Default hmmm?????

ok, so my truck is acting weird. when i come to a stop the oil pressure guage drops all the way and a "check guages" light comes on. it only does this for a second or two. also. when im doing highway speeds, 50-70 mph, my truck jerks, almmost like its sputtering, but my rpms arent affected when this happens. anyone have any ideas? i just replaced a bent push rod, valve spring. and valve seal on my #2 cylinder exhaust port. theres no check engine lights, just the check guages light, and it only come on for a second when i stop. my trucks a 98 1500, 318, 5 speed.

Verify the oil level is where it should be and put a mechanical gauge on it and see if the pressure drops when stopping.
