I have a 2003 gmc sierra 5.3 liter vortec why does my truck leak oil only under pressure


because your oil pressure rises to around 40psi when running and will leak at the weakest place,check your oil sending unit first and seals.

Oil pressure gauge has pegged tothe high side


Probably pressure sending gauge. Can't recall its exact location gotta be in block between ( or next to oil filter) and cam shaft. Unplug it put your pressure tester in its place and check your pressure.If a-ok either clean out the unit with compressed air or replace it . Replacement is the better option. Also check the wiring to the gauge it might be gounded. If pressure is still high when your checking it (which I really doubt) .....keep me posted I'll walk you threw it.

What should it be for a gmc sierra 1500 5.3 liter oil presssure


If you are using the gauge that came with the vehicle it's accuracy is not great. These gauges were designed so that at a glance you can see the needle is pointing basically to the middle of the dial. As long as the needle is more od less there, you're okay but the numbers mean nothing due to the gauges in accuracy. If you really want to check the oil pressure, the procedure is pretty easy but requires decent equipment as well as the knowledge of where to tap into the pressurized oil system.

2004 GMC Sierra High Oil Pressure


if it is electrical oil pressure sensor I would start there. The best way to see if you have a major problem is to use a mechanical oil pressure tester. Take off the oil pressure sensor and put the mechanical tester on. The tester should come with a Gage. If it comes within your trucks oil pressure range than all is fine and replace the sending unit and see if that don't help your problem.If the tester runs high then the oil pump is bad or your cam-bearings could be the problem. But with cam-bearings you would usually get a low reading.

Oil pressue gage just started acting up when moving it stays at 40 when you stop and are idling drops just above red zone


put a manual oil pressue gauge on the truck and make sure your not losing oil pressure, it would not be wise to assume the gauge is bad and turns out your wrong and need a new motor ;(. could be the sending unit but best to check for pressure before throwing any parts at it please rate -jeff
