Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
The oil in my 2002 Ford Taurus ses was change about 4 months ago. The oil light comes on when the car comes to a stop but goes off as soon as the car starts moving.I was told the oil needed to be change every month.This just started about a day ago. What could be the problem?
Sounds like you may not have gotten a full amount of oil in the car, or you may have a faulty oil sending unit. Regardless of that though, you most definitely do NOT need to change your oil every month. Do another oil change and make sure the proper amount of oil is put in (the capacity is listed in your owner's manual in the specifications section). Try it out and see if you continue to have this problem. If you do, it's possible that the sensor is bad and is telling you that you have less oil than you really do.
