Low oil pressure (gauge is showing low pressure), small leak...but not losing oil fast or "dumping oil". Knocking noise in the engine. When you look at the engine, there is oil on the drivers side of the engine...also, knocking seems to be on that side. Thoughts? Just bought the truck and I love it...but this has me worried. Hope it's not a "replace the engine" fix! Thank you!

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 2006 Dodge 1500 Big Horn PU with with MDS fuel saving 5.7 liter engine. It has 54,000 miles on it. The check guage light came on twice in the last two months & the oil pressure guage indicated NO oil pressure. I was coming up to stop light so I put the car in neutral & restarted the engine and it showed normal oil pressure. In the last couple of months the engine seems to pulsate while traveling at low speed (25-30 MPH). Are these 2 problems related? I suspect computer problem.

After a smog check that involved a temperature sensor replacement, I began experiencing a low oil pressure warning when I tried to start the engine. The oil was low and I added oil. This seemed to stop the issue but it has now happened again. The oil was once again low, I added oil but it took longer for the engine to turn over but eventually did. Any ideas what might be wrong?

My 1996 olds aurora low oil pressure alarm goes on when my engine speed is below 1000 rpm. I had the oil filter changed and installed Penzoil 20W50 oil in hopes it would control this until I found out what the story is. So far, it is working pretty good. The oil pressure now runs up to about 100psi cold, drops to about 70 psi when warm but varies a lot driving. I have been told this is a low pressure oil system that runs about 20 psi normally, but I never checked it while it was running well. I


100 psi is to much and will blow the seals in the motor.You need to find out what the oil pressure is suppose to be and if it is to low then replace the oil pump. ... 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

The RED LIGHT low oil pressure comes on and off The dash board display flashes STOP,The engines full of clean oil at the right level. how can i test the oil pressure??? do i have to the engine flusheding??? or it's the oil pressure switch? Thank you


DO NOT DRIVE IT.try an oil pressure switch first and if no better,worry,the minimum will be a new oil pump....(if you drive it and it is the pump, you will need a new engine.....) ... Volkswagen Passat

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger. I got the oil changed last Saturday and then Sunday night, the car shut down after the oil pressure light came on. The mechanics at two different shops said it was the oil pump. Now there is a ticking sound coming from the engine as well and they tested the oil pressure and it is low. they recommended that I have the engine rebuilt or buy another engine! My car has 102,000 miles on it


Kind of odd that two shops want to give up on your engine so easily. Remove the oil filter and see if you have more than one gasket on it .If not try a new oil pump Did you notice if the car was started with no oil in it,when it was changed?? ... 2006 Dodge Charger

I have a 1992 El Dorado. It runs like a TOP! It has just over 182,000 miles. I took it for an oil change and now, at low idle, the "LOW OIL PRESSURE / STOP ENGINE" comes on. I took it back and the mechanic replaced the oil pressure sensor, a thermostat (different issue) and the oil filter housing as it had a slight crack. Now, the light STILL comes on and the mechanic told me "not to worry" as the pressure with a guage is at 30 lbs and the minimum acceptable is 11....suggestions??


I would check the wiring between the oil pressure sensor and the computer. The computer is reading low or no pressure, hence the warning light. If your mechanic is telling the truth about the pressure and the pressure sensor is good, that is the on ... 1992 Cadillac Eldorado

Oil pressure is fine until engine warms up. Oil pressure drops very low and the light begins to flicker at idle. Later at idle oil pressure drops to zero and comes up upon increasing the RPM's. Oil pump and screen have been replaced 3 times. Should I consider engine rebuild?


There are 2 things you should try first. First thing to do is get a compression test done. I suspect it will be low, thus indicating a lot of wear. The other thing to do is upgrade your oil to a heavier one, at least 15W40 or maybe 20W50. This should ... 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

Why is showing low oil pressure and stop engine on dash board i have low oil pressure and it reads stop engine


Check your oil. If it is low, top it off and see if the light goes out. If your oil is full, have your oil pressure checked. ... 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

When I start my 1988 VW Cabriolet with a cold engine, the BAR gauge shows the oil pressure pegged to the right. After the engine heats up, the oil pressure indicated drops under 2 if I am at 2000 to 2500 rpm, and the low oil pressure light comes on along with the warning buzzer. If I increase the rpm to 3000 or more, the reading on the BAR gauge increases and the warning light and buzzer go off. Any thoughts on what's going on?

While i'm idling at a dead stop, the oil pressure drops down really low and the Computer reads "oil pressure low" "stop engine".does this sound like a oil pressure switch? it's fine while driving. (2002 Bravada)


Have the oil pressure tested with an accurate mechanical gauge. often the sending unit goes bad, but without testing it could cost you an engine before you find the problem.If the mechanical gauge shows same low readings, you have internal engi ... 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada

2006 H2, 113K miles. DIC indicated Low Oil Pressure at idle. No engine noise, seems to run fine. Happens only at idle. Pressure gage rises correctly while accelerating, at steady speeds oil pressure steady no drops. At idle oil pressure drops normally and stays steady.

My 1989 Ford Ranger 2.3L 2wd has a problem in the oil pressure area. The pressure gauge at idle says normal but when accelerating it goes past Low. I replaced the pressure sending unit and it didnt change the way the gauge works. The oil is brand new and the engine isnt making any noises like it has low pressure. What can I do?


I would take the sender out and install a temporary manual gauge (we use a manual SW gauge connected to a 3' length of 1/4" high pressure hose). If the oil pressure is normal on the manual gauge then about the only thing left is the gauge itself. ... Ford Ranger
