Hello there, I am Cam.

I am Licensed technician at a GM dealership with more than 16 years experience. 
Like you, I am a user of this website and as such, any billing questions should be sent to customer service.

I ask that you please provide details and communicate with me so we can make your experience here worth 5 stars! I am around most days but not every minute of every day. If you reply while I am offline, I will respond when I am next online. 

I am reviewing your request and will post in a moment.

Do you get any warnings about your oil pressure when it reads low?

Doesn't really read low all the time it just bounces back and forth. It stopped working completely the other day so I took the cluster out and put it back in and it worked fine

Ok, I think that will answer this for me. With it not reading and you having no messages, this is a stepper motor failure in the cluster. The small electric motors that move the needles are prone to failure in this vintage of truck.

the repair is to replace or repair the cluster. There are MANY sites that will replace the stepper motors and rebuild your cluster. usual cost is around 200.

If this was a failure of a sensor you would get pressure warnings.
