2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Q&A

2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Question: WHY IS THE OIL PRESSURE GAUGE PAST THE HIGH MARK.

WOULD IT BE THE GAUGE. CAR RUNS FINE. -
Answer 1
LS? SS? 3.4? 3.8? OH WELL EITHER WAY FIND AND UNPLUG OIL PRESSURE SWITCH,OR SENDING UNIT NEAR OIL FILTER, GAUGE SHOULD NOW READ 0 WITH KEY ON. IF NOT COULD BE SHORTED WIRE OR BAD GAUGE. CAN SCAN OR HAVE B.C.M. SCANNED TO CHECK DASH CLUSTER. B.C.M. = BODY CONTROL MODULE. GAUGES DO GIVE TROUBLE! ONE MORE THING, DOES THE GAUGE MOVE AT ALL? AT ANY TIME KEY ON OR OFF. -
Answer 2
most likely the oil sending unit is malfunctioning -
Answer 3
check oil pressure with gauge....too high = restriction in oil galley...normal = bad sensor or wiring. -
