Question about Chevrolet Colorado
Low oil pressure com on after driving a while when the rpm is below 1000. it on and off. where is the unit, its 05 colorado 2.8 ltr
You should check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. If that gauge also reads low you probably have a major engine problem. If the pressure is normal on the mechanical gauge you have a problem with the electric gauge. Probably the sender, dash unit or wiring.

Most likely the oil pressure switch may be damaged. This is a simple procedure. Change and observe the results

per the Haynes manual for the 95-05 Dodge Stratus on the 2.0L & 2.4L DOHC 4 cyl engines, the oil pressure sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.4L SOHC 4 cyl engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.5L & 3.0L V6 engines, the sending unit is located on the oil filter housing, on the front side of the block. On 2.7L V6 engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. To access it, remove the heat shield.
