    oil pressure check?

    OK to start off I am at work right now and had this problem on the way in. Bonehead derived noise.. GTO's don't have oil pressure guages like fbods do so is there a quick way to test oil pressure on these cars? I'd really like to know whether or not I have pressure to know whether I should call a wrecker. I cannot remember offhand as well is the pressure sending unit (or plug) in the back of the block behind the intake?

    Oil press switch is behind the intake. Can be spotted better with the fuel rail cover off on the driver side.

    05s have a TSB. The LS2s burn oil from the factory. I have heard this is typically normal with the M6. Something about trans-braking causes the oil to go out the tailpipes.

    Well firstly whatever damage has been done has been done. Make sure you have the proper amount of oil and I would drive it. Get it to a shop and let them diagnose the damage.
