Got word from the dealership yesterday. They checked the engine and have excellent pressure. So they say its the sensor.
So they ordered 1 yesterday morning. They check the area and no one had it in stock. So they ordered from Woodstock, Ontario. This morning they found out Woodstock doesn't have it either. So they ordered from somewhere else.
I stopped into a dealership close to my work this morning. They have 2 instock. This dealer is about 45 minute drive from where my car is.
Am i missing something?? Wouldn't it be more efficient to get from this dealer location?
Hopefully my car is done today. If the part doesn't come in on time, then i am looking at Thursday.

i would bet its still an oil pump issue,, even tapping on the timing cover can sometimes free the stuck pressure valve in the pump,, probly just the rattling around from the tow truck to the dealer was enough to free the valve,, it will probly stick again.

I have a few questions for you guys that have had an oil pressure problem.
-how often are you changing your oil?
-what oil filter are you using?
-is this isolated to 2010 models or have 2011 models been plagued with this too?
-are you using synthetic oil and are you using 5w30?
-do you baby your car or drive it spiritedly?

If you don't want to answer these questions on the open forum, please pm me
. I'm worried about myself having a problem and since I tuned my car before I even found out via this forum that dealers are voiding warranty because of it. And I might trade this thing in before 10k miles and stay away from chevy because of it. I've had 9 brand new Honda vehicles and never had to worry about a warranty issue because Honda takes care if their customers no matter what. I'm sorry but I don't want to be wrenching on my brand new car and having to change an oil pump because of a factory defect and the dealer being lazy and pointing the finger at my tune....so give me your input guys if you don't mind.

So in a nutshell, you drive your car easily? Any others? I drive normal alot, but it's to the floor more than three times per trip to and fro work.

My question is...have any 2011's had this problem, because, being the astute observer of the obvious, only 2010 SS's have had this issue. No 2011's have chimed in. I'm at 8500 miles right now. DD'd in LA traffic, and only 20 passes down the 1320 right now. Zero issues with my car, except for driver inflicted curb rash on the left rear wheel.

Had it towed to the dealer, but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? The car still starts/drives, just throws that code and the oil pressure gauge reads all the way left (zero).

I checked the oil, it had plenty of oil too.

Thanks in advance for your input everyone.
Dingo and Silentsoul, what are your VIN numbers? I also have a 2010 with low mileage. TIA!

Finally a customer with a brain, thank GOD. I am in the same boat. Just got my L99 2011 SS and oil gets changed by me every 3000 to 3500 miles. No tune in my car at this time. Chevy take notice, this is an issue that can leave a customer on the highway between towns 100miles apart. Let's see ONSTAR help me when some goonie comes running out of the trees with a butcher knife for a CAMARO SS owner with a busted oil pump. I am also thinking of trading this car and staying away from CHEVY. They void warranties at every issue just to keep money, time, and parts this is all saves gets them less in dept. financially. I know the recession hurt us bad, but that is no reason to screw customers. If the mod ruined the part damaged I agree upon voiding warranty, but if the part was a manufacturer defect the replace it. Mustang GT 5.0 owners don't have this crap to worry about, just my 0.2 cents. Push come to shove that's where I'll be.

I had this same issue and GM immediately voided the warranty and refused to even diagnose. I replaced the oil pump with a Melling pump, fired the car back up and have not had any issues since.

I would encourage EVERYONE that is considering a tune to have your oil pump replaced under warranty BEFORE you tune. As others mentioned, there is a TSP for this issue and GM will void your warranty if you have a tune.

Mine was the sticking relief valve and I would be willing to bet that Dingos was as well...and as someone mentioned...a little knocking about loosened his up. If it's happened once, it will likely happen again...just hope your sensor notifies you in time and you stop your car in time before you have catastrophic damage.

If you are opening up the front of the motor (cam), replace your oil pump, timing chain, and tensioner...three relatively inexpensive preventative items that could save you big $$$ in future repairs...

Got stuck over the weekend with a low oil pressure light. I was a quart low of oil for some reason. I only have 3900 miles on my 011 SS. Added the quart and it didn't make a difference. Personally had my car towed out my on pocket to my house since I broke down 90 miles away and OnStar only allows a tow to the dealer closest to where I broke down.

I just got a call from OnStar stating that my car was picked out a minute ago to be delivered to my local dealer.

Hopefull it is just the sensor also.

Thank you for the kudos lionssfan. Like the lady said, you can send me your information and I'll do what I can for you. I hope this helps. rasputinkiller, how is your vehicle doing? Has your dealer been able to take a look at it yet or get back to you on what might be the problem with it? Thank you for your time.

Wow, talk about timing! I bought a 2011 SS (L99) 3 months ago. New Corsa catback arrives tomorrow and I was trying decide between Vector and Jannetty for the tune. Then this morning I get an Oil Low warning message. Dipstick shows very low too. After work, no warning. I added a quart for good measure, but still low on the dipstick. It only has 4700 miles on it. I haven't even gotten the first oil change. What gives?

My local dealer got authorization from GM to drop the oil pan. Very likely a bad oil pump. They let me have a car rental so I rented a V6 Camaro that my wife now drives to work. But very bummed this happened. Better now than later I guess but I looks like this has become a trend... It would be very expensive for GM if it becomes a recall.

I told them. I wasn't hiding anything and wanted to make sure that it was clear that I was ready and willing to accept responsibility for any failure that was unrelated to the TSB for the oil pump.

My warranty was voided without anyone actually looking at my car.

So much for honesty. Voided as in any GM service center (permanent record)? Any job...or just this job? I was told by the dealer that they would only void by the job on a case by case basis.

It was a decision made by the GM regional rep, supposedly. I never received any communication from GM directly and a request to appeal directly to GM was denied and they would not provide me the name or contact information for the individual that made the decision. How's that for awesome customer service and accountability?

My opinion of GM's customer service and or commitment to customer loyalty? It's deplorable. I can not recall a situation in which I've been a considerable amount of money (>10k) in which the vendor was less focused on addressing customer needs and/or issues. That type of service does not lend itself to driving customer satisfaction or customer loyalty. I'm not terribly upset (or surprised) that they permanently labeled my powertrain warranty as void...what I am upset by is that they were will to effect such a considerable decision without any discussion, follow up, or communication with the customer. That behavior is SHAMEFUL.

I spose i'll give Becky a call on monday and set up an appt. for an oil pump. Man do we learn as we go with this car or what? Haven't had any problems myself, no cel or low pressure warning. Cars been modded- cam, intake, headers, you name it (for over a year now) so i guess it's just a matter of time.
