Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

Yukon XL was first showing Reduced Engine Power, then Oil Gauge quit working, now car is running hot


Might help, disconnect negative terminal from battery for 10 minutes, if the compute is getting weird readings this will reset it and maybe help.

2001 Tahoe will start but dies immediately


It is better to have a Higher Oil Pressure.. When shut off it reading 40 is just the gauge I would think. On my 78 Chevy the gauge will not zero out untill the next day when I go to start it and turn the key over. You might try running some Fuel stabilizer through it, Possibly a better Grade gas.. As the oil goes, If you are loosing oil I advise checking it Weekly, and add oil as needed.. to maintain the proper running level.. Change every 5000 miles or so as normal, Also Change filter each time you change the oil. I hope this helps a little. Good luck!

Very first thing you need to do is install a mechanical pressure gauge on there to verify what you see on your gauge. If the actual pressure is low, then it's time to start looking inside the engine. If not, then you need to trace out the electrical problem but will know the engine is safe.

Check the wires to the senders for grounding Those gauges have a power lead to gauge then to sender. The more the sending unit "grounds" the higher the gauge reading

I may need a new oil sender/switch for my Capri XR2. My mechanic can't find the OEM one, it's discontinued. I have found some aftermarket ones with a range of 15-100 PSI. I read that operating pressure is...


I myself would go for the pressure sensor, should be located either on the side of the block or on the side of the side of the oil pan. If you're concerned about the reading, the aftermarket sensors you mentioned should work just fine.

While my truck is running my oil pressure gauge reads full. The gauge zeroes out when you shut the truck off yet it goes up to maximum when I start it again. Nothing seems wrong with the truck. What's up?


The gauge is reading higher oil pressure than it should on the gauge. The gauge has a resistor that is shorting out so a replacement is needed

I replaced my oil preesure sensor and my gauge


Your problem may have nothing to do with the sensor but in fact, the pressure relief in the pump may be stuck. Install a mechanical gauge on there temporarily and check the actual pressure. If normal then the gauge wire may be grounded somewhere. If it reads the same as the one on the dash then the relief is stuck (sometimes it can be freed up by draining the oil filter, filling it with marvel oil and re-starting, sometimes takes time though...otherwise you'll need to take care of the pump)

Oil pressure gauge reads 80 psi with engine off and pegs running


That is probably a defective oil pressure gauge or a broken oil pressure sender, it reads 80 psi just because that is the maximum value allowed.

Pressure can be verified by reading it with a gauge tool.
If you really have pressure over 70 psi when engine is running then start replacing the oil filter, and check that the oil lines from pump are not obstructed, if there is nothing in there then replace oil pump.

If instead the gauge reads 80 with engine off, that is a defective pressure gauge.
