2002 trailblazer oil pressure drops when stopped returns accelerating


Usually means the engine bearings are worn out, or the oil pump is weak.
As the oil gets hot, it gets thinner, which reduces pressure. When the engine is at idle speed the pump is not pumping as fast as it is at highway speed.

Check engine light blinking car shaking, oil light on after a few miles from starting


May be low oil, low oil pressure (faulty oil pump) or a bad pressure switch. When your at highway speeds the pump, pumps faster & brings the oil to the right PSI. Try a thicker oil than called for, get the oil pressure checked,oil leaks? & get the switch ckd out.

1993 chevy pickup z 71 driving down interstate and check gauge light came on and oil presure dropped to 0. Truck died and cant start again


It could be the oil pressure sending unit, or the engine could really have no oil pressure.
If the oil pressure dropped to zero at highway speed, I would expect the engine to lock up or at least make alot of noise.
You may have to tow it home and check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, or replace the sending unit to see if the gauge on the dash reads pressure.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay at startup, then runs off power from that oil sending unit when the engine is running.

Why does my oil light come on sitting at a red light or stop sign. But when I start driving it turns off?


Oil pressure is always lower at idle speed.I'm guessing you have high mileage.If your oil light is not coming on in drive at idle with the engine cold,but it does when hot,your bearing clearances are probably getting a little loose.Try using one quart of Lucas oil additive in place of a quart of oil at your next change(or just change it now).This stuff is thick and stringy,it helps the oil cling to surfaces.(if there is no change after this,you could try a new oil pressure switch-it's cheap enough.I actually had the switch on my 95 dakota leaking a LOT of oil at high pressure/RPM,which affected the reading).

The oil light comes on at times and goes off as the rpms go up. What can be done about the light?


Maybe your engine is idling too slowly, If the revs are below say 700rpm the low pressure warning light could come on especially when the engine is hot.. If the idle speed is ok try a heavier grade of oil in the engine. Next try a new oil pressure sensor. It's got to be one of these things. Check the engine running temperature . An over-hot engine will cause the oil light to come on too.

The engine oil light illuminates after making a sharp turn or after coming down from highway speeds to slower speeds


Sounds like you've got sludge. The best way to deal with it is to change the oil. Flushing with an oil cleaner is dangerouse but faster. The cause of this isrunning too long without an oil change, engine overheating, and antifreeze leaking into the oil. Lots of really short trips where the oil doesn't reach full operating temperture. Change the oil with a good cheap oil including the filter. Run the car for about a week 200 miles and change the oil again, filter and all. do this again untill when you go to change the oil it's not exactly black solid like the first time you changfed it. Another cause of sludging is the car does'nt warm up fast enough and not hitting the full operating temperture, it could need a new themostat. Overheating can cause problems too. Is the cheak engine light on? If it is you need to research the problems and get them repaired because everyuthing effects everything else.

Oil light comes on when travelling at highway speeds after cooling down it shuts off


Stop driving it until you have this checked out!
Low oil pressure is making the light come on.
The engine might seize up on you and that's big bucks.
Or course having the oil light come on may be big bucks as well. It means the bearings might be worn out and you'll either need to overhaul the engine or get a replacement engine - or new car!
