Question about 1987 Hyundai Excel 4-Door
Hyundai 2002 xg350 - oil light goes on and off as I drove home yesterday. I gave it an oil and filter change and it stayed off almost a day. It started doing it again this afternoon, it seemed to stay off longer as I accelerated. I checked the oil level and it is good
I had a similar problem with my 2003 Sante Fe (intermittant problem, the light went off when I accelerated). I took it to the dealership. They looked for a bad send oil switch (not the problem) as well as some other possible culprits but could not, at first, find what was causing the light to come on (but they did confirm that I had low oil pressure). So, they took the engine apart. What it was was the pan was "dented" upwards, so that less oil was able to come in. It wasn't the bearings. It wasn't the crank case. It wasn't the oil pump. So, they fixed the dent, put everthing back together and . . .it worked! The light went off and stayed off. It cost $337 in labor. I was very very very relieved.
(Apologies if this explanation is hard to follow-I'm no mechanic and am basing my response on my understanding of the mechanic's explanation).

This light is telling you that the engine has low oil pressure, it may just be the sending unit on the engine that is defective, or it might have low oil pressure, since low oil pressure will destroy the engine bearings it is best to find out what is going on right away, replace the oil pressure sender 1st, if the light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked by a mechanic.

DO NOT RUN IT!! Oil light on means no pressure to lubricate engine, even in intervals lack of oil pressure will soon lock your engine. Change the oil pump before running it again

You might have to put more break fluid in.
