This light has nothing to do with oil level, it's oil pressure that is low here and turniong on the light, If you do have low oil pressure in the engine you will shortly be needing a new engine, SO HAVE IT CHECKED RIGHT AWAY. It may be a faulty pressure sensor or other problem.

First of all, stop driving it. Second of all, it may be that your oil pump may be going out, however unless you are a mechanic, I wouldn't go any further.

While stop oil light blinks on not whlie i am driving.


When the engine is running at idol the oil pressure drops causing the oil light to flash or come on. While driving the engine is running harder and oil pressure is increased and the light goes off. Your oil level may be low in the engine or the oil pump is starting to fail. Is this a vehicle with high mileage?

After 20-30 min. driving oil light comes on when stopped. oil light goes back off when moving again.


There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).

My oil light comes on after i come to a stop after driving for a few miles. it blinks while moving, and stays steady while stopped, after that.


either your oil pump is not putting out enough pressure, or your oil sending unit is bad. much cheaper and easier to replace the sending unit which is just a little switch screwed into the block with a wire connector. if the pump is bad, generally your engine is also about at the end of its life, so before you replace the pump consider a buying and installing lower mileage used engine or a rebuilt exchange.
