My oil pressure gauge shows lower readings?

Asked by Jan 04, 2014 at 04:08 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT1 1500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My oil pressure gauge has always been between 40-60. Recently it has a tendency to
drop after driving for several minutes to 5-20 psi. It even has hit zero while driving down
highway. No loud engine noises were heard at these times.

Are you due for an oil change? If so, change it and see what happens. Could be a faulty oil pressure gauge or gauge sending unit as well. HTH. -Jim
