Pull the oil pan and check the oil screen first. It may be plugged up
This happens when the engine is not serviced and neglected

SOURCE: Low oil pressure

Sorry to say, but oil sending unit has nothing to do with oil pressure. Best case scenario for low oil pressure would be you need an oil and filter change. Better case scenario would be you need to drop oil pan and clean screen on bottom of the oil pump. Worse case scenario would be due to excessive miles on engine which causes wear on compression rings and/or crank shaft bearings where oil pressure originates from. It might be good to have a compression test done on all cylinders by a certified mechanic or at least someone who knows what they're doing. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Good luck! over4dy

Rover 75 oil pressure light comes on at low revs

first flush engine oil and refill with new correct spec oil and a new filter. if light is still on..replace op switch.
if, by chance the light is still on at this stage you will need to carry out a manual oil pressure test to verify the pressure reading is correct. If it is very low it may be oil pressre relief valve stuck or worn or even the oil pump itself. hopefully it will be the switch.

Oil light never came on, I decide to put 4 quarts due to it being 10 months since change, since doing so low oil light has come on

4 quarts means that youve got one serious leak and your slicking up the roads for every body... you should get out some tools and see what you can snug up to slow the leak, as for the light, your driving a cheap vehicle so what do you expect ?

Is there an low oil pressure automatic engine shut

Ouch. This one doesn't sound good Adrienne. Sorry. No automatic shutdown for low oil unfortunately. 1.25 qt of oil isn't enough. Sure sounds like a seized engine.

When fully warmed up, my Olds Aurora V8 gives me an in-dash and audible low oil pressure warning at low rpms (traffic signals, stop signs, idle) and immediately goes off when I resume higher rpms, usually...

Here's a few things to check out. First, you need to know if the oil pressure is correct or not. You can figure this out by removing the sensor and replacing it with a manual oil pressure gauge for testing purposes. If you find that the manual gauge is showing higher pressures, you can breathe easy and start looking at your instrument cluster for the problem. If, however, your oil pressure is reading the same, you need to figure out why your oil pressure is so low. One thing to check out, is to change out your filter, especially if it's a brand other than GM's AC Delco. Some filters are TOO restrictive, and can cause low oil pressure issues. Secondly, the viscosity of oil that you use can make a difference as well. As engines get older, and acquire higher mileages, they wear down a little. This makes larger gaps for oil to pass through, thus allowing your oil pressure to lower. For higher mileage vehicles, it's recommended to go with a slightly thicker oil, which will combat this problem. If these don't bring your pressure up enough, you may have to consider replacing your oil pump. This is more involved, as you must take the pan off the engine, and that can be a pain sometimes. You may opt for a higher volume pump, which would compensate for your increased tolerances. Hope this helped you out!

What is the check gauges light

CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8

Thicker oil is all you need. 5w30 is too thin when it warms up and the sensor cant pick up the flow going past. 10w40 should stop all the issues
