To change your oil pressure gauge to digital, you will need an oil pressure gauge kit (gauge, harnesses, pressure sensor LED version) and the proper tools to remove the old gauge and harness and just replace it with the digital version. It's really simple but time consuming.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: high oil pressure in my humer h2

If you had read the Owners Manual, the H2's Oil specification is 5w30 and not 10w30. I only know this because I own one. Before doing so please resort to owners manual to verify the oil type. This is what I would do but don't quote me. I am no H2 professional mechanic. I am very sure H2's technical problem may originate from the oil sensor. in turn it may affect the spark plugs (only) and oil filter. By changing out the oil, oil filter, spark plugs and oil sensor it should return to normal.

SOURCE: low oil pressure 93 GMC P/U w/350 motor w/205,000 miles gauge

While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Engine malfunction light came on with low oil pressure when i started car. engine light stayed on. do i just need an oil change


you need to have the oil pressure checked by using a mechanical oil pressure gauge
that will determine if it is a pump problem or an oil gauge sender unit
changing the oil will not fix the problem
you should be doing oil and filter changes every 10,000 miles and then that oil change suggestion would not figure in the problem
your problem is either mechanical or electrical but you need to determine which before you damage the engine

If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

Low oil pressure


If the engine is not making any noise.It is probably the oil sending unit that is defective.If you want to be sure you will have to install a pressure gauge and check the pressure when the vehicle is at normal operating temperature.If it is above 10 psi then replace the sending unit.It is located on the back of the motor on the block by the left cylinder head.You might need a special socket for it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Oil pressure gauge shows low / high / middle changed sensor did


Hello mb4494: My name is Roger and I will help you. If by changing the oil pressure sending unit the problem did not change. I would perform a oil pressure test. This is done by removing the oil pressure sensor and inserting a oil pressure gauge. This can be done by yourself or by a repair shop. This needs to be done on a cold engine. Start the engine and observe the oil pressure cold.as the engine warms up observe the pressure. The pressure will drop off as the engine warms up.Should the oil pressure drop below 10 to 12 PSI. then you have internal engine trouble. More then likely a bearing problem. Try dropping the truck into gear and see what the pressure drops off to. Again if the pressure drops below 10 to 12 PSI. you have a problem. I would also check to make sure you have the correct oil switch. a truck with a oil light uses a oil pressure switch. with a gauge you would use a oil pressure sending unit. Sorry for the long reply but want to make sure you check the pressure correctly. Please rate the quality of the answer as this is how we know the answer was correct. Thank You for using Fix Ya.

Oil pressure on a 2004 5.3 liter silverado at idle is around 20


The pressure to be most concerned with is the reading in gear at idle with engine warmed up...Low end really should not be below 20. If pressure wanders, change the sending unit and check actual pressure with a mechanical gauge if necessary. The age and quality of your oil, as well as temperature all play a part in pressure, as well as internal wear from time & miles of use. If pressure changes with rpm, that is normal. 40psi is good while driving.
need more info just ask.

If you are talking about the change oil message on your cluster. You need to press step until oil change mileage appears on screen and then just press reset.

If you are inquiring about the oil pressure swith on the engine there is no reset procedure. If you just replaced the oil pressure switch and still have no oil pressure, you are going to have to use a manual oil pressure gauge to make sure that you have engine oil pressure. If you have oil pressure with the manual guage there is a problem with the wiring or engine computer.
