What should the oil pressure be on a 2010 Silverado?

This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. I have a 2010 Silverado 5.3L. At normal operating temp, the oil pressure is at 25-30 psi at idle. At crusing speed, 65mph (1500rpm) it is about 40 psi. Is this normal for the new truck, thought it might be higher?

What happens if your GMC Sierra has low oil pressure?

One of the most serious issues that can happen to your GMC Sierra ‘s engine is if it ends up with low oil pressure. Low oil pressure will cause the engine to seize up. When the oil pressure light on, it should be assumed that the engine locking up is imminent. We advise not running the engine until the issue can be properly diagnosed.

What should the oil pressure be in an engine?

Still, oil pressure is an important monitor of how well the engine oil is protecting the moving parts of an engine. Oil pressure will vary in most engines depending on whether the engine has just been started and the oil is cool or if the motor has run long enough to warm to normal operating temperature.

What causes an engine to lose oil pressure as it warms up?

The most likely cause of a car losing oil pressure when it warms up is a problem with the pressure relief valve, which regulates the oil pressure to ensure that there is enough pressure to circulate oil throughout the engine. When oil pressure is low, not enough oil is being distributed to the engine, potentially causing engine failure.

What should the oil pressure be in a GMC Truck?

When its started cold it reads 60, when its warmed up at cruising speeds of about 55-60mph it reads 40, but as soon as the RPMs drop when I coast, idle, or drive under about 10-15mph (warmed up) the pressure reads 20. Is this normal.. Sure doesnt seem right to me. Yep totally normal mine is the exact same readings using a synthetic 5w30 oil.

What’s the oil pressure on a 2010 Silverado?

I have a 2010 5.3L silverado. It has the 6 speed tranny in it. Just curious, I notice the oil pressure when warm is around 30psi, when driving at high speeds it is around 40psi. And when I step it down, it goes at it highest to 50-60 psi.

What should the oil pressure be at idle?

As it warms up, it drops at idle to just under 40 psi and goes to just under50 psi at normal road speeds and RPMs..so a drop of about 10 psi when it is warm at normal operating temps on average is what I have noticed.
