I drove a friends 97 C5 Automatic today. I noticed the oil gage was pegged at 80 PSI and the DIC said 129 PSI :jawdrop:

I pulled over and turned the car off. The gage dropped to 0. Then with the ignition on and engine off I got the same readings.
We drove a few miles & went in to look at some new C6s.

When we came out gage was at 0. Turned the ignition on and gage want to 80, & the DIC began climbing and went to 129 in 30 seconds or so.

Anyone had this on a C5 before? Just a bad sending unit I hope? :z:

Typical problem--seen dozens of them fail--intake manifold has to be removed for replacement.

Has anyone replaced the sensor for the oil pressure gage and the oil pressure on the DIC? 1997 C5

Z11409 said it is under the intake manifold. I called a dealer to see if he had one and he said it is at the top back of the block where the distributors used to be located. :-?

I found a great diagram showing exactly whereit is on the top back drivers side of the block. I see what you mean as I can't even see it on my car.

Would it be possible to replace it if you took the fuel rail off and some of the other stuff that is in the way? :-?

Just hoping-- :cry:

It is a friends car & she is going to sell or trade and get a C6 :coo:

But I could use an extra 100 hp for my car if you have some laying around. :D
