2004 Chevy S10 4x4 stalling at idle. Drove 3 hours last night, no prob, but this morning this. RPMs 200-800, oil pressure gauge flutters, lights dim with the idle, then stalls. Starts right back up.


can be a multiple of reasons -will start with check for fuel pressure -possible fuel pump/fuel filter ---in need of a tune up ---egr valve --cat converter--battery - these components sometimes dont set off a check engine code but if you did or do have a code have it scanned most auto stores offer this service for free

Why is my oil pressure dropping?


first suggestion is to check the oil level in the sump as this indicates that on start up there is sufficient oil but when the oil galleys are full the pump is sucking air and the pressure drops to zero. The level has to be on the top most fill mark.

Where is the oil pressure sensor lacted on a 1996 s10 2.2 Pickup


How much below 30 is it dropping? Oil pressure when in DRIVE at idle on a hot engine, is NORMAL at around 18 to 20 Psi. The warning lamp does not come on until around 7 Psi.

With that said, the oil pressure switch (for the light) is located on the lower left front of the engine. The fuel pump oil pressure switch and sender (for the gauge and fuel pump operation) is on the lower right front of the engine.

I have a 92 manusl single cab chevy s10. I was going to work the other day and saw my oil pressure had dropped a lot. by the time I got to work which is not even a mile away I had no oil.


First mistake was not stopping and checking it. But, can't do anything about that now. Re-fill the oil to the proper level and once started, look everything over for leaks. If you lost most of the engine oil, chances are it won't be too difficult to find the problem unless you have a small leak and just haven't done any weekly routine checks to maintain proper fluid levels. (bet you will now!!)
Chevy engines are pretty tough...hopefully you haven't done any serious damage.
good luck

1991 chevy S10 blazer fluctuating oil pressure


I assume from the year it has high mileage. With mileage comes wear in these engine's bearings allowing oil pressure to drop because of the excess clearance between cam and bearings, also the crank and bearings. When the engine is hot and idling the oil is thinner and goes by the bearings quicker. If you have good oil pressure while driving, I'd leave it alone, maybe use a thicker oil or some lucas additive. My 89 does the same thing sometimes in the summer, but don't remember it doing it this summer. I use Mobil-1 and an AC Delco filter.

if your pressure is too low this fix is quite expensive and not worth for older cars, so the first thing you should try to keep it running is to use THICKER OIL (W20-50 or such), + oil stabilizier (any good oil additive). I tried it in my Jeep,- helped right away.. Good luck

I'd be replacing oil sender. GM have used oil pressure switch as a safety shut-off to fuel pump, when oil pressure drops off, as it would in a collision, due to engine stall.
