Oil pressure gauge reading zero


check the oil pressure first, it should read around 10 to 14 psi. If pressure is inside the range then your pressure sensor is bad. If lower or reads 0 psi your got a engine problem, further diagnosis needed. Good luck.

Normal oil pressure at operating temperature should be around 40 lbs, 30 at an idle. Either you have a bad oil pressure sending unit or you actually have low oil pressure that indicates a serious engine problem.

Hi guys my 2001 ls1 corvette has a problem with the oil pressure gauge it fluxuates from low to high tripping the service engine warning and the red light the car has a good level of oil and all other...


This does sound like the oil pressure sending unit is going bad. Had an 02 Vette with the same issue.

The location of the sending unit is behind the intake manifold. You will unfortunately have to remove the manifold in order to replace the unit, but this is easy enough as the intake manifold is as simple as they get on the LS1 engine.

Hope this helped!

My 2001 Chevy Suburban is making a loud ticking noise intermittently, it mostly happens at stop lights, but most especially when I start it in the morning. The oil pressure light and gauge show low to zero...


If the oil light and the gauge is showing low to zero pressure then you need to have the pressure checked by someone with a mechanical gauge to varify the pressure is low. Is the oil level at the full mark? I have seen where the oil pickup tube o ring gets hard over time and cracks which can allow the oil pump to draw in air and cause low oil pressure. If you run the engine with very low oil pressure for any length of time there is a chance that the engine may need to be replaced due to lack of lubrication. The chevrolet dealerships still provide very good service. Hope this helps.

Dic warning "engine Oil Low - Check Level" but the oil on dipstick indicates full - also oil pressure indicates normal????


you may have a sensor bad in the crankcase that detects oil level.
I would disregard as long as the oil is changed regularly, and you have no pressure problems and the level on the dipstick is within the cross hatches or between the low and high range.

OIl pressure can drop to zero after car warms wup.


Check oil level.
First verify the pressure is dropping and not some other problem.
You will need to connect a pressure gauge to the engine to read the true pressure.
If the pressure reads good then the sending unit is bad.
You should have new oil and filter. A bad filter can cause pressure drop.
