It could be worn camshaft bearings that is lowering your oil pressure. I had the same situation with my 2000 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl. Changing the oil pressure sending unit did not make a difference. I used a higher viscosity oil and that prolonged the life for almost another year. If you put an oil pressure gauge on it and let it run at a prolonged normal temperature, it will give you a definite answer wheter or not the engine has low oil pressure. The real problem is finding the cause. Camshaft bearings are a likely source. According to the spec book, the I-6 engine had low oil pressure numbers to begin with.

Oil gage drops to 0


You may have a bad oil pressure sending unit. The kit they are talking about, I believe is a rebuild kit, not the entire pump. Usally the kit consists of a couple rotors and seals. You would take the old parts out the oil pump housing, and install the new ones. But you want to make sure that all the clearances are within specs. I'd try the sending unit first.

Cavalier starts but stops immediatly in the morning when it is cold. In the afternoon when it is warm, it start and runs fine. When it won't start in the morning the only light that comes on in the gage...


I would start by pulling the codes. Also the computer is located in the right front wheel well and any damage to the front right fender or missing inner wheel well plastic cover allows moisture and road grime to get on the computer. good luck
