Oil light in Jeep Liberty comes on after getting oil changed

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty with 70,500 miles on it. I took it in for an oil change. After driving about 20 minutes the oil light comes on when I am preparing to stop. What could be causing this?

Oil level is low you have a leak. or they didn't add enough maybe your oil pump is going bad causing low oil pressure.

Just bought our 2002 Jeep Liberty. The oil pressure light came on shortly after we bought it. Took the Liberty in for an oil change right away- pressure is fine, no leaks. The light is still coming on and...


How do you know the pressure is fine? What is the pressure? Either the engine is bad, or the oil pressure sender is lying, you need to know ASAP.

Does it come on when its at a low idle? If so its probably the oil pump that is on the way out or the main bearings. It could be as easy as as wiring that is going to ground from the sensor.

2004 Jeep Liberty-the Oil indicator light comes on and will stay on. Turn off car immediately as the book indicates, let it sit for awhile, turn back on--light is off. Drive a few miles, light comes back...


Double check how much oil is in the engine, it could be coming on because your low on oil. I can only think of two other possibilities either you have a bad oil sending unit or you have a problem with your oil pump.

Oil pressure light keeps coming on when car is at stop , or just when engine is running , but when you start moving light will come off


Am currently having the same problem. Waiting on dealership to let me know if it is the sending unit or oil pump. I am being told to not drive the car far distances or let it sit to idle for a long period of time.

I've never seen an oil pressure sensor that costs $750...Likely something else was done to justify that cost. If the light has not come on since the repair, I'd assume that problem has been corrected. If not, have the thing checked out again. If they charged you to repair it, then it should be fixed or, it's their problem!!! You should not be afraid to drive your vehicle. It's a machine, therefore it can and will break sometimes as do all cars. But being afraid to use it is not a solution.

Oil pressure light comes on after driving on highway for 10 miles


Sounds like your sending unit sensor - if it was your pump going out, your engine would be history by now. Rule of thumb, if your oil check light ever comes on, it's usually too late to remedy the problem. You have a major issue, but since you've obviousely drove it quite a bit since then and it still hasn't seized up, I'm guessing you're ok...for now. Since you took it to a shop and they said you're ok, I'm assuming they checked your level and visually checked for leaks and found nothing. Either, you've got somethijng partially blocking your pick-up tube for the pump which is in your oil pan, or a electrical issue with the sensor. I would start by having someone check the sensor out and go from there...good luck.
