Need a little help Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the Mechanic to go over that information regarding your car. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know? Start 2014 Chevy suburban oil pressure indicates between 20 and 40. After driving 20 to 30 miles oil pressure starts dropping to the point the oil pressure light comes on. Pull over, give the [engine](/topics-engine-chevy/) a few minutes to cool and restart the engine, oil pressure indicates between 20 and 30. Checking oil level and the engine has oil.

I’m very sorry that you’re having this issue and together, we will get this figured out. I will need your help too because I can’t see, touch, hear or smell anything that’s going on with your vehicle. We may also require some specialized testing tools in order to assist us in diagnosing the problems due to the complexity of today’s vehicles. JA will offer a phone call to you at an additional fee, it’s your choice. Please be patient with my replies, I reply back in question order received. If I send you an attachment, I will tell you, BUT, you will NOT get it on a phone; you must be on a tablet or PC. Please let me know when you are satisfied with my answers too so we can close out your question. Check for any sludge build up in the oil. Look under the oil filler cap, that's the easiest way. Next would be to check the oil pressure with a gauge. Last is to check the gauge for accuracy. Thanks agani and all the best:) Ron

Thanks Ron. There is sludge under the cap. Not a lot but there is some. My family and I are at a gas station about 50 miles from home with a trailer.
Automotive Expert
You're welcome, thank you too. That's not too far as long as the level is full and the engine isn't making any noises. You should be okay to drive 50 miles, but that's your choice to make. Thanks again and best of luck. Ron

The engine has oil and seems to be running smoothly.Do you recommend pulling over when oil light comes on and restarting which turns off the light?
Automotive Expert
Sounds like you're good to go. When you get home, do a complete engine oil flush. YES, if anything happens while driving, pull over. Let sit about 15 minutes. Thanks again and be safe:) Ron

Thank you
