Item 103 top of the drawing rear of the engine block.
Or go to http://www.gmpartsgiant.com/ and bore down to your engine
cylinder block - - part number 12616646, $45.79.
My guess would be no, it has a large, locked connector and it is not
where it could be broken off. If it were not making a connection it
should be reading nothing.
I would have it fixed very soon, sometime before the engine goes. I
didn't dig through my manuals but oil pumps have a relief valve and if
it fails you can get very high/low pressure depending on how/what part
of it failed. Getting a reading without the engine running may still
be the relief valve or the sending unit.
What type/weight oil are you using and how often do you change it?
ok. i know on my c4 i had the wire to the water temp sensor get pulled
out of the connector, causing it to run really rough. i just stuck it
back in and held it in with duct tape until i could replace it.

I am still accessing repair options. It is not something I am willing to
I take it you do not have an "idiot light' as well for low oil pressure as
is the case for most Chevrolets. If not, I suppose losing oil pressure in a
C5 is something that can happen more frequently without warning -- oil pump
failure -- not common on most other automobiles. Trying a mechanic other
than the dealer may be the cheaper alternative.
Sorry about the delayed response. The delay is because I got a new iMac
and my NewsWatcher program will not run under the Mavericks OS X 10.9.
I am booted to an old backup drive to be able to access the newsgroups.
I fixed the 01 C5 problems by trading for a pristine 08 Black C6. It is
awesome and this one has a GMPP warranty for three years and 36K miles
on top of the 18k on the car.
Dad, I have appreciated your help and I think you have my email address.

It is a common cheap-ass C5 part failure.
There is a much simpler way to get to it under the plastic panel where
the windshield wipers rest. Ckeck this out-
