First thing I'd do is hook -up an external gauge at sender spot & confirm if pressure there or not, or is the engine making sounds like it's obviously not getting any oil pressure?

What causes oil pressure to drop when sitting at red light


Three things, low on oil, low on pressure, bad sending unit. First one is easy, do you have enough oil in engine. Second, is the oil pump functioning properly. Third, is the pressure sending unit working properly. I recommend changing oil first if still occurs, replace sending unit, then if it still happens, i would have the pressure tested with a mechanical gauge. If pressure ok then drop oil pan and check screen. Screen clear replace pump unless there is alot of metal in pan then rebuild motor

1995 Ford Econoline 150 with 302 engine. Oil pressure indicator starting dropping when idle speed went down, Had a new oil pump and sending unit replaced, still does the same thing. Has 190K on it, now as...


When you had the pump replaced did anyone look at the rod and main bearings? 99% of all low oil pressure problems I've seen has been directly related to bearing wear, not a bad oil pump.
Replacing the pump will give you slightly better pressure temporarily but that won't last very long.
Verify the actual oil pressure using an external mechanical gauge. If it's low (likely it is) go back into the oil pan and use plasti-gage on the bearings to measure clearances.
In reality though, in an engine with that many miles, it's best to either completely rebuild or replace it though.

302 ci. 5.0 ltr . oil pump replacement


Why do you want to replace the oil pump? I am asking this question for good reason. Engines that have worn bearings will have low oil pressure, and replacing the pump will not solve this problem. If you are replacing the pump because of low pressure, then you really need to consider correcting the cause of the low pressure. To replace the pump, you need to remove the oil pan from the bottom of the engine, which will likely involve raising the engine. Once the oil pan is off, you can readily remove and replace the oil pump.

First we would need to know when this occurs. Asuming the oil level is at the full mark!. If the pressure goes up during acceleration and down at idle when engine is fully warmed up, then this is normal. An engine requires 10 psi of oil pressure per 1,000 rpm ( ex. 20 psi at 2,000 rpm, 25 psi at 2,500 rpm, and so on ) . If the gauge is moving back and forth erratically at idle , i would say the gauge is bad. If it drops to 0 while accelerating I would say your oil pump is bad. If from time to time it seems to work and other times it seems not to work, I would say the oil pressure sending unit for the gauge is bad. If the pump failed you would start to here a Knocking noise from the engine in a short period of time. Use the above scenario's to narrow down what it may be.

1995 4.9 ltr 78k mi. When car is stopped for red


Probably an oil pump, will it still do this if you rev the engine a little while stopped? If not then you have an oil pump that could be failing or hopefully it is the pressure sensor that is off. either way don't chance it

Just replaced a 1998 catera engine now have no oil pressure was told i had to "prime the pump" how do i prime the oil pump?


The best way to prime the pump hoping that you havent ran the engine to long without oil pressure
is to remove the oil gauge switch ORoil light switch on the engine and get a connector with the correct thread to screw into the block and fit a hose to it and to a 1/2 ltr oil can pump oil in as hard as poss and then turn engine over IN REVERSE(Backwards) 3 times and then (pumping every time) refitswitch and start it should be ok....

1995 GMC Sierra z71 oil pressure dropped- need advice on this


The oil pump is in the oil pan and needs to be dropped and being a 4WD you also need to drop the front axle pumpkin to remove the oil pan and replace all the gasket needed. Start with the easy and replace the oil pressure sending unit, it's on the back of the engine to the passenger side of the distributor. You can go to Auto Zone and pick up a new Oil sending unit, just make sure your get the right one, "Sending Unit" Looks the same are the oil pressure sensor but the unit reads the pressure, the other just signal a light to go on and off. It's an easy fix like replacing a spark plug.

3.8 ltr pontiac - gas in oil,no detectable vacuum leaks, runs smo


yes, the diaphragm in the fuel pump has a small hole allowing fuel to seep into the crankcase, thus diluting the fuel and giving you low oil pressure...Change the pump and change the oil and filter.
