NO, but if the gage is not working if you were to have a problem with the oiling system you would mot know until it was to late, but a non-working gage will hot hurt any thing.

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.

Oil pressure gage reading 80 psi


On GM cars and trucks this is a common problem and is caused by a defective oil pressure sending unit. To replace the sending unit remove the engine dog house cover in the passenger compartment, the oil pressure sending unit is at the back top of the engine

2003 yukon oil presure gauge reads 80 whrn driven or just cranked will it hurt to drive it like this


no, you can drive it , sounds like the oil pressure sending unit has gone bad, you should get it fixed as soon as you can, also make sure that there is no oil leaking from the sending unit if no oil leak go ahead and drive it.

Is the oil gauge in a 2006 1500 4 x 4 silverado suppose to at 80 all the time?


80 PSI is within operating range, but all the time would suggest that it stays there even after you turn your engine off and does not increase incrementally when engine is first turned on. If that is the case you have a faulty oil pressure sending unit or a stuck gauge.

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

99 dodge dakota. Oil pressure moves between 40 & 80.


Believe it or not....this is actually normal depending on which oil that you use. Some of the thinner oils will cause this to jump around and the thicker oils will make it jump around less. When you first start the truck the oil is thicker and will read a high psi then get lower with less rpm while the oil warms and then gets thinner then builds pressure again with more volume being put through the engine while you drive down the road hence going back up to 80 psi. This is typical winter issue with the Dakota's in general. I would only be concerned if the pressure bottoms out while driving or starting.

Thanks for using fixya!

Sincerely,

JC
