5w30 conventional, minimum rating SM (all modern quality automobile oils will hold this rating). you may use any brand, try to stick to a major brand. you can also use synthetic oils, which use the same rating system, but provide further protection for your engine. hope this is helpful!

Oil pan bolt torque

oil pan bolts are torqued in inch lbs due to their size and usually doesn't require a specific torque value. all bolts in a manual does show torque settings in all applications.However because of its non critical application a specific value is not necessary. a "snug" tightness is adequate with proper gasket/sealer in place to prevent seepage or leaks. in that area of the engine,leak can come from almost anywhere. top,front,or even rear of the engine blown by the wind a car creates while in motion. oil sensors{ but not limited to} are notorious for leaks as the vehicle ages particularly in that area. steam clean or thoroughly degrease the area and run the engine a few miles and recheck the area before proceeding to make repairs.

Oil leak

You have to differentiate whether the oil leak is from the engine or the tranny. After determining where the source, you must isolate the specific area; timing belt area, the middle-between the engine and the tranny. This can be cheaply determine by placing white piece of paper underneath the engine and observe the droppings of oil. Oil leak repair can be costly-especially an oil starved engine, so isolating the source is essential and tear-down might required.
Due to the age of the vehicle, possible sources are the camshaft seal, crankshalf seal, oil pan gasket, crankshaft end seal,distributor o-ring, and valve cover gasket.
In addition, other oil leaks can come the transmission, and power steering pump and rack'n'pinion. Best to raise the vehicle and inspect undercarriage of vehicle.

How do I check and possibly replace the engine oil pressure sensor in a 2006 GMC Envoy Denali?

Oil Pressure Test Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge. A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific RPM.
  1. While the engine is cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Note and record the oil pressure reading when the engine is cold. The engine may need to run at a specified RPM, if so check the vehicle's specification.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached.
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the value. Turn off the engine.
Compare the hot oil pressure reading to the specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the specification. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, the engine may have the wrong viscosity oil. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, and then repeat the test.
Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

Oil preassure indicator blinking on minimun RPM engine, reading is almot 0, if press throtle will stop blinking

Get a pressure gauge and see what type of pressure this this vehicle is giving you at idle and at about 2000 RPM's. Your gonna have to remove the oil pressure sending unit/switch to screw in the pressure gauge. If its giving you the prescribed pressure while testing, worse case scenario is over. ( oil pump, engine wear) If your not getting the prescribed pressure with the testing gauge, its either the oil pump or engine wear or both. Have a Certified ASE Technician look over the vehicle if this is the out come. There is additional testing to be done which requires additional tooling expertise in this area.

Now if the pressure was within spec's with the test on gauge, its either the switch, the wiring to and from the gauge or the gauge itself. Get the Shop Repair manual for this vehicle for Oil pressure specifications as well as additional testing of switch , circuitry and gauge. This is fun stuff . Wear gloves and eye protection while removing the switch and screwing in the testing gauge and vise versa after testing is completed. Good luck

I need a diagram of how to relace oil pump

Removal of Oil Pump
Note: While this task is possible when the engine is in place in the vehicle, in practice, it requires so much preliminary disassembly, and is so difficult to perform due to the restricted access, that owners are advised to remove the engine from the vehicle first.
NOTE: However, that the oil pump pressure relief valve can be removed with the engine in place.
If you have required tool's, engine stand, engine lift if you have them I can give you directions how to remove it.
Please let me know if this is of any HELP.

Oil consumption-1 Qt/1000 miles-50k on vehicle 2005 Hyundai Tuscon

Are you using the correct weight oil as outlined in your owner's manual. You car is unusual in that the specifications require you to use 10w40 oil when driving above −13 degrees fahrenheit. It also states that you are to use 5w20 when operating the vehicle in temperatures below 14 degrees fahrenheit. Then goes on to say not to be used for sustained high speed operation. So all in all the specifications for your vehicle are odd in that most vehicles today use 5w20 weight oil. I personally would use 10w40 or 10w30 weight in this engine as that would be appropriate for the vast majority of how and where you drive. If you are using a lighter weight oil that may be why it is using oil at this rate
