SOURCE: 2001 chevy silverado hd. oil pressure dropped to 0

Oil pump is what it sounds like to me. I hope it hasn't ran much since all of it started as you can cause internal damage such as rod and main bearings which can grow to even worse problems. Wouldn't run it until I took a look at it if I were you. I hope this helped and good luck.

I changed my oil pump on a Chevy Silverado HD and I don't have oil pressure Now

The relief valve in the pump is stuck open or missing the spring. Is the plastic coupling for the drive in place? Oil pressure should be 30 psi. or better. Also check the pick up tube for looseness in pump. Air leak will not prime the pump.

Put a gage in the sending unit hole and see if the oil pump is weak, that is the best way to tell if the engine pump is ok.

1996 chevy s10 4.3 vortex lifters knocking at start up but goes away after 10 minutes idling. changed oil and filter oil pump reads 58-60psi at idle and seems to be working.

High milage? Try engine cleaner, run for couple hundred miles and then use an additive like Restore. If it's just dirt this may help. Make sure you are using the correct viscosity oil for winter temps. If it's from wear only parts replacement will fix it.

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 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,
