    yes it is. this is typical of most cars - the oil pump is gear driven, as your RPMs go up so does the oil pressure.

Sounds like you need to replace thermostat assy and add new antifreeze and as far as your oil gauge, replace the "oil pressure sending unit". That should solve your problem

How do i replace oil pump on 01 monte carlo ss


If the oil pan will clear the steering components without jacking up the engine then drop the pan and unbolt the oil pump. You'll need to get a new pan gasket for the oil pan too.

I have a 2003 monte carlo ss i fixed the intake gasket but now the car losses oil pressure i changed the oil and put in 10 w 40 new filter found out i use the wrong oil so i changed the oil to 10 w 30...


It is hard to say without being able to check the vehicle. It is possible that gasket material, silicone, etc. ended up inside the engine duing the repairs and is now stuck in your oil pump screen. It is also possible that you really do not have low oil pressure and the gauge is "lying" to you.

The way to find out is to remove the oil pressure sending unit and install a manual gauge. Take an actual pressure reading to see if the car's gauge is accurate. If it is not accurate, you most likely need a new sending unit. If you find that the oil pressure is actually low, then it is time to pull the oil pan and look inside to see what kind of damage or debris is in the oil pan.

2001 Monte Carlo SS 92,000 have to add quart of oil every other month. Engine is very clean, no smell of burning old and no blue smoke and no leaks on the ground, Use total synthenic oil for high mileage...


No doubt valve seals,the oil gets burned so you usually can't see it.Normal for GM motors,actually the small amount of oil will help the longevity of the engine.They can be changed in a few hours but I would leave it alone.When they get really bad if the car sits and idles you will see some smoke. The seal is just a small o-ring ,they get brittle and fall off.The shop can use air pressure at the spark plug hole to keep the valve up,compress the valve spring and replace the seal.
