Tip & How-To about Chevrolet 1500
Many of GM pickups that have 70,000 miles on the engine will not start due to low oil pressure or a bad low oil pressure switch. So before having a truck or car hauled off to the shop check your oil level. No need to pay $65.00 for shop charge plus the tow and one quart of oil. The location of the oil-sending unit is on the back of the block between the fire wall and motor. It has a three-wire connector. Buy a pressure switch so you can see what size wretch you will need to get it off with.
An easy way to know for sure is turn the key to the run position, do you here the fuel pump run? No? Then it is most likely the switch. .
