Possible dsmsge from driving weeks with high oil pressure? btw 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali


No damage will occur. Have you checked the oil pressure with a manual test gage? If not do that and please understand GM oil pressure gages are prone to reading high pressure when the sender is defective.

91plymoth voyeger the check gages light goes on and the oil preser gage gose down at a stop light only when in drive or revers


Hello Johnny.
At idle in gear is when your engine is running at it's slowest. The oil pump is also running slower.
As engine parts wear the oil escapes past these wear points reducing the available amount of oil flow.
This in turn reduces the oil pressure.
It is possible that the oil pressure sending switch is defective as well. But you should get the oil pressure tested on a manual gauge to verify. This is done by unthreading the oil pressure switch and installing a manual oil pressure tester with an accurate readout.
If you are hearing ticking noises the upper moving parts in the engine may not be getting proper oil pressure.

I hope your repair is an easy one.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance
