2001 Chevy Silverado NO OIL PRESSURE

Asked by Jun 11, 2017 at 03:26 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Extended Cab SB 4WD

Question type: General

I was driving along in my 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 with
the 5.3 v8 when all of a sudden my oil pressure dropped
to 0. The motor has ran stong with no issues what so ever.
When it lost pressure it started tick and lope. I limped it
home a half mile and shut it off. I checked the oil and it
was full. I replaced the oil pressure sensor and it's still
doing the same thing. Is it the oil pump? And if it is,
should I take the time to replace it if it's already damaged
my motor? Or is there another option? PLEASE HELP

Thanks, Travis.
