Hi there , i would say that you should replace the oil pressure sensor as well , the old one would be well soaked in oil and wont sent pressure signal to can-bus , so light will stay on until it is replaced.

Oil light comes on & starts knocking. Oil light goes out& stops knocking. Do I need a new oil pump?


The oil pressure is low or zero when the oil light comes on, I would certainly suggest replacing the oil pump before serious damage occurs. Don't even start the vehicle till you have replaced the oil pump.

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex

1984 chevrolet cavalier cs oil pressure warning light on but runs fine and oil level is ok. What could be the problem. Is there a sending unit that can be checked?


if the oil level is good and clean, and there is no noise in the motor then it will be the oil pressure switch that is bad and needs replacing.

I own a 2004 Chrysler Concorde and my oil light comes on when i come to a complete stop and goes off when i accelerate. I have replaced both the oil pump and sending unit and the light is still coming on...


Thats a sign that either you oil pressure sending unit is going bad, the oil pump is going bad, or you have sludge possibly restricting the oil flow thru the screen of the oil pump.

Oil light comes on


Change your oil pressure sender. The oil pressure sender will usually break before the oil pump will. If you are driving with the oil light on and the motor has not seized the oil pump is probably all right.When your oil light comes on you need to turn your car off immediately so you do not damage your engine crankshaft and camshaft bearings. If you change the oil pressure sender and the oil light stays on then you should replace your oil pump before more serious damage happens to the motor.

Oil light on engine is full of oil


HI, The Oil Light comes on to show a low oil pressure not just that it is low on oil. If your not experience any unusual engine noise i would not suspect low oil pressure but more likely a bad oil pressure sending unit.

My oil light keeps coming on and i changed my oil and itstill comes on. there are no oil spots unde thecar or puddles of oil .


Several issues could exist:
Faulty light - get computer code reading no code good chance its a light/short
Oil pump low pressure test with external pressure meter
Oil pressure sending unit

Once you determine you have oil pressure is good then its a fair chance you have a bad sending unit otherwise its a bad oil pump. Replacing an oil pump is not hard if you ca get the pan off without lifting the motor, Otherwise this is a big job

2002 Ford Van E-150 the check oil light comes on and of, oil preassure drops at take off, but comes back to normal once I'm driving. Oil level is fine. any ideas. Van only has 120,000 miles on it


Hi. These fluctuating pressure readings are a strong indication of oil pump failure. The oil pump is damaged. I recommend to replace this failing oil pump, and screen. Once replaced, the oil pressure will stabilize.
