The pickup tube is a bad design in these engines, I have fixed several with the same problem, you can weld on a GM screen move it 1/4 of a inch away from the pan or add 1 inch to the bottom of the pan, (use a high volume pump) the problem is the screen is too close and too small and will pick up any sludge off the bottom. also it's great to make a access plate on the bottom of the pan using a Volkswagen Bug oil cover plate, it can be removed with bolts after a oil drain to clean the screen without the hassle of removing the whole oil pan by lifting the engine on these trucks. Good Luck

Tell your dealer to replace the electronic throttle motor. This is your problem.

SOURCE: Low Oil Pressure and rough idle

Please understand, all I can offer you are suggestions, since I don't have access to hands on testing. You might first change oil and filter.
If going by the oil pressure guage, low oil pressure can mean worn crankshaft bearings, as the clearance between bearings and crankshaft is what determines oil pressure.
Of course a worn oil pump can cause the same problem.
You might want to connect an external oil pressure guage to the engine to verify the pressure reading.

The rough running at this point would be hard to pin poit.
Because I do not know the extent of the rust, I can suggest that you consider having it undercoated.

Again, I can only make suggestion because you need an absoluate diagnosis.

First have your oil level checked and make sure that it is at the right level. If not that's your problem, if your level is good you may have a bad oil pressure switch. This can be checked by using a oil pressure guage. If switch is bad replace and solve the problem. However if your vehicle has alot of wear and tear on he engine and you were using 20w-50 oil and it was replaced with 5w-30 that oil may be too "light" for the vehicle and you would get a low oil pressure reading. Good Luck

Hi! The problem you are outlining is very similar to the Rover V8 (Buick engine). We Brit's are used to the low oil pressure when warm. I presume a complete oil change engine flushed with new replacement filter has been carried out? Maybe a top quality synthetic oil with additive may help. You may take it a little further and replace the oil pump with an after market performance up rated one. If you really are worried about low oil pressure damage whilst in low rev's try Molybnenum Disulphide an oil additive which really reduces friction metal to metal wear particulary in the situation you are describing.
That's the best I can suggest at this moment.
Good Luck! and Happy New Year!

2001 tundra low oil pressure at idel engine warms up what does line on gauge repersent in lb how to fix or is it normal 90,000 miles obit always did since m


Well according to the owners manual, anything from low up to the last mark is normal. I think they mean anything from the low mark up half way is normal for idle.
If the gauge stays near L at idle and while driving, you could have low oil pressure or a gauge problem. A mechanic would check pressure with a mechanical gauge.
Normal for most engines is around 25-40 psi at idle and 30-60 psi when driving.

Oil guage falls when you come to a complete stop while still in drive?


It is normal for oil pressure to lower when engine is idling, but if it drops too much, it could be a worn pump. To check, have a shop hook up a mechanical oil pressure gauge and get the true oil pressure. Manufacturers often have a minimum pressure spec at idle and then at a higher rpm, also. Have your pressure checked against the manufacturer's specifications.

The oil light comes on at times and goes off as the rpms go up. What can be done about the light?


Maybe your engine is idling too slowly, If the revs are below say 700rpm the low pressure warning light could come on especially when the engine is hot.. If the idle speed is ok try a heavier grade of oil in the engine. Next try a new oil pressure sensor. It's got to be one of these things. Check the engine running temperature . An over-hot engine will cause the oil light to come on too.

Oil light is on


May be bad oil pressure sending unit. Best way to check is to connect a mechanical oil pressure guage to engine and check pressures when engine is warm. Should be no lower than 40 psi at idle when warm, no higher than 70 psi at 2000 rpm.

Theres a sound on the top head and it sounds like lifters. also it wont boost and the oil pressure is low, very low, can i get help with this please


Lifers will rattle if oil pressure is low. Have you screwed in an oil pressure guage to check. Should read about 20 psi at idle and 40-60psi above idle.
Causes are nemerous from low oil level to worn out engine. You dont mention mileage. Normally very good engines.
