Asked by Dec 18, 2015 at 09:44 AM about the 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe 2 Dr LS 4WD SUV

Question type: General

I am having a problem with my Chevy Tahoe when I
start the truck no it's oil pressure stays at 20 but
when I get on the pedal it goes down to zero and
when I gradually gain speed it goes up to 40 does
that mean my  fuel pump is going bad

When was your last oil change? EIther your oil is low, or there is a blockage. Either the strainer or the filter is really old. this has nothing to do with your fuel pump. Driveing it like this will kill the motor
