Restarted the engine; Oil pressure was good for 4 to 5 min. then pressure light start flicker (app. 20 sec) and went ON; increasing engine speed to 50% oil pressure light went OFF.
- Engine Oil level is OK,
- Oil is new W5/30.
2./ 2 or 3 days after the weather was warm (6 to 7 degC)and I was driving the car 350 to 400km everything was OK !!??
3./ Now it is cold again (below freezing point, -14C) and I have the same problem with oil pressure.
* Is it possible that engine vapor frost inside engine oil circulation system causing decrease of oil pressure or any idea what is the problem???

it could be a sticking oil pressure relieve valve when cold or a weak oil pressure switch when cold. the oil pressure should be checked when first started cold.

Oil light comes on when stopped at a light. Okay when moving. Oil levels are okay. Reving the engine when stops makes it go out.


Its possible the pressure light is faulty, or you really do have low oil pressure. The pressure is higher when the oil is cold than when the engine is warmed up.
You could replace the switch and see what happens, or get the pressure checked with a mechanical gauge in place of the switch.

How do I turn off the oil light indicator for a 2002 dodge neon


You need to find out why the low oil pressure light is on. Either you are low of oil, the oil pump is not working properly, or the oil pressure sending unit is defective. Fix the problem and the light will go out. Do NOT start this engine until you find the cause of this. Low oil pressure will destroy this engine.

Oil pressure light on at idle


Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.
