Bad oil pump and/or blown oil pan gasket or oil plug from incomplete oil change. don't try driving it like this or you'll blow your engine.
Try to wash the engine and oil pan, Put oil in filler hole. Check oil level. look under truck to see if you can find where the oil is coming from. If it is just a gasket, replace it If you replace the gasket and still have no pressure, you'll need to remove oil pan and change out oil pump, replace pan gasket with new one and clean pan before you put it back on. Make sure you use one of those cheap oil recycling continers from your local parts store so you don't create a huge mess.

Could be a broken oil pressure sending line or something worse.... Hole in oil pan, broken/missing (blown-off) oil filter.

If my 2004 chevy silverado oil pressure gage stays at 80 psi could this hurt the engine


I would want to know what the actual oil pressure is. The sending unit or the gauge on the dash could have failed.
There is a pressure relief valve to prevent oil pressure from going too high, but staying at 80psi would not be good for a long time.

How does someone install manual oil pressure gauge on 2006 chevy 2500 with 6.0L Vortex


where the oil pressure sender unit is on the block install a "t" fitting . Place the electrical unit in one side and a brass fitting in the other . Run the copper line from the gauge through the firewall to the "T" piece and connect up (if you are using a plastic tube the do not waste your time as the plastic fails -cracks ,slips. or melts causing engine failure) Position the gauge and connect the copper line to the gauge . run engine and check for oil leaks.

2007 Chevy Silverado oil pressure gauge fluxuating, setting off computer on dash reading "engine oil low" also warning bell sounds. Thanks!


If you are lucky , replacing the oil pressure sender unit will solve the problem. Your truck might have perfectly good oil pressure , but a bad sensor. OR you might actually have low oil pressure , which is not good , and will be expensive to fix. Good luck.

On my 1999 chevy silverado the only gauges that work are the oil pressure gauge and the temperature gauge. nothing else is working cot even the speedometer or the RPM gauge.


The stepping motors in the gauges go bad. Do a search on ebay for CHEVY SILVERADO INSTRUMENT CLUSTER for cheaper repair options, dealer costs $300.00

Changed oil pressure switch,still no oil pressure


The fuel pump on that model runs through the oil pressure switch so that if the truck looses oil pressure,It kills power to the fuel pump to prevent engine damage.you need to find the cause of the low oil pressure reading(possibly a bad oil switch).That would be the cheapest place to start,or have it checked with a mechanical gauge.Good luck,
