It could possibly be a bad oil pump or low oil level. Best guess is it's the pump.

While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

96 Chevy blazer how do I get out of safe mode ran low on oil now runs an drives but won't let car go fast past 2000rpms


The computing system on your vehicle has no safe mode for running low on oil . The only thing that will happen is the check gauges light will come on.
The oil pressure gauge is an analog device that is located in the IPC. The oil pressure gauge is operated directly by the oil pressure sensor circuit. As the engine oil pressure changes, the resistance of the sensor and the current flow in the oil pressure gauge changes. The current flow in the oil pressure gauge causes the needle to move in order to appropriately display the engine oil pressure. A sensor resistance of 1ohms will display as 0 kPa (0 PSI) and a resistance of 88 ohms will display as 80 kPa (80 PSI ). The IPC also monitors the oil pressure sensor circuit and interprets the current flow in this circuit in order to determine when the engine oil pressure is too low. If the oil pressure is too low, the check gauges tell tale will turn on. The oil pressure sender is located on the left side of the 2.2L. The 4.3L engine, oil pressure sender is located at the top left side, near the distributor/high voltage switch.
Try disconnecting the battery cables an hold them together for ten minutes , reset ECM !

2007 Cadillac srx oil pressure alarm, light going off, why?


If oil level is correct, you could install a mechanical oil pressure gauge to insure you actually have good oil presure. If all is well, change oil pressure sender unit.

LOW OIL PRESSURE WILL CAUSE OIL PRESSURE SWITCH OR SENDING UNIT TO DISABLE FUEL PUMP.CHECK FOR OIL PRESSURE.REMOVE OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT SCREW IN OIL PRESSURE GAUGE TESTER INTO BLOCK WHERE OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT GOES TURN ENGINE OVER CHECK FOR OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 18 PSI @ 2000 RPM.

Replace the oil pressure sending unit its giveing a false reading . The problem is when the engine is cold the oil pressure is low and it takes a little time to build up whem cranking the engine and that sends a signal to the computer PCM /VCM what ever but your 40 to 60 lbs oil pressure is graet its ideal .The unit switches when the oil pressure is high enough to trip the switch inside the sending unit and that is sent to the vehicle control module

The oil light blinks intermittently. Restarting the engine makes it stop . I had an oil change performed 2000 miles ago and it is not low.


have someone put a mechanical gauge in place of the oil pressure sensor and record oil pressure, it should be between 20 and 60 psi, if that's ok, probably the sensor. unless you have means to check the circuit I'ld replace the sensor.

What does a low oil pressure alarm mean


It means the sensor that detects your oil pressure has seen a situation where the oil pressure is too low and engine damage will result. Could be just a bad sensor, but better have it checked with a mechanical gauge to see exactly what the pressure is.

Low oil pressure light comes on and i changed the sensor


does the oil pressure gauge show low oil pressure?is it low oil pressure light? or low oil light? 2 sensors on this vehicle.make sure you get a chevrolet oil sensor,aftermarket sensor do not do well,make sure your using 5w30 or 10w30 wieght oil,if you are putting out over 20 lbs at idle in gear,i see no problem,should go up to 40 or better on accel,if it is low oil pressure and the gauge conferms,possible engine wear

Oil pressure light keeps coming on


Check the oil level is not low, and the oil in use is of suitable grade & quality.
If it only comes on at idle, you may have a faulty oil pressure alarm sensor switch.
Either replace it, or preferably, get the engine oil pressure tested using an independant oil pressure gauge.
If it is verified that the oil pressure is indeed low, you may have to look further for other engine problems, such as worn camshaft/crankshaft bearings.
