SOURCE: oil pressure gauge stays at top, about 80 psi, is this normal

80 is on the high side for those... possibly a sending unit issue

Oil Pressure Sensor Testing

  1. Check the oil level and correct as necessary. Turn the ignition switch on, but do not start the engine.
  2. Disconnect the sensor lead at the sensor. The gauge should read full scale.
  3. Ground the connector. The gauge should read at the bottom of the scale.
  4. If the gauge functions properly, replace the sensor.

4.8L, 5.3L & 6.0L Engines
  1. If necessary, remove the engine sight shield.
  2. Disconnect the oil pressure sensor electrical connector.
  3. Using J 41712 or equivalent, remove the oil pressure sensor.

Using J 41712 or equivalent, remove the oil pressure sensor.

To install:
  1. Apply sealant to the threads of the oil pressure sensor.
  2. Using J 41712 or equivalent, install the oil pressure sensor.
    • Tighten the oil pressure sensor to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
  3. Connect the oil pressure sensor electrical connector.
  4. If necessary, install the engine sight shield.

96 Chevy blazer how do I get out of safe mode ran low on oil now runs an drives but won't let car go fast past 2000rpms


The computing system on your vehicle has no safe mode for running low on oil . The only thing that will happen is the check gauges light will come on.
The oil pressure gauge is an analog device that is located in the IPC. The oil pressure gauge is operated directly by the oil pressure sensor circuit. As the engine oil pressure changes, the resistance of the sensor and the current flow in the oil pressure gauge changes. The current flow in the oil pressure gauge causes the needle to move in order to appropriately display the engine oil pressure. A sensor resistance of 1ohms will display as 0 kPa (0 PSI) and a resistance of 88 ohms will display as 80 kPa (80 PSI ). The IPC also monitors the oil pressure sensor circuit and interprets the current flow in this circuit in order to determine when the engine oil pressure is too low. If the oil pressure is too low, the check gauges tell tale will turn on. The oil pressure sender is located on the left side of the 2.2L. The 4.3L engine, oil pressure sender is located at the top left side, near the distributor/high voltage switch.
Try disconnecting the battery cables an hold them together for ten minutes , reset ECM !

My oil gauge for my 2006 Chevy silverado v8, 2wd does not work. It reads 0 pressure and stays until at a stop and radically jumps.


Sounds like you need to replace the oil pressure sending unit. Should be located on the engine down by the oil filter.

1996 chevy 5.0 express van starts for about 10 sec. then dies, fuel psi starts at 60 then drops to 42 psi then dies, im thinking a pressure regulator if so where is it located.


Hi, try pulling the connector off your oil pressure switch and using a short jumper wire to connect the terminals inside. The switch is on top of the engine behind the distributor. If this works to keep the pressure up, replace the oil pressure switch. You may notice your oil pressure gauge spiking and/or the engine light may illuminate. This is normal with the jumper wire installed. Please let me know if this doesn't work or you have any questions.

Oil pressure gauge goes to near zero and check gauges light comes on a 1997 chevy blazer


Check pressure with an external pressure gauge. Proceed from the results of that test.

Oil pressure gauge goes up when car started, but then down to 0


u Have a problem with the oil sending unit. The sensor is located beack right side of the engine block. Take out the switch and make sure u have good oil PSI. Should be 6 psi at idle and around 50 at 4000 RPM. If the presure is ok replace the switch they are very cheap about 20 bucks. Please rate.

Guages on 87 olds cutlass are not working properly. fuel does not work, temperature works but goes strainght to hot as soon as the car warms up, amp gueage discharging oil pressure not working


Hi, you will have to replace all sending units for these gauges in order to restore them to there original state. i will list the sending units and there respective locations below.

1. Fuel gauge sending unit- you will need to replace the fuel sending unit on your Olds. its located inside the actual fuel tank. there's a floater attached to this Assembly and , its broken. you will have to replace the entire assembly. you will also have to drop the fuel tank to access it as well.

2. Temp guage-- normally when this guage starts to malfunction, its because of a bad coolant temperature sensor. Inspect the sensor's wires and connections. ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor problems are often caused by faulty wiring or loose or corroded connections rather than the failure of the sensor itself. If the wires or connections are bad, replace them. If you think the sensor is defective, it should be tested.

This sensor is located Under hood, center, upper engine area, front of carburetor, passenger side of water outlet, mounted in intake manifold.

3. Amp gauge --- OK, this can be caused by a bad voltage regulator. i would also trace every single wire from the amp gauge to the sensor and regulator. check for corroded connectors and contact clips. replace any wire that may seem worn.

4. Oil pressure gauge-- This gauge will malfunction if the Oil pressure switch is faulty or not working. This is an Information relay unit for the indicator light or gauge on instrument panel. It contains a diaphragm that responds to changes in oil pressure. When the oil level is over a pre-set limit, the diaphragm opens the switch, turning off the light. When level is below the pre-set limit, the dash light comes on. In later model cars, if the oil pressure drops, the switch turns off the fuel pump, to stop the engine and limit damage to internal parts. Oil pressure switches can be grouped into two categories, units for electrical gauges and for mechanical gauges. If this switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Once replaced, it will fix the dead oil gauge.

This device is located Under the hood, passenger side, front engine area, mounted rear of water pump. If the wires are worn or there is an oil leak near the switch location, replace it.

Inspecting all the above areas and replacing parts if needed, will fix your gauge issues.

Please rate and god bless:)

1997 Jeep Wrangler oil pressure gauge not working


The gage is working because it is coming on sometimes. The oil pressure sending unit on the engine is starting to go. I would replace the oil pressure switch on the engine first.
