4 posts in this topic

it's been a few weeks since this problem showed itself. my oil pressure gadge is stuck on 80psi. a friend of mine said that it happened to his and was just the sensor and it will start leaking soon. can anyone point me to a diagram that showes were the sensor is located and is this something that is not to difficult to do my self or leave to a pro.

This just happened to me on my 03 Silverado 15000HD

The oil pressure sensor will read 80psi when it fails.

The part ran about $79 bucks from NAPA

It is located between the firewall and the top of the engine block behind the throttle body.

Pop off the electical connection and use a 1 1/16 deepwell socket to remove it.

Install the new one by hand and tighten it with the socket. reconnect the electical connection Job done.
