I replaced the lim and uim gaskets and valve cover gaskets on my 04 Monte Carlo with the 3800, ran good lastnight. Today low oil pressure light came on when the car warmed up. Any ideas of anything I could have messed up or broke?

hope you flushed the oil out good after the LIM gasket change, any coolant in the oil on these 3800's is a recipe for a spun bearing... hopefully it's just the sending unit

Oil pressure switches are known garbage on these motors... Same thing was happening to me on my 2004 Grand Prix but I wasn't hearing any knocking and ticking when my dic informed me of low oil pressure so I took out the sensor to look at it and sure enough it was bad.. Soon as I unplugged the sensor oil pissed out so I replaced it and been fine since....
