i have a 1964 impala with 327 with the same problem low to no oil pressure at idle but good other wise i tryed all of the addtives and heaver oils. this week i pulled my motor and my main&cam bearing are bad and i scored my crank real bad so you may want to consider checking it out.

If your pressure gauge is installed on top of the block, behind the manifold, it will read low at Idle because the presure is low at idle and it falls back into the oil pan, move your gauge and sending unit ti the back lower block area

I can help you with most standard type things from 1955 chevys up to around 1975 (1975)>> chevys in differnt areas. engine work heads-cams-trannys-drive train-brakes-some elect. dos and donts. PS UP TO 1975 !! !!!!!!!!!!! I will try with any others after that date. state up to 1975 but I still get 2006-007 etc. I guess you do not read this far ! !


All i can remember growing up is working on cars and making them loud and fast , and when i started to make money i would sink all of it into my cars so i could get them to go faster and look great. what else is there !I would love a challange to trouble shoot, as it is fun finding what is wrong when all others can not .ON the older cars not past 1975s , etc. so please I will try to help with the newer cars but do not grade me bad if I can not help your 2006 car.etc.
