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

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.

That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

The engine oil level is fine and the oil light is on.


This can be a few different things. I'll give you a couple. First, do you have an oil pressure gauge? If you do, watch it very closely. Specifically while accelerating, braking, and making turns... so, pretty much, all the time except when cruising. If you don't have one, you'll just have to watch the light. More than likely you are losing oil pressure and it has nothing to do with oil level. If it comes on more when the car is idling, but tends to go off when it's revved up, the oil pump may be going out or may be leaking. It could be that it's pickup line is getting clogged, but don't count on it. It could also be a clogged oil filter, but again, not likely. Change your oil AND filter first and foremost, even if you've done it recently. Then watch the light while the car is idling and while revving it SLIGHTLY. BE CAREFUL!!! If you're temperature gauge starts going up or your check engine light comes on, shut it OFF. Lack of oil pressure leads to blown engines. You don't want to spend 3-5K on a new one. Get the thing checked out. One more thing. When you get your oil changed, ask the mechanic to reset your car's oil change computer. Many newer cars will show an oil light when it's time to change the oil. If it's not reset, it won't know it was changed and will stay on. I hope this is your problem. Good luck with everything.

My oil pressure gage is in the red and doesnt move but i have lots of oil in it and i havent lost any it is a 96 explorer xl


Is the low oil pressure light on?
If the tappets are not noisey and the motor is not making any abnormal 'rattly' noises you may only have a faulty oil gauge pressure sender.
Replace the pressure sender, and if there is any remaining doubt get the oil pressure checked with an independant gauge before driving vehicle further.

Oil light


No oil spiting out the open hole is not a good sign. Im sure you checked the oil level but check it again. Do not run the engine with no oil pressure or it will eat itself up in real fast. The problem could be in the pump itself. They seldom go bad but the some times they will have a clogged pick up screen or shear a pin on the gear.
