Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
Check oil light is on all the time. fresh oil change and crankcase is full per spec. Dipstick reads fine. Could oil pump be bad?
2.2l cavalier engines have an oil level sensor on the front side of the pan just below the starter. make sure it plugged in before checking anything else. if you're going to change a sensor because of "low oil' light, that would be the one.

You should have an oil pressure Gage put on the car to be sure the pressure is in spec, im sure it is fine if your motor is still running. but sometimes motors can develop low oil pressure, most likely your problem is with the oil pressure sending unit located on the block, this is pretty simple to test just pull the single wire off the sending unit and see if the light goes out, if it does and your oil pressure is within spec then your sending unit (or low oil sensor) is bad very simple to replace and should be no more then $35-40 part CLICK HERE IS YOUR PART please be sure to rate this and good luck -Jeff
