Question about 1992 GMC Sierra
Just recently my oil pressure seems to have been dropping a little bit but i didnt think to much of it until on my way the oil press. was at about 10-15lbs and while on the freeway and as soon as i got off the freeway the gauge srarted to jump all over the place to 5lbs press,then to 0lbs then to 30lbs then to 5lbs then 20lbs then 0lbs again and the truck started to run kind of funny, engine chittering and check gauges light would come on with decrease of oil press. then go back off with increase of pressure.

To start, take the vehicle to a dealer and ask them to screw an oil pressure gauge into the block hole and check your oil pressure whilst idling and while driving it.
I have a 1993 and it does the same thing, but the problem is only the gauge itself.
If it is actually having such oil pressure fluctuations, you may have a defective pump, a clogged pump filter screen, or a clogged oil filter.
God bless your efforts.

the whine is probably a bad bearing in the alternator or a idler pulley you can take off belt and crank up for a few seconds to see if noise goes away.if it does then it is in one of the pulleys i have seen a lot of these alternators make noise. your oil pressure will go up some when you rev up

Replace the oil pressure switch, unless you apply an external switch to verify the gauge itself, but in many many cases, the switch is defective.
