One of the biggest culprits that causes low oil pressure is engine sludge. Especially when it builds up on the pick up tube in the oil pan. Do you want to be proactive when it comes to keeping the sludge out of your engine. Changing your oil every 3000 miles is a good start. Even if synthetic oil starts to look dirty it's a good idea to change it. This video shows an effective method on how to get the grit out of your engine. Hope you enjoy the video.
In this video I show you how I easily removed and replaced the fan clutch and water pump on my Chevrolet Trailblazer with the 4.2L 6-cylinder engine. The water pump bearing and pulley had a bad wobble. The bearing in the water pump was worn out. There was a loud squeaking noise coming from the water pump pulley...or so I thought. Removing the fan clutch nut is fairly easy if you use a fan clutch wretch tool set. I rented one from Autozone for $100. Another step that helps speed up the process is "hacking" a small notch in the fan shroud to compensate for the radiator tube for the upper radiator hose. It's a bit of a hillbilly work-around, but hey, it works. Overall, it seemed like a daunting task, but with the proper tools and a little ingenuity, the removal and replacement wasn't bad at all!

Continuing from the last video - In order to prove that the oil pressure gauge lies, we need to be able to test the actual oil pressure. The service manual says that you need a special tool to do it. Here, I'm trying to save a cool $100 by not buying the special tool. But, in order to be fair, I bought the special tool to confirm that this method will give the same results, and to further prove that the oil pressure gauge in the truck is a made up number. Part 3 coming soon!

In 2003, though, it was time to revamp their offering and unfortunately for them, and their customers, they came up with the Saturn Ion. 9. Chevrolet Citation The Citation is often thought of as the biggest mistake ever by GM, and it started out so well! The X-car was released in 1980 and was so popular at the time that Chevrolet couldn’t keep up with demand. 8. Austin Allegro The Austin Allegro was produced by British car manufacturer “Leyland” in the 1970’s, and it went down as one of the worst cars the notoriously shambolic company would produce. 7. Vauxhall Frontera The Vauxhall Frontera was first sold in 1989 as one of the first crossover SUV’s. It was designed in a partnership between GM and Isuzu, and in America was known as the Isuzu MU- which stood for “Mysterious Utility”. 6. 1975 Trabant Usually known for their precision engineering, someone clearly didn’t get the memo when they were designing this car when the country was still split into East and West. 5. Reliant Robin When you think of a car, there are certain things you don’t expect to see- three wheels being one of them. 4. Davis Divan Next on the list is another three wheel car, this time made by the Davis motorcar company of California between 1947 and 1949. They were built in a hangar at Van Nuys airport, and were 183.5 inches long and 60 inches high. 3. Yugo GV The Yugo GV, as it was known in the US, was a Yugoslavian-built three door hatchback, that sold almost 150,000 units across America between 1985 and 1992. 2. 1989 Eagle Premier When you first see the Eagle Premier, it looks like any other basic car of the 80’s. It has a chunky design and and a boring color, so what makes it so bad? Well, it’s not so much what it does,, but what it doesn’t. 1. 2001 Pontiac Aztek You might recognize this car- it was the one used by Walter White in Breaking Bad. But even being a part of television history can’t make the Aztek any less worse.

After an initial diagnosis of low oil pressure with a manual pressure gauge in my 2004 GMC Envoy (~255,000 miles), I decided to investigate the oil pickup tube. Come to find out, it was about 90% clogged!
In this Part 1 video, I start the process of accessing the oil pickup tube. It was a pretty involved process and took me 4 weekends to complete. Hope this is helpful to you. Stay tuned for future installments.
