    New to forum and had my silverado all of 3 weeks now and it's been in the shop for over a week. Long story short, let my family borrow it to tow the horse trailer down to a show in Charleston and get a call on the way that the oil pressure light is on and the pressure was at 0. Told them to press the Onstar button to see if they could help and they told them to keep going. Got the truck to the dealer down in Charleston (they've been pretty helpful and keeping me informed) and they said there was a service bulletin out about the oil sending units and pressure gauges. Anyways, local dealer had not heard of this bulletin, but replacing both seems to be the fix. Will find out on Monday as they are sending a driver to go get it. Anyone else had this problem?

    I know they've had probs with the sending units & the stepper motors for the guages, but hadn't heard about the guages themselves being an issue.

    I just bought a 2011 Silverado 1500 LT Crew cab and the oil pressure shows between 35 and 39 psi at 70 mph. I am not sure if this reads correct. I have no oil pressure light on so far.

    Low Oil Pressure


    Seems very low to me, I have a 2011 Silverado 1500 with the 5.3 and it is the same way. I have only had it for 2 weeks. Anyone know what the oil pressure should be? It was much higher on my 2002 even after 165K miles.

    I am new here so thanks for any help.

    Hi Tricia,

    What should the oil pressure be on a 2011 with a 5.3. (2 weeks old) At Idle and at 70mph?
