Oh yes. unfortunately it does not take long for the engine to lock after the oil pump stops working. did you notice how long it was since the gauge dialed zero until the truck died?

03 Tahoe oil pressure gague went from 80+ to 0 but runs fine


Oil pressure guage is generally for the engine instead of the transmission. Probably a bad sending unit or gauge. Most commonly it is a bad sending unit or broken connection between the dash and the sending unit mounted on the engine.

1993 chevy pickup z 71 driving down interstate and check gauge light came on and oil presure dropped to 0. Truck died and cant start again


It could be the oil pressure sending unit, or the engine could really have no oil pressure.
If the oil pressure dropped to zero at highway speed, I would expect the engine to lock up or at least make alot of noise.
You may have to tow it home and check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, or replace the sending unit to see if the gauge on the dash reads pressure.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay at startup, then runs off power from that oil sending unit when the engine is running.

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,
