Hi ....... Have a look at your handbook and check the type of oil stipulated and that you have the correct amount & level, maybe another, thinner/cheaper oil has been used and when it's up to operating temp' the viscosity isn't enough to maintain pressure and fully open the pressure switch. If oil level is OK and correct oil filter has been fitted REPLACE the oil pressure switch, they're cheap and easy to do.
Let us know how you get on.

Oil light keeps coming on but had oil changed couple weeks ago

The red oil warning light is for low oil pressure. Not necessarily low oil level in the engine.

Engine light is on, oil light is on, hazor light keeps beeping. I have a SAAB 2002 93.

An oil pressure warning light or low gauge reading means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed.

Where is the 2004 chevy venturer oil pressure sensor located

Did you check your oil level? Did you check your oil pressure? Or do you plan on ignoring the warnings until your engine blows up and will no longer run?

My oil light is on and beeping like crazy on my 1997 volkswagon jetta and something in the motor keeps clicking on top of that i would like to know why?

Usually when the oil light comes on, its too late to save the engine if the sensor is working properly.

Check the oil in your engine under the hood. If it has the correct amount of oil, check the wire going to the oil pressure sensor located on the side of the engine. It may be loose or the sensor may have failed sending a false reading.

If you do not have oil in the engine " no oil pressure" you may have badly hurt the engine, and the noise you are hearing is the rocker arms begging for mercy.

Good luck! write back

Check the fluid level and change the oil if you've used the car 3,000 mi. or more.

Usually low oil pressure lights are red and are more serious than the amber lights.

I have a 1999 Beetle and When I'm driving My dash beeps like 10 beeps in a row and the inside lights come on but nothing so up on the dash to tell me the problem

Ok, so are you saying NO LIGHTS come on to tell you what issue is on the dash? The beeping you hear is a low oil pressure warning beep. Its telling you that you are either low on oil or that the oil pump is not delivering oil properly to the motor (car is sensing low oil pressure but on these cars there is no oil pressure gauge on dash to look at). Check your oil level and make sure you are not low. Best time is in morning on flat surface start car and let run 5 minutes. Stop car, let sit 5 minutes and then pull dipstick and check level. Also make sure you are using the correct oil and viscosity for this motor. VW's require VW certified oil and a certain viscosity. You can go to to find the correct oil available in the states for your vehicle. Too thin or too thick a viscosity could cause similar issue. Otherwise please clarify the light comment as I have never heard of the lights coming on automatically after a beeping noise and I will research.

1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo oil pressure low on ilde

I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

Oil light keeps coming on and beeps

This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.
