tried different oils and different filters, not much change in reading.
Still havent changed the sender yet or taken a manual reading.
Motor is still quiet, time will tell i guess.

5.3L Low oil pressure

2010 - Z71, 202,000 KM, mine was also showing low oil pressure, no ticking, to the point where it would throw a fault code. I picked up a new sending unit and socket at NAPA, just under $100.00, filled it up with new, synthetic oil, and, a new WIX filter, so far so good. Had a buddy do it for me, I had no time, took him less than an hour, but he remove the intake manifold, much easier, screen was a little dirty, but not bad.He also mentioned that Fram or the AC Delco do not do these engines any favors, Wix was the way to go. So far, needle is straight up the middle, and I have about 2,000 K since then.
Good luck

I have an 09 5.3 with 490,000km. The oil pressure has been an issue since about 130,000km. It would just randomly lose pressure. Replaced an oil pump under warranty, replaced sensor a few times as well. GM actually has a bulletin now for the 5.3 that many do not know about. The spec oil filter is no longer valid. An updated filter is now required to prevent oil pressure loss. It is a taller can, not sure of number. I have had to request my local dealer to install it during oil changes because they did not know. Great Canadian oil change actually uses them all the time.

Another issue that can creep up is the filter under the sensor. It can get plugged up.

I have also found that Valvoline max life is the only oil I can use as my engine has got older. Any other oil I am adding by 5000km. With the max life I can get to my regular oil change interval of 18,000 - 23,000 km by only adding a quart in between. It also raises my oil pressure.

Who would go 18 to 23000 k between changes. I bet your oil pressure increases, as it would be like grease.

I do go that long as that is what the oil life monitor dictates. I thought it was crazy at first too but GM begged to differ.

Also it is a misconception that that your oil gets thicker with time. It actually gets thinner as gas starts to dilute it. Your oil pressure will drop as the viscosity is lost.

Fact is I have been changing my oil at these intervals since new and the truck is still used as a daily driver. The motor and transmission are original and never been touched. It has over 100,000k of pulling 7k lbs trailers as well from Manitoba to Texas and beyond. So the proof is there. Oil changes are over done. Follow the oil life monitor and make sure you have oil and it will take care of it's self. Changing tranny fluid every 130,000k also has been a winner for me on all my trucks. Have yet to touch a motor or transmission in over 1.5mm km.

What year is yours?

The oil life monitor is not a clock. It is calculated based on cold starts, engine load, engine hours, idle time.

If you drive city all the time it could drop as low as 5000k. If you drive highway it will be 20k+.

When towing lots mine will want to change at about 7000km.

That said model years have been different. Our 14 6.2di tops out at 13000 km roughly. I think pre 2009 the olm was soley km based. It was not smart like they are today.

Anyways, whatever the case, my 5.3 has been around the earth over 12 times using this practice and the motor and tranny are untouched.

I do 15-20,000 on all my vehicles........well two are diesels and thatís whatís called for and one gasser also runs synthetic and thatís what itís rated for. I also use good filters rated for synthetic.
Costs more initially but Iím not underneath every 5000km

Why take chances? Isn't a $50 oil change cheaper than an engine? Just my thoughts..

Iíd agree with that. Prob $100 for halfton and $200 for semi. My halfton gets oil at 5k no matter what. Semi gets it at or around 20k. I know people that run 30 but I donít see a point. I notice at 20 the oil can start to seep from some connections it normally wonít which means itís thinned out and not providing protection like it should. While 490km is impressive I doubt the engine is in the shape it should be.

Just some quick math on that...

If I did oil changes every 5000 km and round my odometer from 490,000k to 500,000k @~$100 a change that works out to $10,000. Running my changes to 23,000k I have only spent $2,200 on oil changes. So the oil changes at 5000k are not cheaper than a motor replacement. It has saved me a lot of money over the years and my truck is still running strong.

Your 1 person who has put 490 on a vehicle. And in this case nothing bad has happened apparently. Keep Rollin the dice with your oil changes. Maybe youíll be lucky maybe you wonít. Keep in mind it would take you 500 km to break even lol

Keep buying gm and you wonít notice any power loss either lol

Yup so far so good. My wife's 14 silv with 6.2di follows same practice and so far so good. My 17 f150 Ecoboost is also getting same treatment. The olm on it pushes 22,000 km as well on highway.

That new gm 6.2di though. OMG is that an awesome motor. Man it has so much power and so good on fuel. Jealous that it is my wife's truck. First truck we have ever owned that we do not want to trade off for something newer.

The buying gm comment was a poke lol gutless to begin with

So does ford tell you to change your oil at 23k?

I imagine if you have any issue they prob say your sol with that kind of maintenance.

Strictly off the oil life monitor. The manual says to change based on the olm. So I do.

The gm 5.3 are pretty gutless. Get job done but always wanted more power out of my 09. In 14 we looked at the Ecoboost cause I loved the turbo power. But after testing the new 6.2gm was sold on it. The power is really good and stronger than the Ecoboost. Towed much better and the fuel economy is rediculous in the 8.3-11 l/100k range on highway. This motor is no joke. Couple that with the 3.73 rear end and the motor just lugs along with no effort. Just pulled our SAN G23 home last night from lake into crazy winds and could not even feel the boat. My f150 just does not like a trailer. Really disappointed with that. The older 15 models seemed to pull so much better but this 17 is almost scary with a load behind it.

Iíd be looking into actual ford warranty or their tri star Bs whatever it is. 8.3l -100km? Iíd have to call Bs on that. Even 11.
8.3 is 34.4 mpg our car gets that. Think 11 is around 26mpg. No experience with that motor but Iíd still say thatís highly unlikely to have an avg that high on a motor like that.

I know of one truck that will get over 30 running hwy and thatís a family member ram 2wd with the pentastar v6. An itís low to the ground.

Couple of screen grabs. Hard to believe I know and really not until you actually get in one and see for your self. It is a mind blower for alot of people that gets in the truck on our sled trips or road trips.

It is for real though.
