Low oil pressure warning and noise when 1st starting 2008 Escalade

10

Asked by Mar 14, 2017 at 04:07 PM about the 2008 Cadillac Escalade AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 08 Escalade that hasn't been driven much in the last 6 months. Less
than 25 or 50 miles if even that. I do tryand start and let it run at least once a
week though. It has 180k miles (all Highway) from my job and I know for sure it
has been well maintained. Since its been setting,  when its cold or 1st started it
has a loud lifter(?) tick and almost always the low oil pressure warning/shut off
engine light comes on. Both the noise and light always go away within the 1st
minute or less if i tap the gas pedal. When using the remote start,  sometimes
the light will still be on when I get in the vehicle but the noise is gone and if i
shut off and restart the vehicle it is always gone.

Have you checked the oil level?
