2015 silverado oil pressure

Yeah, lots of new cars just have the gauge sit in the middle.  Time to bring back idiot lights.   Any oil pressure at all is good.  The truck will warn you if it gets low.  Let it do its thing.  


I remember my jeep had a idiot light but in gauge form.  When started the gauge would move to the middle.  And then it would never change.  And your engine oil pressure does change as it heats up and depending on engine speed.  I guess Jeep was looking for a way to make the vehicle seem more fancy than it was.

Ford has done it for ages with their oil pressure gauges.  It's not a pressure transducer.... just a switch.  You either have or you don't have lol.  GM's gauges actually work and follow what the transducer sends for feedback.  My 17's dash gauge reads exactly what the scanner picks up for oil pressure so it's not bad.  They can be miles out though too lol.
