You got it, Common for the plastic top where the wire leads connect to crack. This will cause the oil to leak and at worst, what you have indicated happening on your Blazer. Note; when installing the new sensor, do not use any Teflon tape on the threads. The sensor is tapered and works best to have a good ground, so just tighten it enough to keep the oil from leaking. Good luck friend and make sure you pick up the right oil sending unit sensor. One is for just a light to activate and the other is the one you need to be able to give you a oil pressure reading. Best to go at a Dealer for this part with your VIN number.

Testimonial: "thanks alot i am very thankful for your help"
Check the oil filter housing and the cooler lines at the housing. The oil filter housing gaskets are good for no more than 15k to 30k miles if your lucky. The lines at the housing are easy to strip out when you reinstall them so take your time if you do it yourself an once you are finished and ready to start the truck, let it run for about 15 minutes and constantly check the area for leaks prior to road testing the vehicle.

SOURCE: Low oil pressure
Sorry to say, but oil sending unit has nothing to do with oil pressure. Best case scenario for low oil pressure would be you need an oil and filter change. Better case scenario would be you need to drop oil pan and clean screen on bottom of the oil pump. Worse case scenario would be due to excessive miles on engine which causes wear on compression rings and/or crank shaft bearings where oil pressure originates from. It might be good to have a compression test done on all cylinders by a certified mechanic or at least someone who knows what they're doing. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Good luck! over4dy

It is the stepper motor that drives the gauge, this a common failure on the instrument cluster. There are vendors on E-bay that service instrument clusters if you are willing and capable of removing the cluster from the vehicle.
