The check gauges light alerts you to the fact that one of the gauges is reading out of the normal zone. From what you have said I assume there is a problem with the oil pressure gauge in that it indicates the oil pressure is low. I suggest you remove the oil pressure sending unit and hook up a test gauge, see what the oil pressure really is. I suspect you just have a defective oil pressure sending unit.

These particular Vortec engines need more fuel pressure to start than run. So being able start it by pouring fuel and being able to drive suggests a pump starting to go bad (loosing pressure), a cloogged filter (causing a restriction), or a fuel pressure regulator going out (letting off too much pressure).

PO172 means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust). I would replace the thermostat first. The computer could be injecting too much fuel because it thinks it never gets to operating temperature. That may keep the light off.

SOURCE: how do I change the oil and filter on my car?

under the vehicle you will see a plastic cover under the engine, remove the 4 13 mm bolts and drop the cover (they give you an access port but its cleaner and easier to just take the cover off) the bolt to drain the oil is also a 13mm on the bottom of the oil pan facing the ground. drain the oil, put the drain plug bolt back in and tighten, don't over tighten! the filter is located up the front of the oil pan on the passenger side, only accessible from the bottom, remove the filter let the oil drain, put some fresh oil on the rubber seal of the new filter and install, make sure to follow the directions on the filter because it will tell you how many turns to put on the filter, overtightening will make it extremely difficult to take off next time! after that, clean up any oil left on the frame and oil pan and install the plastic cover with the 4 13 mm bolts, locate the oil fill cap, remove and refill the engine with the right oil (i believe its 5w30) untill it reads full on the dipstick, put the cap back on and start the engine and let it run for about 10 seconds, shut the engine off and recheck the oil level and fill as necessary. (if you have the 4.2 i think it takes 7 quarts, check your owners manual for the oil type and capacity to be sure) remember to turn the key on with the engine off and pump the gas pedal 3 times to reset the oil life indicator after the oil change is done, hope this helps!

How do I check and replace engine oil sensor.

Knowing how these gauges work , I'd say you have an instrument cluster problem not oil sender unit. 2003 - 2006 GM had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster . If there was a problem with the oil sender the gauge would default to zero .
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.

The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

If you don't know what class 2 serial data communications are ,google it. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

Cylinder #1 misfire. If the engine is running fine the code will reset on it's own after 40 cycles of the ignition key. If the engine is running poorly it could be due to bad spark plug or coil pack.

Oil gage buries all the way past high. After driving with it like that for a while, the truck engine konks out and will not start. Last time we waited on the side of road for 40 minutes and then it started...

Do you believe oil gage? Oil psi sensor can go bad. If PSI correct then is PCV valve clear?
I'm more inclined to think you have some kind of electrical problem, false gauge, ignition quits or fuel delivery problem. Extreme high oil PSI would blow out your engine seals, leaking oil everywhere. When you get high oil psi, does removing oil cap make it drop? Do you have good clean oil and filter?
When it quits do you have spark, fuel to delivery system? (throttle body or fuel inj) High oil psi shouldn't make truck hard to start. Baffling.

What is the check gauges light

CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance
