Question about Cars & Trucks
I have low oil pressure, I have flushed engine, and replaced oil and filter. This made a marginal improvement.Oil pressure drops as engine revs increase. Is this a worn oil pump problem? what is involved in replacing it? where can I find manual for this job? Thanks to all who can help.

check for coolant in the oil. remove the oil fill cap and look for a white milky substance. most likely engine damage has already occured because to have that low if oil pressure there is too much "clearance" between the bearings and the components they work with-(crankshaft,camshaft,connectiong rods). that vehicle came with dexacool coolant and it would shorten the life of the intake gaskets. they then would leak into the engine ruining the bearings over time. the skip can happen from lifters hydrolocked with the oil/coolant solution. take it to a reputable mechanic for an analysis......Good luck.......Scott

CHECK THE OIL PUMP SUMP TUBE O-RING. THEY COLLAPSE CAUSING THE OIL PUMP TO PULL AIR INSTEAD OF OIL. TO VERIFY OVER FILL ENGINE OIL AND CHECK ENGINE OIL PRESSURE. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM ON ALL NEWER GM V-8 ENGINES : 4.8 5.3 5.7 6.0
