Not getting oil pressure with first start up of day.
I have a 2000 Chevy Tracker with 75,700 miles. When I start it for the first time each day, it sounds as if its not getting oil. After about 30 seconds, the noise stops. I have changed oil every time it is needed on a regular basis. Do you know if this vehicle has issues with oil pumps?
If not, any idea what could be causing the problem? It's a 4 cylinder, 2.0, with 4 wheel drive.
Also, does the whole differential have to come off to to get the oil pan off or will the pan slide down away from the pickup?

Sounds like the oil pump check valve is not holding pressure on the system. It should not bleed down significantly. after 30 seconds the oil pump has regained the necessary pressur eto quiet the engine. This is not a task I would recommend for a DIYer.

Cars are stupid now days. You will have to remove other things to get it out. Some times you can pry and bend some tubes/ brackets to remove them. Sometimes you just have to loosen the bolts/nuts. Sometimes they are really a pain and have to remove everything.
if you have not changed the camshaft position sensor you need to do that sounds exactly like my problem got the new fuel pump and filter in there and it was fine for a month then same thing started happening again, been fine for 7 months since I changed my camshaft position sensor

Turn the key to the on position. Do not start. Pump the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times. This will reset the oil life. Please rate by checking one of the four thumbs ups. Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!

i drive a 2000 chevy suburban, the way i turn off my running lights is i push the dome over head lights button four times and u will hear a ding and that indicates that they have been turned off. I usually wait for the suv to start up then i press it four times to make sure i hear the ding!!
