Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My oil pressure low light stays on as I'm driving and will peridoically go off. Oil is good lights on dash also flash..could this be a bad body modul sensor?

My lights flash on and off while driving, door lights not always lite, then oil pressure light started coming on and wont go off. we have checked the oil and just changed it not 3 weeks ago. I'm wondering if this is a sensor problem instead of a engine problem due to all the lights and stuff that keep acting up..also have a clicking noise in dash when heat is running.

SOURCE: Low Oil pressure light in idle at stop

Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.

Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.

That eliminates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Have you checked the fuel injector itself for an open winding or stuck valve plunger? There should not be a steady 12 volts to the injector--if good injector, it would be spraying fuel steadily into the throttle body. But at least the engine should try to run if poorly. Take the injector out, dry it off with air, and intermittently apply 12 volts to one terminal while grounding the other. You should hear a click from inside every time you touch 12 volts. If not, replace it. If it does, it may be plugged with debris. Try blowing through it in reverse with compressed air.

SOURCE: low oil pressure after engine warms up in 94 blazer with 4.3

I have a 99 blazer and ever since I have owned it, it reads lower in pressure when idling, but will go up too 40 while driving. This is normal for the vehicle. If the pressure gets real low, and stays low, it means its time for an oil change.

As long as the pressure goes up when you give it gas, it is fine.

Testimonial: "But why has it started reading low, especialy after the new oil pump was put on. It read a constant 40 even when idling before."

I'm having rough idle and smoke all of a sudden with my golf mk4 The oil warning lights up in dash. Oil level ok. Spark plugs not burning well. Replace spark plugs, changed oil filter, changed


Smoke is not a good sign. Running rough is not a good sign. Oil light not a good sign. You could have a combination of bad things, most likely expensive. Suggest professional help. Smoke can be bad rings or holed piston. Low oil pressure can be bad bearing or oil pump.

Replaced oil sensor light still comes on


MAY---May-be you really have low oil pressure.. The way this sensor works is when you turn off the engine it closes to ground.. and when you start the engine.. the oil pressure opens it and the light goes out.. SO.. if the wire going to it is grounded out somewhere between the sensor and the dash board the light will stay on.. 3 choices.. 1. bad sensor (even though you replaced it) 2. wire is shorted to ground.. remove wire from sensor while engine is running.. light should go out. 3. you actually have really low oil presure. next.. after you have exuasted #1-2. you can remove sensor and install a real oil pressure guage and see what the pressure really is.. If you have very low or no oil pressure..1. Check oil level.(probably should have done this first) 2.pull oil pan and replace oil pump.. while you are there check a main bearing and a rod bearing for wear.. worn out bearings will cause low oil pressure. If you have good oil pressure install the pressure guage permanetly and forget about light.

I have a citreon Xantia v6.On start up the light above the oil light flashes on and of for 10 seconds then stops.What is this?


It means the oil pressure may be low, have a shop hook up a test gauge and verify your oil pressure is good and within factory specs, if not the oil pump may be defective, but that is only a guess. Do not drive this until you get it checked or you risk damage to the engine's bearings from low oil pressure if it is indeed really low and the sending unit for the light isn't defective..

Oil light blinks on


If your oil level is good, that is between the low and high marks, that light blinking is an indicator there is a problem with your oil pressure. The light flashing could be low oil level, a bad oil pressure sensor, your oil pump going out or a clogged line or pick up. Start by checking your oil level, then test the sensor if both are good drain your oil and pull the oil pan off to see if the pick up is clogged, if it is clean it. If everything is good at this point then the problem is the pump itself and you'll need to replace the pump.

My oil light is flashing red and making a dinging noise


Could just be out of oil. Check the oil. Don't drive it! If it has plenty of oil the oil sending unit maybe faulty.. Best have a shop check engine oil pressure with a mechanical oil pressure gauge before driving it.. Engine will be ruined if you drive it with no oil pressure.

How to reset oil light on dash of 01 1.4 golf


Oil lights do not reset.

Your Golf either has low oil level/pressure or the oil pressure sending unit/wiring is bad.

You need to immediately check your engine oil level. The instructions are in your manual.

If the oil level is low, DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR! YOU WILL DAMAGE THE ENGINE! Add oil as instructed in your manual and the light should go out within 20 seconds or so after you start your car. You will then need to check for leaks and/or find out why your oil was gone.

If the oil level is normal, you need to get the car to a mechanic to see if the problem is the sending unit or an actual oil pressure problem. Since at this point you cannot be certain, I recommend that you have the car towed to avoid engine damage that will happen if your oil pressure is indeed low.

Oil light flashing on dash


check for proper oil level in engine with dipstick if ok.then install mechanical oil pressure gauge on oil pressure sending unit to verify proper oil pressure, if pressure ok. then replace the sending unit/sensor, if pressure not ok. , you may need to remove engine oil pan to check for restriction on oil pick-up tube screen. if ok replace pump. but also check clearance on mains and connecting rods.

My oil light is flashing & chiming when I drive. But my oil isn't low


Sounds like the low oil sensor is bad or corroded. Check and clean. If that doesn't fix, replace it.

Oil light stuck on


This light is flashing due to a low engine oil pressure signal, this may be a real issue of low engine oil pressure or a defective pressure sensor on the engine, replace the sensor first and see if the light goes out, if not u have a possiable engine oil pump problem.
