Question about Cars & Trucks
First, there is a PCV valve, unless someone removed it.
A local car parts store or garage should be able to tell you where it is located.
Second, a lot of pressure ( usually called "blow-by") can be a problem.
Blow-by that is extreme can blow the oil out of your engine whilst you are driving it, and cause motor failure.
I should recommend you deal with the PCV valve first, and be certain the pipes and or hoses are good to it, as this has a lot to do with blow-by.
Other than the PCV system, blow-by can also be caused by worn rings on the pistons or worn valve guides.
God bless your efforts.

the sensor is on the side of the engine block. there's two thing that monitors oil. a pressure switch turns you oil light on and you oil pressure sensor the operates your gauge, start with your sensor. that is near you oil filter that is where it gets it pressure reading from

Have it scanned and see if there isn't a trans code. If it is spinning out between gears that is called slippage. There is not much you can do since there are no adjustments. The only thing that it could be other than the trans itself is a problem with the TPS, Throttle Position Sensor, and if that is defective and you don't repair it right away you can do serious damage to the trans. (almost 30 years rebuilding trans and 4 of them directly for GM. I know the 4l60e extremely well) Do not drive this if it is slipping. Hope this helps.

poor oil circulation may need either more oil or a new oil pump, any other symptoms?
It could just be the pressure sensor, as this is cheaper get it looked at first.
Hope this helps
