Low oil pressure light on

I checked oil level and it is fine. The low oil pressure indicator starts blinking when I put it in gear and stays on. What are the possible reasons for this? The engine temperature is normal.

Do an oil and filter change and make sure you put the proper oil grade, if symptom still persist, replace your oil sending unit.

Why does oil light stay on when oil level is okay?


The oil light is not an indication of oil level; rather it is an indication of oil pressure. If the oil pressure is low enough to light the oil light, you should be hearing some rattling in the engine. Otherwise, it is possible that the oil pressure sending unit is defective. You are lucky if that is the case, because some vehicles are wired that if the oil pressure sensor indicates low pressure, the engine will shut down to protect itself. You should have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge ASAP and take whatever corrective measures are necessary.

Limited performance now wont start


limited performance indicates that the ecm put the engine in the low power mode due to a problem encountered with a sensor ( low oil level-pressure, overheat /low coolant level, gear box temperature over heat, loose position sensor/s . Run the fault codes first to determine where the faults are. Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt)

Oil pressure light staying on when ticking over,or braking


The fault is indicating low oil pressure, when the engine revs are low the oil pressure drops, first thing to do is change the oil pressure switch (cheapest option), see if that cures the fault. If not have the oil pressure checked, if the fault is the oil pump, then it could cause serious engine damage. Needs to be check out as soon as possible. Good Luck

Oil light blinks on


If your oil level is good, that is between the low and high marks, that light blinking is an indicator there is a problem with your oil pressure. The light flashing could be low oil level, a bad oil pressure sensor, your oil pump going out or a clogged line or pick up. Start by checking your oil level, then test the sensor if both are good drain your oil and pull the oil pan off to see if the pick up is clogged, if it is clean it. If everything is good at this point then the problem is the pump itself and you'll need to replace the pump.

2005-low oil pressurer explore


I'm assuming you have a low oil pressure indicator on the dash. Have you checked the oil level? If it is at correct level, it is possible the oil pressure sender/switch isn't reading the pressure properly. Also it is possible that bearings in the engine are worn out, or that the oil pump isn't working properly. If you don't have a pressure gauge to screw into the engine where the switch is, I would start by replacing the oil pressure switch.

Red light in dashbord blinks on/off look like a red hose with a drip.


That's the oil pressure light. Take it to an auto parts store like Napa or AutoZone, and ask the staff to scan your car (they'll do it for free). That will diagnose the specific problem. Odds are that you're a little low on oil.

CAN A OIL PRESSURE GO DOWN TO 25 WHILE IN GEAR AND 40 WHILE HITING THE GAS IT SHOLD STAY AT 40 45 NORMALY NO MATER WHAT RIGHT ITS A 2000 DENALI 4X4 I DO HAVE ISSUES WITH 02 SENSORS IS THAT THE REASON WHY


Oil pressure is not constant, while idiling the pressure is less than when accelerating. Usually when the oil pressure gauge fluctuates it is a sign of low oil level.

2004 Chev Epica - oil light comes when car comes to a stop


the oil light is coming on due to sensed low engine oil pressure, this is not a level issue unless u are about 3 quarts low, oil pressure indicators don't leave any computer codes, so who ever told u that is wrong, u need to test the oil pressure with a mechanical gage when the oil light is on, until U need to confirm that u don't have a real pressure issue here or you can burn out the engine bearings, if the pressure checks ok then rplace the oil pressure light sending unit in the engine.

Oil light blinks and oil is at the max in my 07 dogdge charger


oil light normally blinks for 2 reason. low oil pressure or low oil level. if the level is good and since its a 2007 i would hope that it was getting pressure. so its prolly the sensor. you can either remove the sensor and have someone check it. electrician hopefully. or you can just replace it

98 altima oil light on and off oil level fine car restarted and


If oil pressure is LOW this vehicle has a safety feature that will prevent vehicle from starting.(check oil level before you start) Now what I wan't you to do is to have the oil pressure switch checked or changed. This may be the reason why this vehicle is not starting or it can also be that the actual oil pressure is low. To check the oil pressure of the vehicle you will need an oil pressure guage. Remove the oil pressure switch and connect guage to oil pressure hole and check oil pressure while cranking vehicle.Some pressure testers can be connected to oil filter housing either is fine. If this vehicle has low oil pressure the reasons for that are bad oil pump, clogged oil pump pick up(from lack of oil change/poor mantainence) or bad connecting rod and main bearings but this usually have a warning from before (the engine will sound loud by knocking /clicking-tapping noise) It this was happening you may need to rebuild this engine or replace it. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA
