Their is a couple things to check before replacing the oil sending unit. 1. Verify the wire connection to it is secure. 2. Verify engine is at proper idle and not to low.

SOURCE: Oil Pressure Light Comes On after 10 min of Driving

You may not have put the right amount of oil in your car, your oil pressure sensor could be faulty, or you may have a leak.

By revving your engine, you're increasing the pressure and thus turning off the light and making the sensor think that it's at the correct pressure.

SOURCE: Oil pressure light on at idle

Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

SOURCE: OIL PRESSURE LIGHT COMES ON AND PRESSURE GOES TO 0 ON GAUGE

Any time the oil pressure is 0 you take a chance of locking up the motor. The only way to know for sure is to put a pressure gauge in the oil pressure sending unit port on the engine and see what the pressure really is. At that point you will either have the peace of mind in the knowledge that the sending unit is really bad and needs replacement or you can then contact a repair shop and tell them what your testing has revealed. I wouldn't drive or run your truck while the oil pressure is at zero.

Good luck

SOURCE: low oil pressure light only comes on when I am

First thing to do is to make sure you are using the correct weight oil for your vehicle which is 5w30. Make sure you are using a quality filter such as Mopar, Purolator, or Wix. If that is the case then replace the oil pressure sensor. If the problem is still there have an oil pressure test run on the system. If the oil pressure is low at idle then you will need to remove the oil pan and find out why. Could be the oil pump screen is clogged or the oil pump needs replacing. You need to stop driving this vehicle until this problem is solved or serious engine damage could occur.

Oil pressure gauge on 2007 mitsubishi shogun sport not working but no oil warning light. Anyone had similar issues?


As a first step you should have the pressure gauge sender unit replaced which has most likely failed prematurely. It is not an expensive part but the OP gauge will not work without it functioning.

If the gauge then shows no pressure I would also have a mechanic check the oil pressure on the vehicle with an independent gauge.

Hello

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.
