Not getting oil pressure when turned on runs rough, oil pressure gauge is pegged high on 99Bonneville SE


I suspect the gauge/sender/ or wiring is bad. Does the gauge peg with the key on, but engine not running? An engine wont run long(maybe 10 min with no oil pressure). suspect gauge has nothing to do with a rough running.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

2005 silverado 4x4 oil pressure gauge goes all the way to the right to 80 and does't move only when key turn to off.


Either you have way to much oil in the truck or the pressure switch is no good.

Oil pressure gauge goes to 80 and stays


Another gauge needs to be connected to the car to check that oil pressure sensor or the gauge itself is not the problem.

If an independent gauge shows the same readings I would suspect a sticking oil pressure relief valve.

Oil pressure gauge is 70 - Is this high?


no its not to high ,some vehicles can have a higher pressure for what ever reason ,If you ever worked on the hot test bed on a vehicle assembly line like i have then you can have identical engines with varying pressure ,anything below 25lbs was rejected but the norm was around 40 to 60 lbs some even reached 80lbs ,so as long as it runs ok then leave well alone and do not worry about it ,check for oil feed to rockers and providing you have oil reaching the rockers then refit rocker cover and leave alone as this engine will last forever with regular oil changes

2005 5.3 vortec top in no oil pres just got truck good moter or bad moter


have to see if the oil pump strainer is clooged...oil ports clogged??? was the motor taken care of...valve covers loaded up with sludge??? pan comes off the rest is to be looked at...if she was run on no oil pressure I sure would be suspect of this motor being in poor condition. Does it run???? Is it knocking?smoking? banging or clunking? if not put a gauge on the oil pressure sending unit hole and see if it really has no oil pressure or perhaps it has a bad sender?
