If its showing no pressure you need to check the oil. If the oil is okay, remove the pan and check the oil pump. The same thing happened to me and my oil pump had fallen off

Check oil pressure with manual gauge, check when cold and see if pressure drops as it heats up to normal operating temperature, you may be due for a new engine at 240k miles

My gauge is pegged at 80psi, sometimes when I hit a bump it'll drop to 0psi and my dash will chime low oil pressure then it'll go back to being pegged at 80. When the ignition is off its at 0 start it immediately go to 80.. ??????

These oil pressure issues with Chevy engines come up just about everyday on Car Gurus. I would install an aftermarket mechanical oil pressure gauge so I knew what the oil pressure really is.

Thanks F.O.R. I'm a newbie on this site so I didn't know this was an everyday question lol. Where is the oil sending unit?

Just replace oil sending unit. It's located on top of the engine block between intake manifold and firewall on driver's side. U'll need an 1 1/16" socket to remove it
