This is what i would do have to oil pressure tested if it is where it needs to be I would either replace the gauge or install after market, if the oil pressure is low try replacing the oil pump first, that is what gets you your oil pressure, if the oil pressure doesn't stay up then you might need an engine but try that first.

Will not start after warm-up


Try putting a fuel pressure gauge on the injector fuel rail. Start the engine then turn it off, the pressure should hold steady not drop to zero. If it drops you have a bad injector leaking fuel into the engine. Also smell the oil to see if it smells like gas.

1993 chevy pickup z 71 driving down interstate and check gauge light came on and oil presure dropped to 0. Truck died and cant start again


It could be the oil pressure sending unit, or the engine could really have no oil pressure.
If the oil pressure dropped to zero at highway speed, I would expect the engine to lock up or at least make alot of noise.
You may have to tow it home and check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, or replace the sending unit to see if the gauge on the dash reads pressure.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay at startup, then runs off power from that oil sending unit when the engine is running.

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.....

My oil levelis ok on the dipstick but the oil pressure keeps dropping


It could be caused by a faulty, " oil sending unit ,"but,
It is more likely that your oil pump is going out.

I have a 2005 Isuzu ascender, the gauge light keeps coming on. The oil gauge drops to zero. I have gotten an oil change and new filter. What can the problem be now?


It could be a bad oil sending sensor, or the oil pump. When it drops, does the gauge stay on zero or fluctuates. The sending sensor isn't to bad to replace or cost wise, but pump is a different story. Have someone check the sending unit or just have it replaced to see if that's the problem.

Hi my oil light came on and my oil presure dropped to zero. the car still starts and runs. no oil going to the turbo. 1998 3.0 trooper cheers


These cars have 2 oil pumps in the block - one for the injection side and one for the lube side. Drop the tin sump and check out the  longer pick up pipe they crack and the seal fails .
