First - make sure the oil sending unit is working and that the wire is on the connector. If the wire is on - -replace the sending unit. As for the rattle - try putting the top grade gas in it and run it for a week. Also you can ****** the timing just a little and this can help.

    what size engine? v6 or 4cyl? the 4cyl will make timing chain noise as chain stretches and guides wear. as far as your oil pressure might be a sending unit problem

1999 suburban gage oil pressure is 0 when it warms up. rpm drop to 3-4 rpm when oil pressure goes to 0. Sounds good, runs excellent -no noise. Actually it sound better then most new cars. It is so...


I looked at info for 1500--5.7L engine.
6 psi @ 1000 rpms
18 psi@2000 rpms
24 psi @ 4000 rpms

Sometimes, you can use analog gage in place of oil pressure sending unit and double check oil pressure that way. If oil pressure is actually low, if high mileage engine, I doubt replacing oil pump will help. I just wanted to add, check oil pressure engine warmed up.

Oil gage buries all the way past high. After driving with it like that for a while, the truck engine konks out and will not start. Last time we waited on the side of road for 40 minutes and then it started...


Do you believe oil gage? Oil psi sensor can go bad. If PSI correct then is PCV valve clear?
I'm more inclined to think you have some kind of electrical problem, false gauge, ignition quits or fuel delivery problem. Extreme high oil PSI would blow out your engine seals, leaking oil everywhere. When you get high oil psi, does removing oil cap make it drop? Do you have good clean oil and filter?
When it quits do you have spark, fuel to delivery system? (throttle body or fuel inj) High oil psi shouldn't make truck hard to start. Baffling.

Oil Pressure Suddenly Reading in High and Low Ranges


either the oil pressure sender is defective or the pressure relief ball valve in the oil pump is sticking, my money would be on the oil pump pressure relief valve ball sticking.

new oil pump will cure the oil pressure problem but you will have to see if it helps the rattle in the top of motor depending on how much damage it has already caused

Oil Pressure


please befor you destroy the engine , have an oil pressure gage installed where your sending unit is to be sure you have enough oil pressure to even be driving the truck at all. on a hot motor at idle you should have at least 15 psi. at 2000 rpm you could have as much as 60 psi

Oil pressure gage


At idle, at operating temp is there any ticking from top end of engine? Are there any knocking noises brom bottom end?
If no noises, change oil and add some Marvel oil to clean out galleys. If that dosent work, change oil pressure sendingf unit. Also, if you have a mechanical oil pressure gauge, hook it up and take a direct reading. Oil pressure (in any vehicle) at idle should NEVER be less than 15psi. Generally in 4.0 jeep engines it's never less than 30, with a high reading at driving rpm of about 40-60! (but, you did not mention what engine you have)
