    Re: Oil pressure?

    okay thank you.
    Its just my car will not start- I get no action out of the starter, even with a new battery

    In a different post, something was mentioned about an oil related sensor not working- would not allow the car to start.
    In a couple other posts I read.. if my car fails to start, more than likely its the CPS (crankshaft position sensor).

    I have 12V power at the battery, and at the starter and alterntor; but the car will not turn over- I get nothing when the key is rockered to the ON position...
    (the oil/psi needle doesnt even move)...
    AND I dont know what to do or check next! Please assist.

    It could be a bad starter. I had the same problem a very long time ago, changed the starter and everything was back to normal.

    Re: Oil pressure?

    I don't know if the original poster will ever check this again but my 97 catera started doing this right before I noticed oil in my coolant and had to change the oil cooler. The needle didn't vary wildly when I first got it. So it's worth checking for oil in your antifreeze if you have a caddy from the 97 generation and the needle starts varying drastically.
