It is not pumping engine oil

You need a working oil pump to pump the oil around the engine. If the oil is not being pumped through, the oil pump has failed or there is a blockage in the lubrication system.

Most likely the oil pump has failed and needs to be replaced.

No oil pressure on a 2001 chevy blazer

Possible blockage of the pump screen, or oil pan has been bent by hitting something and is blocking the screen, or defective oil pump.
You will have to take off the oil pan to find out exactly what the problem is. If it is a 4.3 with the cast aluminum pan, most likely a bad pump.

My oil light senses needing oil when level is fine. the car starts but shuts right off. what do you think the problem is? need help asap!

the oil light warns for low oil pressure. meaning you may have enough oil in the car. but its not being pumped around with high enough pressure, this may be because of a bad oil pump, a leak or a blockage

Oil pressure indicator lamp illuminates intermittently

1. check oil level now! If low, add as needed, and keep checking regularly.
2. If level is OK, check oil pressure switch (or sending unit), and the connections at the switch.
3. Have the oil pressure measured by a good mechanic. If the pressure is good, it means that the problem lies somewhere in the pressure sensor or indicator circuit. If the pressure is low, there is a problem in the engine - either a clogged oil filter, bad oil pump, or blockage within the engine.

My isuzu rodeo marks low oil pressure and also the gauge is low

Welcome to Fixya

Check the oil filter. A clogged oil filter can be the cause of low oil pressure. When the oil leaves the pump, it passes through the filter before going on to the bearings and oil galleys. Filters create a certain amount of resistance to flow that increases with the rate of flow. But as the filter becomes clogged with debris, the restriction created increases. It will reached to the point that there were no oil will pass through the filter element. To prevent such a blockage, a pressure relief valve located in the filter or where the filter mounts to the block is designed to open if the pressure differential across the filter exceeds a preset value (typically 5 to 40 psi). This allows the oil to bypass the filter and keep on flowing. But the engine's oil pressure will be reduced to that of the bypass valve. Replacing the filter should solve the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Low oil presure after been repair with a new oil pum

Oil pumps never go bad on these. The pick up screen gets clogged and the oil gallery gets clogged up. This bolts to the main bearing caps # 122 0-51a.gif
