SOURCE: Engine oil leaking near sending unit. Replaced uni...

Look up overhead above the sending unit for any oil that maybe dripping from above,makeing you think it's the sending unit leaking. If not then you may use a little thread sealer to seal the leak. Also check to see if the sending unit is loose and the threads may not be the same as the old unit you removed (metric/standard/pipe) Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: 2003 1500 silverado 5.3l engine

The 2003 gm vehicles have a common problem within the instrument cluster panel. Each gage has a "stepper motor" soldered to the back side of the circuit board; and a very small shaft protroding through the circuit board with a needle for the gage attached . The stepper motors are about the size of a quarter in diameter with four terminals. They are small gearmotors. They do not have a spring return; so when they fail their needles do not return to home (0 psi for example or 0 miles/hour). You can find reputable repair shops online. One I know of in Minnesota is www.speedometerrepairguy.com. I bought the parts from him (on ebay) and soldered them myself but beware you need advanced soldering skills here not to mention a very good magnifying glass to inspect the solder joints. I hope this helps.
In my case the speedometer was hanging up in cold weather.
Replacing the stepper motors cured my troubles.

Engine oil light flashing


Flashing oil light indicates a loss of oil pressure. No oil pressure will cause the engine to seize up. Check the oil level, if full verify that the oil sending unit is connected correctly. Listen for unusual engine noise (Shut down immediately to avoid damage to the engine), connect an oil pressure gauge to the oil sending port (remove sending unit) and verify oil pressure. the issue could be a loose connection, broken connection or plugged sending unit, as well as loss of oil pressure.

2004 lincoln avaitor oil light comes on the engine shuts down


Does the oil light come on BEFORE the engine shuts down? I have to ask because it is NORMAL for the oil light to be on when the engine is not running. I had a customer that said the same thing just last week. After we wasted a bunch of time (which the customer ended-up paying for) checking the oil level, the oil pressure, and verifying correct oil pressure gauge, light, and sending unit operation, it turned out that the crankshaft position sensor was bad and causing the engine to shut down and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the oil light - it was functioning as designed.

If the oil light is coming on before the engine shuts down, the first thing you need to do is check your oil level. If the oil level is OK, you need to check the oil pressure with a gauge to determine if there is an actual engine oil pressure problem or if the oil pressure sending unit, gauge or light is malfunctioning. Also, it is highly advisable to not drive the vehicle AT ALL if the oil pressure light is coming on while driving until the cause of the light coming on has been determined and repairs have been made. Otherwise, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE may result.

Oil pressure is reading max on 05 serria is it the sending unit


  • It is either your sending unit or there is to much oil in your engine. Shut the engine off and pull the dipstick and have a look. If the level is as it should be the you need to change that Sending Unit ASAP.
  1. Should be on the front side of the engine about 2/3rds of the way down.
  2. Get yourself a Sending Unit socket (or a big enough wrench)
  3. Pop the connector off.
  4. Twist out the old sending unit and put the new one in. Easy fix to save your engine.

I have a 2007 chevy silverado. It was low on oil. I put 2 quarts in, oil light went off. When I drove it the low oil pressure light came on and also said engine shut down. What could be causing this...


If its reading low oil pressure I would first change your oil and filter.A clogged oil filter will cause your oil pressure to drop.Also remove your pressure sending unit and hook up a direct oil pressure guage to see what your actual pressure is.Its very possible that your oil pump could be bad.Those would be the most probable reasons for low oil pressure.The engine shut down means that your your engine has a fail safe to protect your motor from blowing up.

1998 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortec starts and runs but shuts down when reaching operating temperature.


Your fuel filter may be at it's life time and will need to be replaced. Start with the simple and replace that, the other thing also that would cause the engine to shut down would be a faulty oil pressure sending unit. What is the oil pressure on the dash when the engine shuts down. You need at least 8 PSI to have the engine stay running. Check your Fuel pressure at the shredder valve and you should be 62-65 PSI with the engine not running and fuel system energized, once the engine is running it should drop about 5PSI. The last thing that could cause this would be a bad ICM, once the ignition system heats up the ICM fails and the engine shuts down. A mentioned, start with the simple and replace the fuel filter and check your fuel pressure to ensure your fuel Sending unit has not gone bad and will need to be replaced. Good luck and keep me posted.

Oil light came on. On Interstate and drove about 9 miles to next exit. Car died on exit ramp. Will not start. Oil was about 1.5 qts low. Filled it up, but still won't start. Is there some automatic shut...


Only 1.5 qts low would not shut the engine off. It sounds like your oil pressure sending unit needs to be replaced. If the Oil pressure sending unit reads less then 8 psi or thinks there is less then 8 psi the ECM will shut the engine off. It's a simple fix and the sending unit is on the drivers side behind the distributor on the engine block. You can pick one up from Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the unit. As long as there was no bad noises coming from the engine when it shut down, it should be a simple fix. If there was any bad noises coming from the engine, then your oil pump may have gone bad and will need to be replaced and hope nothing else has failed or have gotten damaged due to lack of oil pressure. Good luck and keep me posted.

I have a 1990 740. Thye oil light stays on and the oil is fuul. Possible solution please.


if the oil light is on and you have the pan full with oil it's a faulty oil sending unit provided that there is adequate pressure. make sure you check the validity of oil flow by just removing the oil fill cap on the valve covers while the engine is running you should notice some oil flow. if there is your oil sending unit is bad if there is not your oil pump is no good. please rate.
