Question about 1999 Volvo S80

2 Answers

No oil pressure light on

My "no oil pressure light" came on, car started making noice. Car has full oil. I'm not sure if the oil pump went out or if it is related to the computer chip. All of our warning lights are on as well (brake failure, ABS etc...sounds like this has been a common problem). Does anyone no how to check the oil pressure and where the oil pump is located on the 1999 s80? I'm handy with my hands and would like to take care of it myself. What the Volvo dealership charges is crazy...I end up working on the car myself anyways. I bought this car for my wife and son hoping it was reliable...we've had nothing but problems since purchasing it. Any idease would be appreicaited.

Hi if it was just an oil light that was staying on i would say just replace the oil pressure sensor ,its usually located near the oil filter.but with other lights on it sounds like a electronic problem like the computer that may need replacing.

The oil pump is located inside the oil pan..its a real big job to replace..from all of the codes that are showing up on the dash i would say it was the computer going crazy..and the oil pump is probably okay u may have to just buy a new computer

Low Oil Pressure and Engine light illuminated in a 2009 Saturn Outlook with 97k miles. Car having issues starting, some engine noise, no knocking.


Potentially could be an oil pump, as if you have a situation where oil pump pressure drops due to a failure in the pump, the motor could make some noise from lack of oil and the MIL light/Oil Light would illuminate due to lack of oil pressure.

Why won't my car start?


Sounds like your oil pump may have seized.You'll need a gauge to verify this. The engine has a mechanism by which it automatically cut the engine off if there's a sudden drop in pressure. I would replace the pump. If you do make sure you prime it prior to tightening the oil pan down. A big question is why you were that low on oil. Good luck!

Oil pressure low indicator no pressure on instrument read. full of oil , no engine light H2 2003 ?


Either you have a bad oil pump, or your oil sending unit is bad. You can easily find either at your corner auto parts store. (Autozone, Advanced Autoparts, Napa, Etc.)

1999 chrysler sebring low oil pressure at idle


It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.

I got in my 2001 Expedition, started it up and the oil pressure light came on. The guage was down to 0. I stopped it and started it again. The guage press. went up and then slowly dropped at first and...


oil pump gears inside the lower engine, or electrical. 1st make sure its full on oil, then sheck it with another pressure guage to confirm its not actuall pressure.

Check oil light on ,


Make sure you have the oil full on the dipstick, if the oil is not low then the pressure sending unit may be bad. do not drive the car till you are sure it is getting oil. If the oil pump went bad you may not know it till the engine siezes up, then its too late. I would contact a repair shop or the dealer to get this looked at before it's too late.

My son just bought a 1986 cadillac deville and the "stop engine oil" light comes on whenever he stops the car. Any ideas, a bad sensor, I hopr?


Well, if you say that when he stops the car, but the engine still running (idling) - that "stop engine oil" light comes on, it could mean that the oil pump can no longer maintain the minimum oil pressure to the critical areas of the motor at an idle.
If the light goes out with a higher idle (driving the car) that is a good indication of a worn out motor.
be sure the oil is at the full mark, not below or above the full mark. Make sure the oil and filter are new. The sender units for the oil lights rarely go out - but it is possible.

When my car gets hot it starts making a knocking noice only when start drivin


Suggest you have bearings inspected/replaced and oil pump checked as there is no longer a real oil pressure check in the system and knocking at temperature is slop in a bearing or lack of lubrication.

1989 honda accord lxi fi oil light


Sounds like there is an oil pressure problem. Now this can be due to several factors. 1. low oil level in car
2. bad oil pump
3.bad oil pressure switch /sending unit
4. last but not least check oil filter and make sure its not clogged.
worn engine main/connecting rod bearings.
have pressure checked with a manual guage at oil pressure switch for the correct pressure. If that's good then the switch is bad and problem solved.
if it low then you will have to check pump and bearings. Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

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.
