Hello, when is the last time you changed the oil and what kind of oil do you use?

does the engine make any noise? does temperature change it?

oil pressure sensor does not drop while car is sitting and running just when you drive it
Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

ok, so what if you put it in gear and brake torque it? also try wiggling the connection to the sensor, it could be just a wiring issue, if it were major i would expect it to do it at idle as well

ok,because motor doesnt change at all we light comes on
Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

yeah so the next step if wiggling the wiring does not change anything is to hook up a pressure gauge to the oil port and drive it with it to see if the pressure is actually doing that .

Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

ok, so now you need to get and hook up a pressure gauge in place of the oil pressure sensor.

to be perfectly honest i would have to say you have a bad gauge cluster. they are well known to go out on chevy vehicles. there is a place in concord california that repairs them you can send it to. the name of the place is speedotach in concord california. unless you have a place local to you that can repair clusters.
