YOUR ANSWER WILL MOST LIKELY BE A ''NO'' THE ''OIL'' SENDING UNIT DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE FUEL. (JUST OIL) THE JOB OF THE SENDING UNIT IS TO LET THE DRIVER KNOW THE HOW THE LUBRICATING SYSTEM IS WORKING.EX. LOW OIL PRESSURE ,OIL LEVEL IS LOW, HIGH OIL PRESSURE ETC THE SENDING UNIT WILL SENSE THE "CHANGE" IN THE LUBRICATING SYSTEM AND TURNS ON THE OIL LIGHT IN THE DASH BOARD.

You don't have a carb on that vehicle, it is throttle body fuel injected.

Try cleaning throttle bore and plates

Plugged fuel, air filter, or catalytic converter can cause that.

The fuel level sending unit in the tank is probably at fault.

The ignition module that is in the distributor is probley bad.

The engine needs fuel, compression and spark to run. You are missing one of those.

There is no idle adjustment. The idle is controlled by the ECM. You may have vacuum leaks causing incorrect idle speed. The gasket between the throttle body and the intake manifold was known to blow out and cause a vacuum leak.

There are a variety of issues that can cause the tail lights to stop working in a 1993 Chevy S-10 pickup. There may be a blown fuse, a damaged wire, or the bulbs may be burned out.

A faulty ect (engine coolant temperature) sensor can do that.

This requires a special socket to fit the sending unit. Using pliers may damage the unit and cause an oil leak. The unit is located in back of the engine , on top, just to the drivers side of the distributor.

Could be spark in the motor, or the distributor and rotor need to be replaced.

what would cause a oil pressure gauge to fluctuate on my 99 Chevy truck silverado i change the sending unit it does it mostly after it warmed up

A bad idle air control sensor or a bad throttle position sensor.

A bad TPS might cause the engine to not fire up during cranking. But not crank? Nope.

Misfire is usually caused by faulty spark plug wires or spark plugs or both. I don't see the throttle body causing misfire.

Probably either the sending unit or a loose connection.

User Avatar

The engine coolant temp sensor can do that. If you have a check engine light on, have the codes read.

The fuel filter. The fuel pressure regulator. The electrical plug/wiring at the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay located in the glove box. The oil pressure sending unit.

My 2006 Colorado had the same message shortly after I bought it. It turned out to be a short in the throttle body.
