Why my oil pressure is low

Asked by Brodytx8985 Feb 26, 2020 at 09:49 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Extended Cab RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 2012 chevy silverado 1500, just
change the oil pressure sensor and the small
filter there, and still have like 15psi oil
pressure. Wonder what should be the next
step to fix that. I have no engine light on.

They have had a batch of filter that the inside is sucking shut chandelier filter fix mine try that

Use a mechanical pressure gauge to verify the oil pressure. If it is really that low I suspect worn main bearings.
