Not with the right tools by the Oil Pressure Sending unit (AKA OPS) tool that will fit in there you may have to contort your body a little.

Oilpressure gauge indicates low to almost no oil pressure


You may want to hook up an external oil pressure gauge
to the engine to ease your mind. This would give you a regular number of the pressure. Compare it to the factory gauge in the dash. Those in dash gauges were not all that precise. If the engine is not having bearing noise I can see nothing to worry about.

Gauge problems with fuel and oil


It is just as likely that the fuel level sending unit in the tank is bad as it is that the fuel guage in the dash is bad. The guage is MUCH easier and cheaper to change; try that first.

After about 2 hrs of driving my oil guage on my 2003 sierra goes down to almost 0. I stop and shut the truck off for about 5 min. and the guaga goes back to normal for about 1 hour then the same problem...


A failing oil pressure sensor may be to blame, need to verify the pressure is actually falling to zero with a mechanical gauge. If the pressure on the mechanical gauge does not drop to zero under the same conditions then suspect the pressure sensor. If it is then
I would suspect the oil pump pick up screen is becoming clogged with debris. As mileage accumulates sludge can accumulate in the engine, as bits of it come loose they settle in the oil pan. Extended driving allows it to collect in the pick up screen until it is restricted, upon shutting the engine down the particles drift back to the bottom of the pan. There is also a more remote possiblilty of the bypass valve in the oil pump itself being the culprit, but I think the chance is fairly remote.
Good hunting
