    Have a 2007 4900 with a Detroit series 60 engine. Had oil start leaking out of dash in middle of it around the ECM and there is no oil lines running into cab. It quit after a while and didn't leak anymore.

    I had a Series 60 years ago that had a factory mechanical oil pressure gauge. For the computer it uses a sensor.

    Got oil in your air system? It blows out from the brake valves behind the dash.

    2 things I would check. See what kind of oil gauge you have. Maybe it's a mechanical gauge if so that's probably why.
    Check the air tanks and see if u are pushing oil.
