First thing to check is the oil sending unit. Check to see if the wire is attached snugly.
Changing the oil sending unit is easy and fairly inexpensive. This should solve your problem.

I beleive your oil sending unit is on the very back top right corner of the intake manifold, but screwed into the engine block.

2003 yukon big motor oil pressure gage drop to o message and alarm goes off Oil level ok.has done this in past and quits.


if the guage is unreliable and its the only one that is, may switch to an aftermarket separate oil pressure guage that mounts elsewhere and be done with the situation entirely..these run around 25 bucks and its time to install and it wont fail like electronic ones do...

TEMP GUAGE JUST QUIT WORKING. COOLANT LEVEL IS FINE, HOSES ARE FINE. EVERYTHING IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. TEMP GUAGE READS BELOW COLD, YET ELECTRIC COOLING FAN COME ON WHEN ENGINE IS SHUT DOWN.


your gage has just gone out and needs to be replace. the computer control the fan. so as long as the temp sensor is connected to the engine it will work fine but you will not know the temp of your vehicle.

The oil pressure gage is reading zero and the oil is full. How can I tell if it is the gage or the oil pump?


It is quite possible that the Oil pressure guage is faulty or else with a zero reading of the oil pressure the engine would have packed out. So removing the valve door will confirm if there is oil flow and confirm the guage. You can also remove the line to the guage and connect the line to a bottle, when the engine starts up the oil pressure will be displayed with a good pressure spray.... but be careful not be spray it all over with a loose joint.

1996 Explorer 4wd sport - oil pressure


I would use 10W-30W, but that should not make the oil pressure read low, have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical test guage, if it tests within normal range then start by replacing the oil pressure sending unit.

Temp guage read hot, volt guage reads low, and oil pressure guage tops out. Could this be a bad ground?


Possibly, i would check the sending unit and of course the wires that connect to the temp prob. They often become worn or even short out on other wires. I suspect that the gage is telling the truth and you have a blown head gasket. Check the oil for water. Check the water level and see if you are losing water. good luck

Irradic reading at oil pressure guage


The sending unit would be the first thing to change, at least it would eliminate that.
