Assuming everything is ok with the pressure sensor and wiring, its possible you dropped the connector rod between the distributor and the oil pump down into the oil pan.

Why won't 89 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.7 STILL not start. New battery,coil,spark plugs,wires,inline filter,distributor,cap,rotor,fuel pump,starter relay.


What's missing ? Fuel ,spark , compression ? How many miles on the vehicle ? Does it have spark , pull a plug wire while cranking an hold it near a good ground . Put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle , is there fuel pressure ? Do a compression test , 150 psi . engine mechanical problem . timing chain .

Is needle pointing down a fuel pump problem?


If you thumped on your fuel gauge and it went back up after pointing on 0 it sounds like a bad fuel gauge problem. But, that would not make it die unless you have a short in the electric system causing it to go faulty. How does it idle in park? Any hesitation on acceleration?

I have a 2006 chevy silverado 5.3L..When in idle oil pressure gauge goes to 80 and when i accelerate ail pressure goes to zero ...is it the oil sending unit?


It could be the sending unit. If the truck is low on oil it will cause something similar. Be sure the oil level is topped up. The only way to be sure it so measure the actual oil pressure at the engine with a proper gauge..

2007 Chevy Silverado oil pressure gauge fluxuating, setting off computer on dash reading "engine oil low" also warning bell sounds. Thanks!


If you are lucky , replacing the oil pressure sender unit will solve the problem. Your truck might have perfectly good oil pressure , but a bad sensor. OR you might actually have low oil pressure , which is not good , and will be expensive to fix. Good luck.

How do you replace an oil pump for a 93 chevy


A bad oil pump will show low oil pressure and your lifters will start chattering. It is rare that ann oil pump failsyet possible.The oil pump is in the oil pan and will require the pan to come down. The pan can be remove in frame, you just have to turn the crank by hand to get the crank journal out of the way at a certain point. Yhe oil pump is the unit the pick up tube and screen are attached and it comes down by removing two bolts.The pick up tube is the hard part. Last I kmew they are pressed in and hard to separate from the pump, but it can be done. Be careful not to rotate the tube or it will be loose on install, not good.. If you have a oropane torch heat up the pump, don't over heat. Just enough fotr the tube to dlip out. Do not forget to put the distributor drive rod back in if it came out wiyh the pump. Pull the distributor so you don't fight thre drive slot alignment. Note rotor position and dirtibutor body position. Mark if necessary the orientation for assembly. Good Luck. Suggestion. Have the oil pressure ck'd and verified befor siassemblin. Put a gauge in place of sending uni for a direct reading. It's a lot of work to pull the pump. Good Luck, -Ned-

Changed oil pressure switch,still no oil pressure


The fuel pump on that model runs through the oil pressure switch so that if the truck looses oil pressure,It kills power to the fuel pump to prevent engine damage.you need to find the cause of the low oil pressure reading(possibly a bad oil switch).That would be the cheapest place to start,or have it checked with a mechanical gauge.Good luck,
