I have a 2008 5.3L Chevy Surburban that takes about 5-6 miles for the oil pressure to get up to around 45-50 lbs of pressure. When the engine
is temp is cold to cool the oil pressure is 30 to 35 lbs but increases as the engine warms up. Is this normal???
JA: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?
Customer: The oil pump is original equipment, I bought the vehicle new, it now has 190000 miles on it and the check engine light never has illuminated
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: No, I was wanting your input on, is this a problem with the engine??
JA: OK! The Chevy Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else the Chevy Mechanic should be aware of about your Chevy?
Customer: It has been a very good vehicle and as far as I know this is the only problem
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
