        Solves a Problem

            Comments about BWD Engine Oil Pressure Switch:

            Installed in a 1992 Chevy 1500. If you think your truck needs a new fuel pump try this first. Kind of a pain to get the old one out after 24 years, cut the old one off with a sawzall and backed out the threaded part with an easy-out. My kids truck would die at idle, apparently low oil pressure sends a signal to kill the fuel pump. A new oil pressure switch solved the problem.

                  I went against my own rule" if it isn't broke don't fix it. I had to remove the upper intake on my 454 to replace the fuel pressure regulator so I thought I would go ahead and replace the oil pressure sender since it had a 164,000 miles on it and was so difficult to get replace with the upper intake installed. I replace placed it along with the fuel pressure regulator,put it all back togeather. Stated the engine let it run, turned the key off and fuel pump kept running due to the pressure sending unit not dropping contact once the key was turned off and the oil pressure was gone. Replaced it with another send from Advance(warranty)and it worked good for about a week and my insturment warning light came on, I looked at the gauges and had low oil pressure and the engine would miss due to the fuel pump not running. Went to the Chevy dealer a bought the OEM now it works great.

                        product to replace is under distributor. this is not too easy to access. threads need proper thread sealant. care must be taken to avoid damage to the ICM/connector[s] etc.

                        after replacing this fixed the intermittent vehicle shut down . also corrected low oil pressure readings.[always low hot/cold]

                                I have a 1997 GMC Sierra 5.7 liter with 42000 miles on it. My oil pressure drops as the engine heats up. As I drive it starts at 60lbs and then drops to 40lbs when I stop it drops to about 20lbs and then comes up to the 40lbs level as I start driving. The oil level is full any ideas.

                                I have a 1993 gmc1500 4x4 with a 350 5 speed, Sometimes it will not start,it will just crank over. But I can spray started fluid in the air cleaner and it will start and run fine. Today it just stopped running going down the road, I pulled over and sprayed starter fluid and it took right off.
                                Someone told me I had water in the gas, but I put gas treatment in the tank my last fill up. So what should I do?

                                  The problem may be with a bad fuel pump which is in the fuel tank. You can even spray WD 40 into  the intake while cranking and many vehicles that are only missing fuel,will run (barely sometimes) as long as you continue to spray a little at a time. You will need to make sure there is plenty of gas in the tank and get your fuel pump tested by a certified mechanic.
