Oil pressure on 2012 Silverado 1500

Asked by Jun 07, 2017 at 05:43 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I first start my start oil pressure is fine at 40psi. But
after it heats up and I stop at red light it drops down to the
line between 0 and 40. Now the motor taps a little but still
runs perfectly fine. What could my issue be? The oil
pressure gauge use stay right at 40 for about 3 years.

Normally oil pressure on chevy is 25 or better. If it makes you feel better. I would change it. If oil pressure dropped you would definitely know it in a chevy.

Thank you. I just did the oil change on it right after it started doing it and I was gonna see if it stopped but it didn't so I just wanted to make sure.
