Most likely the problem is the oil pressure sending unit or the oil passage to the sending unit is partially plugged, that is unlikely, I would replace the sending unit 1st.

I have a 2003 Chevy 1500hd Silverado and the reduce engine power comes up on dash and I lose all power after I turn off and on a couple of times and it works again whats is the problem and how I fix it....


try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes to reset the complete system. a few different things cause the reduced power to activate, oil pressure, coolant temp, traction control. I use my snap-on MT2500 to locate these types of problems

My oil pressure drops and warning light comes on when I stop or idle, but as soon as I give it gas it goes back up to normal again, I was told it's the sensor or else the engine would kill itself if it...


The proper way to determine what's going on in your engine is to install a temporary (or permanent) mechanical gauge. (yours is electro -mechanical) your oil pressure changes with engine rpm but at idle, it should not drop below 15psi (I don't accept less than 20). The gauge and light is set to come on at a pressure that is just a bit higher than the max low pressure so you have a chance to correct the cause without destroying the engine. (though sometimes even that repair can be expensive).
Since the gauge setup or having someone put a gauge on there costs more than a new sending unit for your current arrangement, I'd suggest you replace the sender and if you see identical readings, then you need to have the oil pan removed and the crankshaft bearings and oil pump looked at.
Doing nothing can cost you an engine.

did you by chance had the oil filter changed because there is a antidrain back valve in the filter,also if the filter is plugging up it will bypass to line pressure.causing lower oil pressure.try the filter first then have oil pressure checked when cold and again when hot.

Car stalls when oil pressure drops...20 minutes to restart


No it is a fail safe. When your oil pressure drops below (on most cars) 30 psi your computer will shut your fuel pump down until you either let it sit for a while and it resets or until oil pressure builds again. Sorry!
