If the gauge reads zero, the pump is not pumping much water, the multiport valve is not set to filter, or the gauge is bad. I think I missed one of your posts but it sound like a flow problem, either at the pump or through the filter.

Oil pressure gauge reading zero


check the oil pressure first, it should read around 10 to 14 psi. If pressure is inside the range then your pressure sensor is bad. If lower or reads 0 psi your got a engine problem, further diagnosis needed. Good luck.

Oil pressure drops to zero on avalanche


If there truly was no oil pressure it would make a horrendous rattle sound from not only the rods but especially the hydraulic valve lifters. It sounds like probably the pressure sensor or the wiring, or both are not reading correctly. The older Chevy V8's had the pressure sensor on the side of the block, under the exhaust manifold where it would just cook it and make it leak and not work right. I always kept a direct reading pressure gauge with hose and adapters in my tool box when I felt I couldn't trust the onboard gauge. Many times it proved the gauges and idiot lights wrong.

Oil pressure gauge reads high only when engine is running,oil level is fine


that is a sign of the wrong oil grade. that truck takes 5 w 20 oil

Dropping oil pressure


You need to put a mechanical gauge on it to read actual oil pressure, sometimes the sensor is wrong, have seen the gauge be off (even on newer than yours). The first thing anyone would do is the mechanical pressure test with a screw in oil pressure gauge. That would be my advise.

Low oil presure


perform a master oil pressure test. this is done by removing the oil pressure sending unit and installing a oil pressure gauge. if the reading on the test gauge is ok, the sending unit needs to be replaced. if the pressure reads low on the test gauge, there may be excessive bearing wear or you may have worn valve guides. good luck!

While my truck is running my oil pressure gauge reads full. The gauge zeroes out when you shut the truck off yet it goes up to maximum when I start it again. Nothing seems wrong with the truck. What's up?


The gauge is reading higher oil pressure than it should on the gauge. The gauge has a resistor that is shorting out so a replacement is needed

It plunges down to zero at times then reads eratic


Your oil becomes too fluid as the engine gets warmer. When the engine rotates slower at stops, the oil pump won't make pressure. At speeds, more oil is pumped and the pressure rises.
Have you recently changed your oil? Or maybe is too old. The real problem would be if you read zero at normal cruising revolutions.

Oil pressure gauge drops to zero when stopped/idle. resumes pressure @1500rpm or better. sending unit or pump


This has an electric pressure gauge with a sending unit. Try this: When at idle, SLOWLY increase the engine speed. If the needle on the pressure gauge all of a sudden leaps to a pressure (like 'real quick') and acts normally with even faster engine speeds, the sending unit is bad. (It is just not reading the lower pressures.) Zero engine pressure will manifest itself in a bunch of knocky sounds and lifters that aren't pumping up and therefore "ticking" loudly. You probably don't have that since you didn't mention these problems.
Replace the sending unit after the above test and you should be fine.

Oil Pressure Guage


Oil pressure is read by the sending unit, not created by it. If you replaced the sender and do not see a minimum of 20psi there is something wrong inside the engine.Some people will tell you that 5psi is "safe". In reality, in an otherwise perfect engine it may be but in real world application, the 20psi number is the lowest I'd ever accept in any engine.(at idle) Running pressure is influenced by temperature and oil grade, but this should not vary dramatically.
It is best to attach a mechanical oil pressure gauge to the engine and in that way, you can read the exact pressure. If the mechanical gauge reads the same or very close to what you see on the dash, then the reading is correct and if low you will need further diagnosis to determine why.
