More than likely (and we will hope) it is the oil sending unit. In comparison it is a very cheap and quick fix to replacing the oil pump. Auto Zone has a pretty good componet location section that has tips for replacement if you cant find the sending unit or the oil pump. Try that first it may save you a lot of work.

SOURCE: 1997 Buick Lesabre Water Pump problem

THE POWER STEERING PUMP PULLEY --- ARRGGH...Not a problem. The power steering pump is held by two bolts. Use a socket and remove the top bolt and loosen the bottom bolt. Be careful not to completely remove the bottom bolt. The PS pump will loosen up enough so that you can push it towards the firewall and you will JUST have enough room to remove the waterpump bolts. Its tight but it will squeeze out.

What would cause oil pressure to drop to 0 after replacing oil pressure sensor on 2000 Buick la sabre

Why did you need to change it? Did you have low pressure?
Is the sensor telling the truth? You may have to get a mechanic to rig up a manual gauge to your oil system to ascertain the actual pressure by diagnosis. Is the sensor right for your engine?
Tell us a bit more of the history of your problem.

1995 buick lesabre limited, oil gauge issue

Could be two things, your oil pump pick tube is clog, oil pan would have to be drop to check, or your camshaft bearing worn causing low oil pressure,I would not say piston rod bearing or main bearing, cause there's no knock noise. You will have better oil pressure when cold due to oil much thicker. so I would forget about a bad oil pump.

OIl pressure can drop to zero after car warms wup.

Check oil level.
First verify the pressure is dropping and not some other problem.
You will need to connect a pressure gauge to the engine to read the true pressure.
If the pressure reads good then the sending unit is bad.
You should have new oil and filter. A bad filter can cause pressure drop.

Oil Pressure Gauge

It's not uncommon for a new part to be defective. While the car is running it should be in the middle. If you have the ignition on without the motor running it should be at zero. If it isn't, you definitely have a problem. There is a solder joint that in the guage cluster that will losen up over time causing incorrect readings on the gauges. Also check out the wiring going to the sensor for frays. This can ground out the sensor giving inaccurate readings.

Car shuts down while driving

It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.
