In some cases where the oil is not changed properly, the oil pump screen maybe plugging or your oil filter is defective. Fram is a good filter. If there is no problem found, replace the pressure sensor.

Dear Bill, You will need to find a mechanic who can remove the oil pressure sending unit from the engine block and insert a "real" oil pressure guage to tell if you really have a problem or not. Lots of factory dashboard guages are not very accurate over time. If you really do have that low of oil pressure, you need to address that quickly.

Remove the oil pressure sending unit and have a test gauge hooked up and see if the sending unit is defective. If you really have low pressure the engine should be making lots of noises.

Your oil pressure will flucuate with the rpm of your engine. It is generally higher also when the engine is cold as the oil is thicker. This is normal as long as your oil pressure stay in the normal operatting range.

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.
