My Audi 500 sel oil warning light came on but oil pressure is good help

There is a sensor located on the right side of the engine near the oil filter that is the pressure sensor. If you confirmed you have good pressure then the sensor has gone bad and will need to be replaced. Probably could find one on ebay, but before replacing it I would take it off and test it to see if it's working. You should be able to find some information online on how to test the sensor or perhaps be able to take it to an Audi dealership to have it checked out.

My oil pressure sensore keeps going off

If you mean the low pressure warning on the cluster, is the oil pressure dropping below normal range ?
You may need to have the oil pressure sensor replaced or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

Oil light comes on goes out when I step on gas then when I let goe of gas pedal light and dinging sound comes on and just keeps going.I have had a oil change done and keep checking oil and it is full

If the van is running normally otherwise then it may be a bad oil pressure sensor or more likely an idle control sensor. This could potentially be a DIY (trial and error) for someone comfortable with working on cars, but I would take it to a shop ( or a dealer that youn trust) and tell them to check out the sensors. Good luck!

If you don't repair the water pump you will be walking, A used motor runs around $500-$750 and the labor to put in the engine is $500-$1000 so you dicide if you want to spend a couple hundred now or $1500 later, I would fix the water pump and install a new thermostat and coolant.
As for the oil light= check that the wire connector is attached to the oil pressure sensor located by the oil filter, replace if the wiring is good, now if it is still on, put an oil pressure gauge on where the sensor is installed and check to make sure the oil pump is producing pressure

Check oil light on 1996 chevy cavalier. guy who sold me said that it was easy fix if i bought the part. but the check oil light keeps coming on and off. there is a rattling noise in the back so im not...

My question is that if it was an easy fix why didn't he fix it? I would put a manual oil pressure gauge on the engine to check the oil pressure. When an oil light comes on that is not good. It may just have a bad oil pressure sending unit but I would confirm that with a manual gauge which you can buy at any parts store for pretty cheap. If you are hearing rattling noises from the engine I would suspect internal engine problems especially if you don't have good oil pressure. Is the oil up to the correct level? It may be something little but I would want to know what my oil pressure is and if it's not good I would try to take the car back and demand my money back because that car is not worth $2000 if it needs major work. Good luck.

My oil light is on and beeping like crazy on my 1997 volkswagon jetta and something in the motor keeps clicking on top of that i would like to know why?

Usually when the oil light comes on, its too late to save the engine if the sensor is working properly.

Check the oil in your engine under the hood. If it has the correct amount of oil, check the wire going to the oil pressure sensor located on the side of the engine. It may be loose or the sensor may have failed sending a false reading.

If you do not have oil in the engine " no oil pressure" you may have badly hurt the engine, and the noise you are hearing is the rocker arms begging for mercy.

Good luck! write back

It could be a bad sensor, but since your going to have to remove the sensor to replace it. Attach a oil pressure gauge to where the sensor would be and see what the true pressure is. Good luck and hope it's the sensor and note that the oil sensor should have been installed without any Teflon tape. The sensor is a tapered fit and Teflon would give it a faults reading, due to bad ground to the engine.

The oil light keeps coming on with a bell

If your oil gauge if you have one reads good pressure, more then likely you have a bad sensor, if you just have an oil light, take it to a repair shop where they can do an oil pressure test. Have it check, low oil pressure can cause major engine damage.

Check engine light keeps going on in 98 sunfire

It sounds like you may have a bad oil pressure sending unit gone bad and leaking oil, you should have that replaced soon as possible and you can do it your self with common tools. Go to Auto Zone and they should have the oil pressure sensor and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the oil sensor with the new one. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have. As your at Auto Zone have then scan your car for any DTC codes just to make sure that is not anything else wrong that we may have over sean.
