It sounds like the oil pressure switch has failed. It is only an on/off switch that trips at about 15 - 17 PSI, the reading displayed on the dash is created by the computer based on the pressure switch being closed and the engine RPM.

Oil pressure is normal until it reaches200 degrees then oil presure drops to 10 pounds at an idle but give it gas and it goes up when its first started oil pressure is at 40 pounds until it reaches 200...


Oil pressure drop after reaching operating temp is normally caused by worn main bearings (depending on mileage).Worn bearings will allow pressure drop at idle and increase when accelerated above idle.

Oil pressure is not constant, while idiling the pressure is less than when accelerating. Usually when the oil pressure gauge fluctuates it is a sign of low oil level.

Oil pressure drops once it gets warm


Sorry to say it sounds like the motor is gone. Higher oil pressure when the oil is cold is normal. But, when the engine gets to operating temp and the pressure bottoms out and the engine knocks you have big problems. If the mileage is very high (150,000) or more your bearings are so worn that the oil can't fill the void between the surfaces and thus the low oil pressure.
