It means you will need a new motor soon! Engine is being starved of oil. Bearings and seals will be shot. Oil pump could be bad.

Oil pressure drops engine knocking and dies


Hi Josh, Sounds to me as if you've got serious engine damage. This will probably need a replacement engine or a rebuild. Sorry pal. Regards John

Oil pressure gauge does not reach 40 PSI. Heard the sounds like a loud ticking coming from the engine on the passengers side. Then pressed on the gas peddle and it didn't want to add power. Ticking n


Not sure if there is a question here or not. If the pressure is always below 40 and you are hearing engine noise, chances are the oil pressure really is low. You could replace the sending unit or use a mechanical gauge to verify.

Oil pressure gauge is reading zero


Could be the gauge on the dash. If you really had no oil pressure the engine would be very loud.
A mechanic would check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to verify.

MY 97 yukon has Rough idle, loud knocking at high torque, and oil pressure goes from 40psi to 0psi. what do you think is the problem?


Checking oil level won't tell you anything

You need to put a mechanical gauge on
the motor,you can't go by the dash for accuracy

You could have many things that need to be
done preventative maintenance wise before
you even start to diagnose the couple of current
issues

Dash Check Lights?
Codes?
Driven for two years & never worked on?

We can't guess,you need a repair shop to
give you the solution

Oil presure gauge went to zero and computer said low oil presure! I then heard a loud knocking coming from engine! I check level of engine oil and its full, what do you think it is?


You didn't state the mileage (would help with diagnosis) But unfortunately you have suffered major engine damage. And that would depend if the knocking you hear is steady at engine idle or only knocks when reving the engine . For some reason the oil pressure did fall to zero, most likely due to bearing wear but again depends on mileage. If knocks constant at idle it is a spun main bearing, if knocks only while reving engine it is a spun connecting rod bearing. Either require an engine overhaul. Or engine swap, Once again it depends on how many miles you have the engine to determine if its wise to rebuild it or replace it. I hope this answers your Q.....

Hi, this is not the first time i've heard of this problem..I have repaired engines with rod knock, crank bearing knock and piston slap after these treatments. These products can clean so much carbon and varnish from the engine that it brings the real internal problems to the surface. Try using thicker oil

Sounds like your motor was starved of oil or had an internal malfunction. Possible rod and main bearing damage causing the motor to knock then lock-up. Check your oil level, if there is none or its low, this is the cause of the loud clicking/knocking. Have a mechanic check it out, you may need a new engine or major engine repair!!Hopefully this helps
