to 0 and repeat over and over and check gauges light will come on.

Not sure if you have fixed problem or not, but my husband has a 98 Chevy 1500 5.7 vortec. He was experiencing the same issues you are and had to replace his crank shaft censor.

Engine misfire? bad U-joint? if the turn signals work until you turn on your running
