What is wrong with your Tahoe when low oil pressure lite goes on?

Either the oil pressure is low, or the oil pressure sensor is faulty, or the computer is sending the message without reason. Do-it-yourselfer can replace the oil pressure sensor. Look it up on a parts website like Rock Auto ( or Advanced Auto or similar site. Locate it on your vehicle. It will be screwed into the side of the engine with a wire coming out of it. Using a wrench, remove it and replace with a new one. If this does not stop the low oil pressure message, then one of the other two reasons are the culprit and a shadetree mechanic should not tackle either of these. Take it to a professional.
