If you are full of oil, this could be as easy as an oil pressure sending unit, which you may see near the oil filter.

It could be an oil pump going bad, and you will be looking at a mechanic shop at that point.

I would check the connection of the oil pressure sending unit to make sure it's plugged in properly.

People have told me the pressure quit working after an oil change, and I found that in most cases, whoever changed the oil damaged that sensor.

    I had my oil changed about 1500 miles ago and no one has been under the hood since. Is it bad to drive it then?

    if its just the pressure sending unit, it's safe to drive, but if it's the oil pump causing the no pressure situation, do NOT drive it.

    So i hear no problems in it. And it runs just fine. I was going to get a pressure gauge to test it tomorrow. Will that be able to tell me if i need a pressure sending unit?

    if you can test the pressure, and it's normal, then yes, you just need a new sending unit.

Hook up a mechanical test gage to the oil pressure port where the oil pressure sender goes and verify the oil pressure is at least 20-30 pounds at idle engine hot. If the oil pressure checks ok on the test replace the oil pressure sender. You should be able to borrow this gage from Autozone or O'reilly auto parts with a deposit and a credit card.

I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

2004 GMC Sierra High Oil Pressure


if it is electrical oil pressure sensor I would start there. The best way to see if you have a major problem is to use a mechanical oil pressure tester. Take off the oil pressure sensor and put the mechanical tester on. The tester should come with a Gage. If it comes within your trucks oil pressure range than all is fine and replace the sending unit and see if that don't help your problem.If the tester runs high then the oil pump is bad or your cam-bearings could be the problem. But with cam-bearings you would usually get a low reading.
