Check the oil level. Back when I was 16 my car's oil light came on when turning corners. Turned out it was low on oil by about 3 quarts!!!

If the level is good then you probably have low oil pressure. Install a (mechanical) oil pressure gauge and compare that to what the reading is supposed to be (you can get that info from a service manual).

Good luck.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

I own a 2004 Chrysler Concorde and my oil light comes on when i come to a complete stop and goes off when i accelerate. I have replaced both the oil pump and sending unit and the light is still coming on...


Thats a sign that either you oil pressure sending unit is going bad, the oil pump is going bad, or you have sludge possibly restricting the oil flow thru the screen of the oil pump.

Low on oil or bad conection at sending unit. Maybe even a bad sending unit. Make sure the engine is off when checking oil.Not trying to be rude.

You could try thicker oil or stop using synthetic or add some lucas oil treatment or change the oil. The sender could be bad too. A diag is in order because if there is no presure the engine will soon die.

Oil light


I suspect that the oil pump is weak or it has a lot of miles. I would try a little thicker oil first to see if this helps with the light. Maybe even use a 20/50
