Question about 1990 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

The dash digital oil pressure display stays at zero when the engine is running, all RPM's. Verified that engine oil pressure is about 45 to 50 lbs at idle and that the oil pressure sender on engine is working (replaced). Removed electrical plug from top of oil pressure sender and oil pressure display goes to 100%. All other dash digital displays, speed, engine temp, tach are working OK.

    Sorry took so long to answer, couldn't figure out how to do it.

    I actually installed two new oil pressure senders. One from AutoZone auto parts store and the other from NAPA auto parts store. No change in problem.

    just because you installed a new one, are you sure the sender is good?

Oil pressure gauge drops to zero when car slows down, sometimes will go up when rpm reaches 2800, otherwise stays at zero, when shut off and turned on again pressure would be normal


Hi assuming the oil filter has not become blocked, it sounds like the oil pump is not working properly. Of course it could be something more simple like a faulty gauge, sender or bad connection. But assuming again that the engine is suffering from oil starvation, I would get it checked quickly before you seize the engine completely. Good luck!

I have been having intermittent problems with my '04 Trailblazer oil pressure gauge. Recently, when I am stopped at a light, or sitting idle, the oil pressure gauge drops to zero. Then, when I get...


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.

The oil pressure lite came on oil is full slow revs cause drop in pressure


The first thing to determine is whether the oil pressure sending unit is bad or the engine actually has low oil pressure. To determine that you can remove the sending unit and adapt a mechanical oil pressure gauge in the hole. You should have a minimum of 20 lbs. pressure at idle and 40 lbs. above 1,000 rpm on a warm engine. If the pressure readings are good, replace the sending unit; if not, you have an internal engine problem.

Possible that the OIL filter is clogged and is reducing the pressure due to this when the engine is idling or in low RPM. So before you run the engine further and make it more damaging , it is worth to have the engine oil / oil filter changed. If there is still no result, check the oil pressure switch. If not the oil pump can be faulty. This needs a technical help and should be consulted.

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

2001 f150 super crew oil light comes on at low rpm goes off when i accelerate"


you must obtain an oil pressure gage you can use a inexpensive type like you would hang under your dash. remove the oil pressure sending unit from the engine, a little oil will leak out when you remove it, no big deal. install the add on gauge and see if the pressure at idle with the engine warmed up is over 20 lbs. if not you probably have bad crankshaft bearing but you would want to see what htings look like inside the oil pan.if the pressure goes up to about 60lbs when running fast. and is very low at idle the engine is probably worn out. if the oil pressure drops when it is running fast you may have a plugged oil screen.i have found paper towels and rags inside of engines.

Low oil pressure after engine warms up in 94 blazer with 4.3


I have a 99 blazer and ever since I have owned it, it reads lower in pressure when idling, but will go up too 40 while driving. This is normal for the vehicle. If the pressure gets real low, and stays low, it means its time for an oil change.

As long as the pressure goes up when you give it gas, it is fine.

Oil pressure drops to zero after warmed up or below 2700 RPM


Check the oil pressure with a test guage, if the finding are the same, the look at your oil filter, pump, pickup, or pressure relief valve.....

High oil pressure


This is a normal occurrence. The oil pressure is directly correlated to engine RPM. your check engine light is related to something else.
