I would check the actual oil pressure with a wet gauge. Locate the sending unit on top of the oil filter housing, remove the sending unit and install the wet gauge to check the actual oil pressure.

2004. Ran for a week, maybe 50 miles total, with oil light on, then came engine noise like a knocking. Oil level a bit high. What's wrong?

Likely head gasket failure. Oil level appears high because coolant is leaking into oil. This dilutes the oil causing the knocking. Oil usually looks brown or foamy when this happens. Park it now.

96 grand power to anything.

Look for a power relay in the fuse box under the hood.When you find it change it with another one in the fuse box that has the same part number on it.Make sure not to use the fuel pump relay.

My 2003 chevy silverondo feul pump stops working . have changed feul pump worked good for week and started doing it again. will start up again but who knows when

Did you replace the wire harness from the new sending unit to the frame??the old one tends to break when moved around causing issues and also inspect the ground wire also to ensure that it's still has a great ground on the frame from the harness.

The other thing also is that you may want to replace the fuel pump relay just to make sure it's now faulty. Just swap it out with another relay in the relay box.

Good luck and keep us posted.

We have a 2002 chevy Tahoe, 5.3 v-8 sometimes when we start it the gauges wont work for a minite or two, then they will just pop up, also it sometimes feels real sluggish with no power. the other day it...

The first problem about the gauges and lack of power is most likely the ignition switch.
On the 5.3 there is actually 2 knock sensors on this engine and they reside under the intake plenum on the engine, so you have to remove the intake on the engine to get at them. If your truck actually does have a serviceable fuel filter it will be on the frame somewhere under the drivers door area. if you don't see it then it is internal in the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assy and does not require replacement unless the pump goes bad.

Have a 03 matrix with a oilpump promblem I think,bought the car last week ran good next day was drive on highway notice oil lap on and noise from motor ,slowed down light went off.Next day change oil and...

Generally three things can turn the light on. First is the sending unit itself if it's going bad. Next is an obstruction of the pump pickup screen (usually hard carbon deposits). Third is worn engine bearings (usually rod bearings). Best way to find the problem is to have someone put a mechanical pressure gauge on the engine and read the actual pressure. If it's low you need to go into the engine to determine why. if it's normal, replace the sending unit. Senders aren't terribly expensive and you could just buy one and replace the one you have, providing the engine isn't tapping or knocking.

2000 silverado 4.3 V6. Replaced feul pump and niw it starts but it takes 3-4 cranks in the morn to start it and then it runs very rough untill it has ran for 1/2 to 1 hr. Also have replace fuel filter...

The rough running should have caused the check engine light to come on. It would be a good idea to goa ahead and scan the engine for trouble codes. The rough running could be a number of things. The codes would help us pinpoint the correct part ot replace, rather than start replacing parts until we get lucky and hit the right one. That could be very expensive.

1992 GMC Sonoma - 4.3l cannot start after stall and knocking.

Sounds like an engine sensor, EGR valve or O2 sensor has failed. First thing to do is to look at the engine trouble codes to pin down the failure. You can usually borrow an OBD1 code checker from your local parts store.
