good evening and welcome to fixya
sounds like you might have an issue with your oil pump losing pressure. if there are no rattles knock or clangs and the engine is not burning oil, make sure to check the dipstick for signs of a glittery metal substance that could be signs also of the engine having issues then the pump is probably your issue. there is a spring inside the pump that you can actually take out and change for a heavier spring that would actually stop this but it is easier to swap in a new oil pump. i do have one question for you though, is this correct an s-10 blazer with a 350 in it? if so has the engine been built at all or is it stock? once you swap the pump go back to running a 10w 40 oil the motor will run better on that and easier, yes your right though the heavier oil does help but if everything is good then it will hender power unless the engine is fairly well built. let me know and i will help you solve your issue. thnak you

your oil sensor comes on at less than ten psi, you may have internal engine damage how many miles on engine, any gum up inside engine, you can try to put on a high pressure high volume melling oil pump to try to help for the time being, but you may need to have it torn and repaired.

chances are your sending unit is not bad. These dashes have had alot of problems with stepper motors failing in the instrument cluster. does it go to zero when key is off? is it erratic? changes where it sits when running and when off? These are all problems within the cluster itself. It is not cheap to take this to the dealer. THey will want to replace the cluster. these clusters can be repaired for half the cost if you know where to go. Not sure yet what the rules are on here but i can repair these for about 325 verses over 600 from dealer and then reproggramming costs! One other note. Chevy has a recall on these! call you local dealer and ask what the criteria is for the recall. You may be able to get it repaired for free if you meet the time frame and mileage requirements.
