HEY,
YOU SEEM TO BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. I WOULD START WITH THE SENDING UNITS. GM LOVES TO PUT TWO OF THE ON A CAR. ONE FOR THE GUAGE AND ONE FOR THE DASH LIGHT. UNLESS YOU HAVE NOTICED ANY BIG CHANGES IN OIL PRESSURE I WOULD THINK IT IS THE SENDER(SWITCH) FOR THE LIGHT. THEY ARE NORMALLY LOCATED AROUND THE AREA OF THE OIL FILTER HOUSING.

My 2007 Buick 3.9 liter oil light comes on and off. ..stays on for a while then goes back out. Checked the oil level all good. I did recently change the oil to GTX 5w30 extended milage oil. Any idea


The oil light comes on when the oil pressure sensor detects low oil pressure. The amount of oil has little to with it, although very low oil levels can cause loss of oil pressure. The best thing to do is to have the engine's oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge to ensure that the oil pressure is sufficient at all operating speed and temperatures. If the oil light is still flashing on and off and there is no indication of low oil pressure by the gauge, then replacement of the oil pressure sensor is recommended.

Oil pressure gauge


oil pressure sensor, low pressure due to dying pump. or blown gasket causing the pressure to leak out. Check the easy ones first like the sensor. Good luck

Oil Pressure Problem


Suggest you find a garage/auto repair who will remove the oil pressure sending unit on the motor and insert a oil pressure gauge and read the pressure.
Sounds like you have either a bad sending unit or maybe a plugged up oil filter. You are changing your motor oil every several thousand miles, right?
Be blessed.

The oil light on my 1998 Camry is on but I just got the oil changed


If it is the oil pressure warning light showing, the next thing to do is to remove the oil pressure sender unit and screw in a gauge to see if the sender is at fault.

After that it could be that the over-pressure relief valve in the oil pump has stuck open.

My check engine light came on, oil pressure was fluctuating between 0 and 45 psi. I brought the truck to a shop to have the oil pressure checked with a mechnical gauge. The oil pressure was steady and I...


oil sending units go out occasionaly and dont really mess anything up other than leaking oil on the ground just make sure you have the correct amount of oil in the motor and youll be fine. i just changed mine it quit working around 75,000 miles and i helped change my friends on his dodge he was around 87,000 miles. we both done this last year and no problems have come from it....

Oil light came on and low oil pressure or no oil pressure. But oil level is fine. 2003 Chevy sierra


spend the 12 dollars and get a universal mechanical oil pressure gauge, remove the oil sending unit on truck and screw new gauge into and start truck. Does it read pressure? I know people will say just replace oil sending unit but i like to visually check for a true oil pressure than to trust a light, at least you will know what pressure your motor has. if you have pressure then replace the sending unit. Most of the time when the sending unit goes bad your oil pressure gauge in the truck will run at 80 psi all the time. Since you have a light the sending unit just says it isn't getting pressure which turns a light on. So be safe and do as i suggest, if there is no pressure at the mechanical gauge then i hate to say it but you may have a bad oil pump. I honestly just think you have a bad sending unit,if you want just replace it and if lights go off thats good, but you still don't know what the pressure is and if you feel comfortable with this then do so.
