Just got this message today I noticed sitting at a light tht my oil pressure guage was near zero.. i said that is very low.. hmm.. i got to my parents house and started the car and immediatley got "Low oil pressure turn engine off"

I turned it off thinking it was maybe a glitch.. started the car up and heard some tapping.. i immediatley took the key out and called service.. thank god i was at my parents house and not on some road trip...

Is there a tsb out on this?

pump? sensor?

My GM Mechanic friend wrote this
The pcm wont disable the engine for a no oil pressure concern. It'll just sit there and ding at you and depending on the vehicle will display "NO OIL PRESSURE, TURN ENGINE OFF" in the DIC. Common problems on the 07 and newer V8's for low or no oil pressure: failed oil pressure sensor, plugged filter below oil pressure sensor (highly doubtful with only 3k miles, typically see this on higher mileage engines where they dont change their oil), or oil pump relief valve stuck wide open. I've seen all of these several times within the past couple years.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR. DO NOT RELY ON IT BEING INTERMITTENT. GET YOUR OIL PUMP REPLACED IMMEDIATELY.

I typed that in all caps for a reason...I got a call from another local friend who just had the same exact thing happen to him. To all those that said it's an isolated incident.... :P

Good luck...make sure to tape a piece of paper on your steering wheel that states DO NOT START - NO OIL IN ENGINE. You can also pull the starter fuse(can't remember which one it is...check the manual). You don't want someone at the tow company or the dealer doing something stupid.

Good luck!

unfortunately friends i also had this problem few days ago. I had my ips twin turbo installed by a good installer and tuner in south jersey. I live about 100 miles away. As I was driving I saw the oil pressure seem kind of low at idle but i though ehh, maybe its just a glitch. No glitch. I shut the car off in my drive way. 5 mins later I restart and whaalaa no oil pressure !!! I was furious. Never heard of this issue. I had to have the car towed 100 miles back to the tuner to get this fixed. The good part is i heard valve train noise for only a few secs. I wasnt driving or roughing the car up at all when it happened. So now I will do a cam swap and an oil pump upgrade. So more power more problems....shit never ends !

oh the fact that gm hasnt literally mailed, emailed, called, or expressed concern for this little issue which can actually kill a person, or their engine, is disgusting. Other then that the car is great. 2 fingers for GM not doing squat about this.

Hi all.
I had the same problem back in June. GM replaced the sensor.
I was at a track day last week. After 2 trips, i looked down and saw my pressure was almost at the red mark. I shut down the car, waited 10 minutes and started again. This time the needle was at zero. I started to panic. Checked the oil, was still full. Waited another 15 minutes and started again. This time my pressure was at about 1/4. Drove it back to our parking spaces. After this, all returned back to normal.
Mechanic says that there is a "screen" for the oil sensor. if anything gets caught in this, it effects the reading. This is their best guess about the problem. All is running well and strong.
I am glad i didn't need to tow my car again.

Dealership told me that it would be a day job to replace the oil pump.
They also mentioned to me joking, that maybe i should "do the cam" while it was all apart.

There is a tread about changing the oil pump, but i can't find it. Sorry

Thanx... i talked to a mechanic and he told me its about 8-10 hours to change the oil pump

So this failure happened to you twice ? First time you got an new sensor and now the problem is gone without changing the sensor again ?

Have you taken the vehicle to the dealership for diagnosis? I apologize for the inconvenience this may be causing you. If you want to PM me any details, I will definitely look into my resources to see if there are any options available to you.

Thanx but imfrom germany so i dont have warranty and i have to pay it all alone :(

The problem is that in august i got a new oil pump but this oil pump get broke again :(

I alwasy checked the oil and changed it early and always 5w30 Mobil 1

First damage was at 11000 km and now at 19500 km...my camaro is getting a nightmare :(

My dealer told me that it is only one oil pump he can buy at gm...part number is always the same, so he will repair my car with no good feeling cause it might happen again after a few weeks/months.

That sounds horrible to me :(

I think i have to buy a melling oil pump
