YOUR OIL PRESSURE SHOULD COME UP QUICKLY AFTER THE ENGINE IS STARTED. IF THE ENGINE IS CLATTERING THE THE PRESSURE IS LOW AND YOU MUST FIND THE CAUSE OR ENGINE DAMAGE WILL RESULT. IF YOU NORMALLY HAVE GOOD OIL PRESSURE CHECK THE PRESSURE SENDING UNIT. IT MAY HAVE GOOEY OIL DEPOSITS PLUGGING THE PASSAGE. OR, IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A MECHANICAL GAGE CONNECT IT TO THE OIL PORT AND GET AN MECHANICAL PRESSURE CHECK.

Me again, my truck when i start it up in the morning oil pressure is good but the 15 min. ride to work pressure drops down to around 5-10, but i dont lose any power still runs strong


5-10 psi at idle with a warm to hot engine is not unusual with a well used engine but is low enough to ring alarm bells if that is the reading at speed. The manufacturer will issue specifications for an oil pressure test but as a general rule the test would be made at around 2000 rpm and the oil pressure should be around the oil pressure relief valve lift-off pressure which commonly is about 40-45 psi but could be higher or slightly lower.

Oil pressure has little relationship with engine power as long as it still has some...

If the oil pressure is low the cause might be simple or it might be complex and expensive, but whichever it turns out to be, rectification should not be delayed even for a day...

Oil Pressure Dropped


The oil pressure sending unit is located at the front of
the engine near the power steering pump.
Hope this helps.

Oil pressure


Could be the oil pump going bad. The oil sensor registers oil pressure, not oil level. If it isn't pumping oil, the light will come on.

2000 GMC Jimmy will not start


The oil presure switch does have some bearing on the problem but my suggestion is to change the coil. I had a the same problem with an astro van. I changed everything that you have described and it fixed the problem just for a little while and then all of a sudden did it again. I changed the coild and the cold start swithch and never had the problem again.
