Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi there. I am Cam. Can I get your first name please?I am sorry to hear about this issue. Can you tell me if you have checked the pressure manually with a pressure gauge?To skip ahead I have my doubts you have an engine issue, rather I think you have a bad oil pressure sensor and its worth looking at that. IT can be changed with little trouble. It is in a tight spot but you can get it. With a special socket you can get any part store, the sensor is threaded out from the back of the block just behind the intake manifold on the drivers side.Now if you measure the pressure and its low, then we need to look at the oil pump as your issue.
Toby, That depends on if you hear ANY noise, rattling or anything abnormal when this happens. If you answer no, then I would say based on that its ok, If you do then I am thinking it is not safe to drive.
