Question about 2003 Nissan Murano
On a really cold morning (-13 F) my Murano had to have a jump start. At the same time I noticed the oil pressure light remained on. After allowing the engine to warm up a little I drove it an noticed at higher RPM's the light would go off.
What are the possible explanations for this? I did check the oil level and it is fine.
It will take a while for the oil to circulate throughout the engine at that cold of a temperature. You may want to get an oil change done and make sure you have the proper oil for the temperatures. What happends is that the oil gets thicker and has a harder time circulating through the engine. BE VERY CAREFUL leaving the car run with the oil light on. You can blow the engine very quickly as I learned the hard way. Good luck to you and thanks for using FixYa!
