Could be the oil pressure sending unit is reading incorrect. The oil pump may be going out. Has the oil and filter been changed lately?

Always start at the least expensive item. ths would be the oil filter. if its a double wall one,switch to a single. if this doesnt work,then test the oil sending unit. alot of the older caddys do this,and as long as you dont hear lifters tapping,i wouldnt sweat it.

Low oil pressure warning comes on


Make sure oil level is full, possible faulty oil pressure sender. replace sender and recheck, if warning still comes up, possible internal engine issue.

I have a 1998 gmc sierra and mt oil pressure gets low after engine warms up ive been told its my rod and main bearing but i think it could be the oil pump but im not for sure please help


Well, they may be right in saying that normal engine wear is causing this problem as the distance between the bearings and the oil passages gets bigger, the oil pressure drops.

If you want to spend the money on a new oil pump, you can, but there is no guarantee that will solve the problem.

You're right, the oil pump's passages might be wearing along with the rest of the engine causing this gradual low oil pressur problem.

Have you had the oil changed along with the filter to see if maybe there's a circulation problem in the engine?

I had low oil pressure on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine, that was intermittently flashing the low oil pressure light.

I read that it's recommended to change the oil to the proper viscosity and that seemed to clear up my problem on my GM Northstar engine.

It's worth a try.

Good luck on this repair.

Hi i recently bought a 95 deville sedan, and when i come to a stop the low oil pressure inication light comes on. if i turn the car off and back on, i have no problem. what are the possible causes of this...


A bad oil pump would be your worst case, but, My oil pressure gauge drops right down to nothing at idle and goes right back up when I take off. It's like a tachometer. Has been like that for 10 years. Might just be a sensitive sending unit. My old truck had a gauge that would measure 65 lbs pressure with one qt of oil in it! So, the pressure in not necessarily the level. I don't know what to say about the light. Hope this helps.

95 Deville - Low Refridgerant/AC Comp. off


To diagnose problems, an A/C manifold gauge set is needed to read high and low side pressure readings. Avoid adding refrigerant with a simple charging kit like the ones sold at parts stores. Don’t add any stop leak, this can cause problems in the compressor, expansion valve or condenser.
Keep in mind that using an A/C gauge set and seeing BOTH high and low side readings can help in diagnosing the problem when you know what to look for. First, on a 134A system the high and low side service ports are different sizes. AC gauge sets have color coded hoses, the blue color coded hose has a connection that fits on the low side service port and the red hose has a connection that will only fit onto the high side. The yellow hose won’t hook up to anything if just checking the readings; it can be used to connect to a vacuum pump or attached to a refrigerant can or tank.

Normal readings on high and low side with AC OFF (static pressure) - Depends on outside temperature, but normally is between 80-105 PSI
Normal low side reading with AC on high speed and MAX & engine at 800-1000 RPM’s - Ranges from 25-35 PSI - Note that on many Chrysler products a normal reading on the low side may be 15-25 PSI
Normal high side reading ranges from 200-350 PSI

Don’t assume that if adding little Freon is good that adding a lot is better!  Overcharging just a little can decrease the performance of the system and possibly damage the compressor.

Both low and high side readings are lower than normal, this indicates a cars AC system is low on refrigerant and is under-charged.
If both low and high side readings are too high, this indicates an overcharged system - too much refrigerant. This also can indicate that the condenser fan is not working, is too slow or the car is overheating and heat is transferring from the radiator to the condenser.

Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted be glad to answer any question you may have. And yes the A/C system on your car uses R143a and there is a A/C pressure switch along the low pressure line or on the accumulator, it looks like a oil pressure sensor with a two wire lead cliped on it.
