How does a pressure gauge work?

Reverse airflow feels a chamber inside the gauge and reads the pressure equal to the inside of the tyre its that simple. Same for air compressure, when the pressure is applied it seals the valve on the gauge end then back pressure fills the chamber inside the gauge when you release the gauge from the tyre valve the pressure has gone!!

GM oil pressure senders have a pretty high failure rate. Since your van is 10 years old, and pressure senders are not too expensive, I would start by replacing your sender...there's a pretty high likelihood that you will eventually replace it anyway.
