Oil pressure drops to 0 then goes back up


Definitely needs resolving.
Since both light and guage drop occur, problem would appear to be with oil pump or oil delivery rather than simply a bad guage.
You could check to see if there is a common sender that may be defective.
It is also possible that the oil pump pickup screen has an obstruction.
I'd be looking at the recent history.
Has ANYTHING been done to the vehicle that might lead to this problem
Make, model, milage, maintenance history..........
All will help to track down the problem.

Check engine oil pressure light coming on and causing engine to die. After 5 minutes, no light and no engine trouble.


Yes I would say the oil pressure switch is faulty. The oil pressure gauge uses a different sensor, so if the gauge did not drop but the warning light came on, I would have the warning light switch checked. If the warning light comes on, the fuel pump will stop getting power and you will lose fuel pressure too.

1989 F150 351 oil pressure guage starting dropping to 0 suddenly and engine light comes one. When I rev the engine it goes back to normal but a soon as the rpms drop the needle goes all the way to the left...


Hi:
Usually your oil light doesnt come on unless you have less than 10 lbs of oil pressure. You either have a bad oil pressure sending unit, or your engines oil pump is bad. The only way to verify your engines oil pressure is to buy a direct reading pressure guage and install it on your truck, or have a mechanic check your engine oil pressure. Eitherway, you need to do something soon, because the long term effects of running with low oil pressure will ruin your truck engine.

How do you fix check gauges light when it comes on


What are your guages reading? The CPU thinks it see's a problem.
My oil pressure would drop and my light would come on.
Oil, Charge, all could cause a check guage light.

Difference between oil sending unit and the oil pressure switch


Same part...make sure you get one for gauge, not idiot light though. If the engine has any knocking or ticking when pressure drops do not drive it and have a mechanical gauge installed to check actual pressure. Parts often have different names for same item...your driveshaft is actually called a propeller shaft!!!

1998 dodge 3500 check engine comes on


have the engine oil pressure checked with a mechanical guage, if it is about 15 PSI hot replace the sending unit for the guage, u will need to buy a special deep oil pressure sending unit socket for this job, they are made by KD and Lisle tools, they can be bought at NAPA.
