Wat does low oil pressure mean
Low oil preesure means that your probly getting low on oil. Check the engine oil only when the oil is cold for an accurate reading. I bet if you add some oil it will probly fix your problem
Low oil pressure does not mean low oil. Low oil pressure means the oil pressure is low and any number of things could be the problem. Most likely would be the oil pressure sensor is bad, next likely would be the oil pump is bad, or if the oil is that low to where it's not getting enough oil its because of 1 of 2 reasons 1. You're not doing the regular oil changes every 3000 miles or your engine is shot. No engine should ever burn through 3 quarts of oil in less than 3000 miles unless it's the Chrysler/Dodge 3.5 v6. Then its normal to add 3+ quarts between oil changes.
several possibilities.. 1. bad sensor 2. sludge in the oil intake 3. bad oil pump 4. engine oil pan has a severe leak(obvious) ..on an old 80 Grand prix, i had a a cooling system failure and the engine got heated. the oil broke down and clogged the oil intake. cleaned it & oil pan sludge, put it back together and it restored oil pressure. my 3.8L used only 1 quart in 3k miles at the most. it is a good idea to oil the new filter with some fresh oil before installing to help the oil pump keep lubed. hope all is well with your chevy.
