Have you replaced the sending unit for the oil light yet, do that now and that will likely fix the problem. The sender will be near the oil filter most likely.

That car has a dynamic oil presure system,check if the high and low oil presure senders are good, and make sure you have the correct oil and filter, that car uses 20w-50, any other would give you this problem.

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

SOURCE: Low oil pressure light comes on and goes off

the noise is the chain tensioner in the cylinder head between the two camshafts. it is a job for a proffesional shop. the 1.8t passats had an oiling problem and were fixed with a larger oil filter. some times you have to remove the oilpan and replace the oil pickup tube.

SOURCE: Oil light keeps on flashing on instrument panel

SOURCE: My oil light started flashing and alarm beeping

If the idle goes down below 600 rpm it will trigger this alarm, inadequete rpm to create oil pressure,consider adressing this issue if it exists. If this is not the case and the car has more than 150,000 miles on it remove the oil pan and replace the oil pump, I will warn you however that the usual reason why oil pressure drops off is because the connecting rod bearing clearances have opened up thereby allowing to much oil to pass by them connecting rod bearings should be done at the time of oil pump replacement.

OIL LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON?


See my answer to your related/same question which I include again for your reference:
You must immediately check your engine oil level and take appropriate action: unless you have a defective oil pressure sensor, oil pressure light usually indicates that your engine oil is not flowing properly. Some possible issues: low oil level (leaking engine?), blocked oil filter (when did you last get your car service) or defective or blocked oil pump due to excessive dirty engine oil.
Also check under your car to see if you have any oil leaks: this usually indicate that you have defective engine gaskets or oil seals causing your oil (pressure) warning light to come on.
Hope it is of assistance. But I would consult a motor mechanic asap as you engine could soon fail due to the lack adequate oil lubrication.

2004 yukon 6.o new oil pump still low oil pressure


main and rod bearings; when they wear out enough they reduce oil pressure. replacement of a dipstick tube o-ring is also an indication of a tired motor, especially if it was leaking significantly.

My oil light suddenly goes on & makes noise- the 1999 Town & Country stalls once in a while-what could be the problem?


Could be time for a new van.
The oil light is warning the driver engine oil pressure has dropped below 10 psi, not necessarily that the engine is low on oil.
Common causes for low oil pressure is a faulty oil pump or screen, or worn engine parts.
The fact you are also adding coolant and you don't see any external leaks sounds like the engine is reaching the end of its life.

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.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

2006 Pacifica 3.5L I have a small coolant leak on the passenger side. The coolant will trickle down and drip from oil pan. The puddle is only 2 inches wide. I did a pressure test at 17PSI and I lost 2PSI...


It is a possibility that the leak may come from bad seals from the water pump or a bad water pump. If you also observe bubble in the coolant inside the radiator when the car is running or water coming out of the exhaust you may have a bad head gasket. The coolant comes out of the bad part of the head gasket near the outside which lets water outside the engine as well.

Oil cooler blew up.. what does it cost to replace?


Why did it blow up...corrosion or overpressure.? If it was overpressure you need a new oil pump too.

If it was corrosion you need someone to check to see if the oil filter mount is okay to receive a new cooler and 'O' ring.

Usually the 'O' ring gets hard and cracks letting oil escape. 'O' lives between the oil cooler and filter mount. Most shops can do the job and cost depends where you are but assume around $200 or so
labour and same for parts .. I did one recently and job ran $290.00 but I didn't need to check oil pressure or change oil pump because 'O' ring had split.

Common problem with oil cooler is internal corrosion and oil and coolant mixing.Results in Mayonnaise on the dip stick and oil filler cap..corrosion is caused by infrequent coolant changes and/or wrong coolant or too little coolant antifreeze.

Use a Prestone Universal Antifreeze for yours.
