SOURCE: Low Oil pressure light in idle at stop

Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.

Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.

1. Check the level you filled the coolant to...If you overfilled it this will happen. 2.  Did you add the correctly diluted antifreeze? 3. Check to be sure the radiator is unobstructed

Make sure you have gotten all the air out of the system by running the car with the cap off for a bit.. also make sure the radiator overflow if at proper level.. next look at your radiator and see if it is plugged up with trash bugs what ever this will slow your cooling big time.. also look between your radiator and your air condition condensor and make sure its clean also there can be trash in there causing it to heat .. also check belts make sure they are tight.. really sounds like you started with air in system and system might be air locked needing to run a bit with cap off when cool. dont take cap off when hot ... make sure over flow is full also... thanks and holler if you need more.

1991 chevy S10 blazer fluctuating oil pressure


I assume from the year it has high mileage. With mileage comes wear in these engine's bearings allowing oil pressure to drop because of the excess clearance between cam and bearings, also the crank and bearings. When the engine is hot and idling the oil is thinner and goes by the bearings quicker. If you have good oil pressure while driving, I'd leave it alone, maybe use a thicker oil or some lucas additive. My 89 does the same thing sometimes in the summer, but don't remember it doing it this summer. I use Mobil-1 and an AC Delco filter.

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

2001 Chevy Blazer has check engine light on and hard to start.


Try IAC the idle air control because its what compensates a rich or lean mixture. There is another sensor called ECT sensor which reads off the tempature of the coolant
