SOURCE: low idle stalls out

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Oil Light at Low RPMS.

could be the oil pump, but before you get to that, whens the last time you had you oil changed? is it the right type? was the filter changed to? if the oil is to thick for your engine, the pump could be having a problem pushing it. If its dirty, same thing applies. Next time you change your oil, be sure to use a full synthetic. its a superior oil all around.

SOURCE: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Oil Light at Low RPMS.

I had the same exact problem over the weekend. We decided to go cheap first and replace the Oil Pressure Switch. It's like $6.00 at Auto Zone here in Texas. (don't know if you are from the states). It ended up being the switch. It's located right by the oil filter and it's very easy to change. Just make sure you have a wrench or deep socket bigger than 15/16. I think we used a 1 inch wrench.

If it's not the switch, its most likely the oil pump, but don't forget to check the hose, it could be bent or crimped.

Hope this helps :D

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My oil light comes on when car idles below 1000 rpms mazda mpv 2003


Your motor oil level is low.
The oil light indicates low oil pressure - at higher RPMs the oil sending unit (oil pump) can create
a little oil pressure, but at lower RPMs it fails to keep up.
If the oil level is good, then the oil sending unit itself is going bad.

I have an 2001 galant V4 2.4l and the oil and the battery lights keep flashing when the car is in low rpm an the battery drains completely in a couple of days


not sure these are related. battery light is due to alternator failure. Oil light is due to oil pump wear. The oil pump may work OK for a couple more years. Replace it if it gets much worse (if light comes on above 1000 rmp). The alternator must be replace now.

My oil light comes on when i hit the breaks. what would cause this?


The low oil level switch activates the OIL light in the instrument cluster when the oil level in the pan goes below a certain level. The switch is mounted on the oil pan. Check it.

07 eclipse gs- oil light comes on, when started once car hits 1500 rpms light goes off. until rpms drop again like at a red light. oil was just changed but this time a k&n oil filter was put on maybe...


If the bypass in the filter is not woking properly the will have an affect try going back to an OE filter and recheck the k&n filters are good for high pressure oiling systems I installed one on a friends truck and had the same problem.

OIL LIGHT COMES ON WHEN RPMS GO BELOW 10000


I'm guessing you mean 1000 so make sure you have oil first off then have it changed if you are due for it. After that you need to have the pressure switch checked, and or a mechanical test of your oil pressure
