Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

My idiot light came on in my 1994 camry showing low on oil. I put oil in because the car was low on oil and now the light stays on. I had kept the car garaged only driving it on my road weekly and now I want to drive the car everyday. We took the car approx 5 miles and the light came on indicating low on oil. I put the oil in the car and the light stays on. What can this mean?

Oil pressure sensors are one of the least reliable devices in our cars; to be sure you have no problem with your oil pump you should have the oil pressure checked by a shop but having replaced a half-dozen of these over the years, I'd probably just buy one and DIY.
They could cost anywhere from ~$10 to $40 US.
If you do replace it, I highly recommend using either layers of Teflon plumbing tape or a sealant when installing the new one to avoid having it drool sometime in the future.
