SOURCE: 1995 buick lesabre limited, oil gauge issue

Could be two things, your oil pump pick tube is clog, oil pan would have to be drop to check, or your camshaft bearing worn causing low oil pressure,I would not say piston rod bearing or main bearing, cause there's no knock noise. You will have better oil pressure when cold due to oil much thicker. so I would forget about a bad oil pump.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick Park Avenue when

These sending units are known to fail, a replacement is about $25. I had a Bonneville that did the same thing. The only real way to test it is to remove the electronic sending unit and test it with a manual gauge. In my case I had 40 psi of oil pressure with the manual gauge but the dash would read 5-10psi.

I have a 1976 buick regal 350 engine and the oil light comes on when the engine gets hot and it is at an idle. when you give it gas the light goes out. could this be the oil sending unit and if so where is...


it might be the sending unit, is it a buick 350 or a chevy. 350? if a buick engine the sinding unit should be on the side of the timing cover if a chevy 350 next to the dist.

remove the oil sinding unit and install a manuel gauge and see just what the oil pressure is if below 10 psi at hot idle replace the bearings and oil pump in the engine. if this is a chevy 350 make sure you replace the camshaft bearings this is were we use to see the gratest oil pressure loss.

Severe oil leak just above the oil filter on some kind of part that has wires coming out of it


Sounds like either the oil pressure switch or sending unit. If you have a oil light on the dash it is a switch. If you have an oil pressure gauge on the dash it is a sending unit. Either way a new one should fix the problem.

Most of them will require a socket just for oil pressure switches/sending units. they are deep and the insides are milled out more than a traditional socket in order to accommodate the body of the sensor. Sometimes there is enough room to use a wrench to remove the sensor as well.

I know nothing of a sensor in the oil pan. What you need to check is the oil pressure sending unit. The unit will look like this. 2c49e3a.png
Check the connection at the sensor to make sure it is secure before replacing. If you find it is leaking it for sure needs replacing. The unit will be located in a location like this on which is a 1995 Buick. 2a08cb5.png

1995 buick century-oil light came on hour after oil change


Step 1-- replace the sending unit again. Step 2--if step 1 does not cure the problem--believe the light--have the oil pressure checked with a real pressure gauge temporarily installed inplace of the sending unit. Try to not run the engine at all until this is resolved. Usually a 1 min. run at idel with no oil pressure will not damage the engine. 5 min of idle will ruin it. 1 minute of highway speed 50 MPH cruise will destroy the bearings.
