Get a haynes manuel at advance auto parts. It will tell you everything you need to know to get the oil pump off, which is what the problem seems to be.

GM said the sensor by the oil filter on a 1997 achevia is a crank sensor you its a oil presser sw. and it is linked to Ign sw. how , will the eng die in a second if the wires are broken or the sensor


the oil pressure sensor tells the ECM when there is insufficient oil pressure to safely run the engine
when you start an engine there is oil covering the pump inlet and the pressure buils up
if there is insufficient oil to maintain pressure ,or the pump cannot maintain a low preset pressure , the ecm will shut the engine down to protect it
like wise if the wiring is loose /faulty the signal from the sensor is interrupted and that tells the ecm to shut the engine down
again if the sensor is faulty , the ecm will shut the engine down
how to fix :-
install a mechanical oil gauge in the system and check for oil pressure achieved
replace the sensor switch with a known good one
run the fault codes

2002 international 4400 truck W DT466e engine No start after replacing air brake compresser


It doesn't make any sense that you HP pump died while you were replacing the air compressor. Also, I don't think the crank circuit has to see oil pressure in order for the starter to turn...where would the pressure come from if not the pump rotating , how were you going to test for pressure if the starter isn't supposed to crank with a gauge installed? Does the A/C gear drive the oil pump?

2002 4.8l gmc yukon oil pressure problem


My suggestion would be to check it with a mechanical gauge.
You would need to use a Tee fitting to use the sensor to have fuel pressure.
If the mechanical gauge shows steady pressure at idle, it could be a problem in the wiring or the instrument cluster.

1993 chevy pickup z 71 driving down interstate and check gauge light came on and oil presure dropped to 0. Truck died and cant start again


It could be the oil pressure sending unit, or the engine could really have no oil pressure.
If the oil pressure dropped to zero at highway speed, I would expect the engine to lock up or at least make alot of noise.
You may have to tow it home and check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, or replace the sending unit to see if the gauge on the dash reads pressure.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay at startup, then runs off power from that oil sending unit when the engine is running.

1999 suburban 5.7L - Oil pressure gauge bounces back and forth between 40 and 50 pounds very rapidly


Replace the oil pressure sensor located near the oil filter. When this part starts to fail you will see your oil pressure gauge bounce all around

Engine oil pressure light will flash sometimes when shifted into park, not every time. 90,000 miles showing 3.0 liter v6


REmove the pressure transducer and test with actual pressure gauge. If within spec at the exact conditions, replace transducer (oil presser sending unit.)

Possible oil pump problem


You need to determine if the engine has lost oil pressure (assuming the oil level is good) You need to place a mechanical gauge where the oil sending unit is that goes to your gauge. If this gauge reads low, you have an oil pump problem. Keep in mind that gauges and sending units can go bad. But the loosing power doesn't sound good. Start here to determine what is up.
