Oil pressure sensor for 09 Chevy Silverado 1500

Asked by Jan 14, 2017 at 02:20 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A buddy of mine got his truck stuck in some
mud the other night and I had to yank him
out, today my truck is showing that I'm
getting no oil pressure when I get at about
50-60mph. Any idea if me yanking my buddy
out could have caused this?

No pulling him out did not do this. There is a screen under the oil pressure sending unit that has to come out and get cleaned or replaced. You might as well replace the oil sending unit also since it is out. So the screen gets gummed up and doesn't allow the oil sensor to read the correct oil pressure.
