Oil Pressure Problem

My oil pressure gauge is fine when I am driving but when my car is at idle, the gauge bounces around all over the place. I think it's my oil pressure sender but I'm not sure. It's not a big deal but it really pisses me off. Any suggestions on where I could get another sender and how hard it would be to fix?

Mine ticks about +/- 0.5 bar at idle when warm. I think it is the gauge. Could be a ground somewhere. I hate to say it but my clock is the best gauge in the car. Your wobble sounds worse than usual. If you know someone with a quality external oil pressure gauge you can hook it up and see what that says. New senders are about $45 from Pelican, gauges about $95. I would think changing the sender would be about a 4 on the PITA scale. You may have to drop the power steering pump.
