Check if there is too much oil. over filling the engine with oil causes the oil to foam which leads to loss of oil pressure. it could also be the oil pressure sensor

Oil pressure sensor, or most likely, oil level sensor, either sensors, wires, or connections.

What can be the problem the oil light stays on on the dashboard but the oil level is ok (endura de)


The oil light refers to oil PRESSURE, not oil level. That said, if the oil pressure is low enough to set the oil light, then you should be hearing rattling noises coming from the engine when it is running. That is not to say that you may not still have a problem. The oil light is nothing to take lightly. If there is an oil pressure problem, engine damage can occur quickly. Check the wiring connection to the oil pressure sending unit. If you suspect that the problem is not really low oil pressure, then change the pressure sensor. It is relatively cheap and the easiest way to verify whether there is a real problem. If the light remains on after the sensor is replaced, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge to verify that it is low. If it is low, you either have a very worn out engine, or a malfunctioning oil pump system.

Why does my low oil pressure light comes on when making left and right turns


A bad oil pump could cause this but i would double check the oil level when the engine is hot on a level surface. That light usually only comes on when you have a low oil level and make turns starving the oil pump.You should do an oil pressure test to make sure it is the oil pump. However seeing that it only comes on when you take hard turns, it makes me believe that is may be an exposed wire that grounds out when you make a hard turn

Just had my oil changed and the check engine oil level low light is coming on . But checked it and it's not low , just on the full mark . It comes on everytime I restart the car . how do I fix that ?After...


You have to reset the check engine oil level light. The light is just a 3 month reminder that lets you know when to change your oil. You have to hold the reset button on your dash for more then 5 to 10 sec. The procedure is in the owners manual that came with the car.

Past weekend check engine light comes on, engine sounds and feels fine. However the oil pressure is running slightly slow


Check that the oil level is full.If the oil has been in service for more than 4,000 miles, change it. Replace the oil pressure sending unit. If nothing changes, put a mechanical gauge on the engine and read actual oil pressure. Though "acceptable" low pressure is only 5lbs, I would never accept that as safe. Minimum pressure should be at least 20-25psi and normal running pressure between 35 to 45psi.
How low is "slightly low"?

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.

Oil Light comes on VW passat


Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

Oil light comes on at certain times


First, check the oil level on the dipstick. If it is low, add the required amount of approved motor oil. If the level is correct and the light still comes on, there may be other issues.
