Doesn't sound good. Your oil pump may be going out that would explain over heating and eventually disaster will strike. You need to install a external gauge and verify that at least you gauge in your vehicle is reading correctly or have someone do it for you. Shouldn't cost much over $60 for private repairmen to do this that would at least tell you that it isn't a gauge issue but I would bet money that your oil pump is weak.

None of the guages gas,voltes,tempture,oil preasure, or speed odometer will not work on 2001 grand marquis g s model


Check out the Battery. No Power no gages. Check all Fuses. Lastly, if you have an on-board computer, it needs to be reset by a technician.

Oil pressure drops to zero at idle on 2002 GMC Envoy after engine warms up


You could have three possable problems that I can think of. 1) Your oil viscosity is too low and you need to change it to a higher level. A 5w/30 or 10w/30 oil may thin out too much when it warms up to normal temp and shows low on your gauge. 2) The preasure relief valve is partially open due to a small piece of debris caught under the seat. Unscrew the oil filter and look at the small disk that is near the threded part on the filter base. Theres a spring behind it to keep it closed so all the oil goes into the engine and not bypass back into the oil pan. Push up on it slightly with a small tip screw driver and see that it fully seats in the hole, put a new filter on, and try it. 3) If these two things don't improve the condition, get a socket for taking the oil preasure sender off and get a oil preasure gauge to test the actual oil preasure the engine is producing. You may have a weak pump in the engine. If the preasure is within good specs, I'd change the sender unit with a new one.

My trailblazer has a idling problem, the battery gage is dropping when sitting at lights etc.thought it was altenator but changed it out still having the problem when it is sitting still it is idling to...


Very low idle will cause a very low voltage output from alternator, so nothing unusual about that. At low idle the truck is basically drawing from the battery, not the alternator. As soon as you cure the idle problem, the alternator gauge reading will return to normal.

How much is oil pressure supposed to hold


10 lds at idle when cold but after buildup of preasure. This will change with oil temp. r.p.m. and engine wear. Low oil preasure is usually the result of engine wear but not a fault in an engine. If the oil light fliker's at idle when warm then the engine is excessavely worn and will soon cause problem's if the oil light stays out when warm at idle then its nothing to worry about.

I have a 1998 Jeep Cherokee with a 4.0L engine. The oil pressure gauge usually stays around 40 on the highway but when I come to a stop it drops down to 10. Is this normal or is my oil pump getting ready...


No this is normal. As an engine wears then oil preasure will be less this is not due to a weak oil pump but wear in crank shaft bearing's. When an engine is new and bearings are tight then oil preasure wont fall a lot from reved up to idle as the engine wear's oil escapes quicker from the crank shaft bearings. Reved up oil preasure increases idle it drops off. If the oil light stays out then their is enough preasure to lubricate the engine. In fact in an older engine high oil preasure is a worse complaint as this means the oil system is clogging. All is ok with your pump. If the oil preasure is moving up and down at constant rev.'s then the oil pump is faulty. Hope this put's your mind to rest.
