    Be careful! Low engine oil pressure warning.

    Last Wednesday I cranked my car and got the, "Low Engine Oil Pressure, Shut off engine immediately" warning. I turned off the car and checked it to make sure it had plenty of oil which it did. I called the dealership and they thought it was more than likely a sensor, ensure it is full of oil and bring it in so they can check it out. I check the oil a second time and take off, listening to the engine for unusual noises.

    Initially, I was told it is not a sensor but the oil pump was going bad and would be replaced under warranty. I'm thinking, great I will have the car back in a week.
    Got a phone call today saying the entire engine now needs to be replaced due to the amount of metal found in the oil pan.

    Just wanted to say be careful if you get that warning. There is a Technical Service Bulletin out there that has about 10 GM vehicles on it that includes the V2's that says if customers complain of this warning it is probably a sensor. In my case, it wasn't.

    I'm assuming they are covering this all under warranty?

    Hello rekctsv,

    I apologize that in your case it wasn’t just a sensor that failed and that your engine will need replacing. I am glad that your service department did their due diligence and were able to locate the issue. Please continue to keep us updated and if you would like to discuss your concern further with us, feel free to private message us as well. Thank you very much for your time. We will be looking for your future updates.

    Re: Be careful! Low engine oil pressure warning.

    Wow, that's a bummer, it sounds like the car must be out of warranty too since it's a 2009, that sucks. I think that's poor advice that dealer gave, if I saw something like a light on I want to get a pressure gauge on the car before I ran the motor anymore.

    I don't know but will try to find out when I go back.

    Yes, all under warranty. Dealership has been great too. They have me riding in a 2014 Escalade and while I miss the V, I'm loving the Escalade. Kids want me to buy it.

    I bought it Certified Pre-owned with 35k on it so I can't speak on its history. It now has 50k and I have never taken it down the strip or been to a road course even though I would like to eventually. I took my V1 to a road course a few times.
