Typically there would be a different light that would come on if the oil pressure is too low so that would make me think that they aren't related.  Either way, I would definitely fill the oil level back to the recommended level and take the vehicle to your local auto parts store and have them check the code.  If it is the oil, have them reset the code and just keep and eye on you oil level every week.  If it is not, write down what the code is and get back on here to see what we can do to help you out.  Good luck!

What is causing my 96 Chevy Blazer 4.3 to read low oil pressure at an idle? Oil is full, and check gauge light comes on when the oil pressure gauge shows low.

Could be it's just getting tired, as in worn components.
As long as you're getting adequate pressure at operating RPM it should not be a major concern.
If you're not using 15W 40 I would suggest doing so.
Cheers.

1999 blazer only starts when primed and then wont start after sitting


Black smoke is usually extra fuel, but you say you are priming it to start so that could be why.
Have you checked fuel pump pressure before and after cranking ?

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

Past weekend check engine light comes on, engine sounds and feels fine. However the oil pressure is running slightly slow


Check that the oil level is full.If the oil has been in service for more than 4,000 miles, change it. Replace the oil pressure sending unit. If nothing changes, put a mechanical gauge on the engine and read actual oil pressure. Though "acceptable" low pressure is only 5lbs, I would never accept that as safe. Minimum pressure should be at least 20-25psi and normal running pressure between 35 to 45psi.
How low is "slightly low"?

I have a 1996 chevy blazer replaced the fuel and


No, the fuel pressure valve may be stuck open so that the fuel pressure is too low when you start up, but the pump keeps up after the engine starts...
The fuel pressure valve is draining the fuel back into the fuel tank when the Blazer is parked.

no, this is definatly not your problem. low oil will usually turn on the oil light not the check engine light. your going to have to have a scan tool hooked up to it to pull the trouble code. you can try unhooking the battery for 10 minutes or so... this will clear the memory, but the light will most likely come back on
