I have a 05 ram 1500 4.7 none flex engine,  the oil gage
just started dancing up and down . I would start the truck
and let it run for a minute then the oil gage  would drop
then go back to normal level  and then do it all over again

there is something of an oil pressure regulator in the oil pan~ has it been long since you've religiously changed the oil? possibly dirt in the oil stream would try to flush the oil nice-n- clean, then could report~
