The cheapest thing to try would be replace the oil pressure sending unit. Probably no more than $10.

The check gages light comes on and off while driving, at the same time, the oil pressure gage drops and then bounces back up after hitting zero


There a couple of possibilities; you could have an intermittent oil pressure switch or an intermittent stepper motor in the instrument cluster. The stepper motor drives the gauge.

2006 chevy 2500 express cargo van .What is a good oil pressure for this van. it has 150,000 miles runs great


60psi cold / 30-45psi warm is ideal. I've seen (with that mileage) 45 cold/ 20 warm and that's acceptable - anything less start thinking about a new oil pump.

That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

Oil gage drops to 0


You may have a bad oil pressure sending unit. The kit they are talking about, I believe is a rebuild kit, not the entire pump. Usally the kit consists of a couple rotors and seals. You would take the old parts out the oil pump housing, and install the new ones. But you want to make sure that all the clearances are within specs. I'd try the sending unit first.

2002 Ford Van E-150 the check oil light comes on and of, oil preassure drops at take off, but comes back to normal once I'm driving. Oil level is fine. any ideas. Van only has 120,000 miles on it


Hi. These fluctuating pressure readings are a strong indication of oil pump failure. The oil pump is damaged. I recommend to replace this failing oil pump, and screen. Once replaced, the oil pressure will stabilize.

Oil relatied engine problem...maybe? need help


The clicking sound is from lack of oil or lack of oil pressure. When the lifters pump out then they have too much slack in them and thus the clicking or tapping sound. Sorry to say this, but the engine is either very tired or the oil pump has about had it.
