It can mean one of two things. Either your oil level is too low, meaning more than 1 quart, or your pressure is too low. The first thing to do is check the oil level in the engine and top it up. If the light goes out after this then everything is okay. If the light stays on you should get the oil pressure checked with a mechanical guage to get an accurate reading.

Get this done as soon as possible. Manufacturers don't give you much room with these lights, when they come on you are very close to the engine meltdown point. Hope this helps.

Y the stop engine oil light comes on


It comes on when you need to stop and check the oil. Check oil or oil level and oil pressure. It means something is wrong and probably going to cost you a lot of money.

Oil light never came on, I decide to put 4 quarts due to it being 10 months since change, since doing so low oil light has come on


4 quarts means that youve got one serious leak and your slicking up the roads for every body... you should get out some tools and see what you can snug up to slow the leak, as for the light, your driving a cheap vehicle so what do you expect ?

not 100% but an easy attempt is when you fill your tank up next, throw in some fuel injector cleaner, check the air filters as well, ah maybe since she's a caddy get her in for a good all round tune up, they'll check it all out and change all regular maintenance things like oil and air filters etc. I don't know if there's an Auto Value near you they do free diagnostic checks (plug in a computer and it tells you what's wrong and where the problem lies

Oil light flickers at idle in gear 1983 cadillac devill 4.1


This is because the oil pump is not pumping enough oil. It is either very low on oil, or the oil pump is going out. The light comes on when the oil pressure drops below 5 psi. This is very low. It should run about 25-30 psi at an idle.
Please rate 4 thumbs up, if this helps! Thanks for using Fixya.com

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.

What does it mean when the dashboard reads gear indicator fault, service ride control and change oil soon even after i just got it changed along with service vehicle thats what keeps popping up on my dash...


Off the top of my head the following may be the case for your 1995 Cadillac Deville based on my 1997 Cadillac Deville knowledge:

gear indicator fault- has to do with the shift lever sensor down on the column by the feet,

service ride control- has to do with the air ride shocks in the back or the compressor in the front or the ride control height,

change oil soon- has to do with not resetting the % oil life (just press reset button for a few seconds when the oil % life is displayed)

Hope this helps you out.

Oil level light comes on inthe afternoon on 1995 cadillac 4.9 when coming to astop


assuming your oil is full and you have changed the oil regularly the light is telling you you have low oil pressure

untreated this will lead to engine failure

if you are lucky, its just an oil pressure switch issue

that being said... check you oil level and/or change your oil and see what happens

1995 4.9 ltr 78k mi. When car is stopped for red


Probably an oil pump, will it still do this if you rev the engine a little while stopped? If not then you have an oil pump that could be failing or hopefully it is the pressure sensor that is off. either way don't chance it
