Have a 1999 Z71 chev truck with 5.3 L engine that has fluctuating oil pressure. Started with low oil pressure after start with engine clak that disappeared after it warmed up. Changed oil and found sludge in crankcase. cleaned as best we could and blew back through oil filter housing. Now engine shows ''0'' oil pressure after start for about 10 seconds then goes to mid range on gauge. After it warms up, oil pressure starts to drop and engine appears to labour intermittitently.


In some cases where the oil is not changed properly, the oil pump screen maybe plugging or your oil filter is defective. Fram is a good filter. If there is no problem found, replace the pressure sensor. ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I have a 2005 Buick Lesabre and just started having the oil pressure light come on and the pressure readings fluctuate wildly between 0 and 130. Car runs great and not making any weird noises. Oil level is fine and was planning on an oil change to be done this week as I am due. I have been reading other posting and sounds like a bad sensor to me..... I will have it looked at on Monday but was wondering what your thoughts were so I don't have a heart attack when I get the car checked. Thanks

Oil pressure gauge reads 0, until you accellarate. When you shut motor off, wait for awhile, check oil, oil level is good. Restart engine, pressure is good. Start down the road the gauge drops to zero, then climbs to 40, then back down again.


This really sounds like your oil pressure sending unit. You don't say what engine you have but check your oil make sure its full and clear you don't want to loose the engine over this and you should n't but check it.The unit threads into the block so ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a 1991 f150, 302 engine, e40D auto trans that is slow to upshift. It's worse in warm weather and when it does upshift, it shifts very hard. I have had it checked at a trans. repair shop.

2003 jeep grand cherokee 6cyl. Oil pressure drops as engine warms up.replaced sending unit, same. Checked with mechanic's pressure gauge and found out gauge on cluster is correct. Pressure drops below 5 when the engine is warm.Removed oil pan and found pickup screen was clogged by sludge.Replaced oil pump and screen, cleaned oil pan. Now pressure stays at 10 psi at idle when warm. However, it can not create pressure after start up, light stays on until you rev engine up and bring pressure close


The reason it differs from cold to hot is because your oil is thicker when cold, as the engine heats the oil thins a bit causing the drop. Good news is, you do not need but about 7psi at idle to keep the engine properly oiled. (to bring oil to the t ... 2002 Jeep Liberty

2001 Olds Aurora 4.0, 157,000 miles. After engine warms, the in-dash and auditible low oil pressure warning occurs when stopping for a traffic signal or stop sign. It immediately goes off when I resume higher rpms. When it first started two years ago, I switched to a high mileage 5W30 oil and the problem stopped. A couple of months ago, it started again. The problem is not related to low level and the high mileage oil is still being used. Engine uses only 1/2 quart between 3000 mile oil change

Just drove about 102 milles, got off the exit and as i started driving again my vehicle began to shake and the check engine light flashed on and off. i stopped and parked in a nearby lot,turning the engine off, waited a few minutes, then turned the engine on, the shaking began immediately. i checked the trans oil and the engine oil, both were fine. could this be a problem with the timing chain/belt? the car has never done this before and i have no idea.

I recently purchased a 2004 Kia Rio. It is in excellent condition. A week ago, before registering it, we had an inspection and oil change done. Everything runs great, there are no problems with this car whatsoever. Last night the check engine light came on after starting the vehicle and stayed on, for no apparent reason. Nothing has been done different, we checked all fluids, lines and anything that may make the light come on. We were told by other Kia owners that after an oil change, if t
