If your car is running right, "actually has oil pressure" you probably need to check the oil pressure sending unit. It isn't an expensive part and it screws in. If your not sure it has oil pressure you shouldn't run it till you find your problem.

201 Lincoln 4.6 v8,no oil pressure,was fine when shut off last nite this morning no oil pressure??


Do not run engine further. The indicator light shows oil pressure but not oil level. You could be out of oil.

Check your oil level immediately--with the engine off, open hood, remove dipstick, wipe it clean. Insert it and extract it again. The oil level.should be between the Fill and Add lines. If it is lower than that, add oil, a quart at a time, until it reaches the proper level.

If the oil level is okay, then the engine needs to be repaired. You could have a broken oil pump, clogged intake screen, or some other internal engine failure. Do not drive the car to a shop. Have it towed.

Oldsmobile intrigue oil light reset how to m?


The oil light comes on when oil pressure is too low. Oil level too low or defective oil pump in the engine. But the most common problem is a defective oil pressure sending unit sensor on the engine. The only way to reset the oil light, is by fixing the problem. There is no reset button.

Light


This is the "Low Oil Pressure Warning" light. It is RED for a reason! When this light (or any RED warning light for that matter) comes on, pull over and shut the engine OFF at once. Allowing the engine to run with insufficient oil pressure can cause a catastrophic failure in mere seconds. Such a failure can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
This warning is most often the result of a very low oil level as indicated when checking on the oil dipstick. The engine oil level should be maintained as close to the "full" mark as possible - without exceeding it. Oil should never be allowed to drop below the "low" mark on the dipstick. If the oil level is shown to be between full and low, the light is probably coming on as a result of a faulty oil pump (the oil level should be checked with the vehicle parked on level ground, with the engine OFF). A faulty oil pump is unable to pump the oil with enough pressure to reach all the moving parts of the engine that require lubrication. Without proper lubrication, connected moving parts heat up, expand and seize. Moving parts are expected to move - not be prevented from moving.
If your engine shut down, it may be the result of some of the internal parts seizing. Hopefully, this is not the case. Check the oil level and top off as needed to bring the level up and attempt to start the engine and have the vehicle checked by a trusted mechanic.
Good luck!

My 2004 Cadillac cts ran low on oil to a small leak on the freeway, the car shut off as soon as the low oil light came on. I am sitting in a rest stop 250 miles from home. I walked a few miles in the rain...

2006 chevy trail inline 6. Change engine oil light came on all of sudden. I changed the oil just 2000 miles ago. What does it mean? How do I reset ?


{: ) It could be that it was not reset properly and successfully when you last changed your oil. A scan tool can reset it better. Also, double check for oil level and leaks.

My 1999 toyota tacoma prerunner ran fin oil light came on aqnd it just shut off


Maybe you are low on oil and some cars are made like that to shut off when they run out of oil. So check the oil level and add as needed. if there is oil then maybe the oil pressure is low

How do you shut the change oil light off and the coolant light


first the change oil light: turn the key on, do not start. wait ten seconds. fully depress the gas pedal three times rapidly. wait another 10 seconds, and start the car. the light should be out. if not, repeat.

there is no reset for the low coolant light. the light will remain illuminated until the coolant is topped up. if the coolant level is ok, and the light is still on, there is a problem with either the level sensor or the wiring - more likely the sensor. good luck!

My change engine oil light is on shortly after i got my oil cahnged


The reminder needs to be set. 1) turn your vehicle off 2) turn the ignition on to just before it starts 3) press on the gas pedal 3 times very quickly. The oil change reminder will blink and shut off, that should reset it.

HOW DO YOU TURN THE OIL LIGHT OFF


If the oil light is on, Don't drive your car until you've checked the oil level .
The oil light is an indicator that warns you when the oil level has dropped to an unsafe level and will not allow proper oil flow thru the motor because the oil pressure is dropping.

Don't take a chance! Check the oil level. Make sure it's between the full and add 1 quart line. If you don't see anything on the dipstick, it's really low... If you run your car with low oil, you're going to freeze up the motor.

If the oil level is ok and the oil light is still on, have the pressure sender checked to make sure there's proper oil pressure. The light will stay on if there's a problem..
