95 caprice check gage light goes on oil pressure drops but when i press the gas it goes back up and light goes off any ideas


1st, do not drive this until you are sure the oil pressure is ok, have the pressure verified with a mechanical test gauge, if it is ok the sending unit for the electric gauge is likely defective.

I have seen this problem, if you have no oil pressure the engine would be rattling, the oil pressure sending unit could be bad, you can buy a oil pressure gauge to test and make sure oil pressure is ok, the sending unit may fix your problem.

Oil light came on and low oil pressure or no oil pressure. But oil level is fine. 2003 Chevy sierra


spend the 12 dollars and get a universal mechanical oil pressure gauge, remove the oil sending unit on truck and screw new gauge into and start truck. Does it read pressure? I know people will say just replace oil sending unit but i like to visually check for a true oil pressure than to trust a light, at least you will know what pressure your motor has. if you have pressure then replace the sending unit. Most of the time when the sending unit goes bad your oil pressure gauge in the truck will run at 80 psi all the time. Since you have a light the sending unit just says it isn't getting pressure which turns a light on. So be safe and do as i suggest, if there is no pressure at the mechanical gauge then i hate to say it but you may have a bad oil pump. I honestly just think you have a bad sending unit,if you want just replace it and if lights go off thats good, but you still don't know what the pressure is and if you feel comfortable with this then do so.

Low oil pressure


Sorry to say, but oil sending unit has nothing to do with oil pressure. Best case scenario for low oil pressure would be you need an oil and filter change. Better case scenario would be you need to drop oil pan and clean screen on bottom of the oil pump. Worse case scenario would be due to excessive miles on engine which causes wear on compression rings and/or crank shaft bearings where oil pressure originates from. It might be good to have a compression test done on all cylinders by a certified mechanic or at least someone who knows what they're doing. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Good luck! over4dy

Oil pressure problem


there is no oil up in the intake area so its nothing you could have done BUT the oil pressure reading comes from the oil pressure sending unit near the dist. housing. you had to remove the dist. when changing the intake so maybe the sensor or it's connection are loose.
good luck chris
