You need a mechanical .guage to connect to your engine to tell for sure if it is a real problem. but most cases a new sending unit for the oil will fix the issue. I don't know on your exact model but a sending unit is normally cheap to replace.easy to change. and normally close to oil filter. if it doesn't fix it have a mechanic check your actual oil pressure.

SOURCE: oil light is on

May be bad oil pressure sending unit. Best way to check is to connect a mechanical oil pressure guage to engine and check pressures when engine is warm. Should be no lower than 40 psi at idle when warm, no higher than 70 psi at 2000 rpm.

The pump is probably going and provides pressure only under high speeds. Could also be a leak, so check underneath the car first.

it is most definitely the oil pressure sender!

standing in front of your car, look behind your engine from above, below the head and screwed into the block on the right side is the sensor.

The low oil sensor is not "seeing" the oil in the tank...(mine does this when I crank it,, the low oil light stays on).. It uses plenty of oil,,I quit worrying..- -don't feel like taking the oil system apart..

I have a Ford F350 Lariat Super Duty Diesel with the 6.0 engine. wha would cause the oil pressure to drop complete when I come to a stop but run normal when going down the road?


Your oil is under pressure as it is circulated through the engine, and at low RPM there is less pressure pumping the oil around. With the broken dipstick, I presume there is an oil-pressure leak and at normal operating speed there is enough capacity to maintain proper pressure, but the leak is more than the engine can overcome at low speed. I would suggest replacing the broken dipstick.

The oil alarm come on after a 10mn drive at slow down


Check for low oil level on engine dipstick. If not that, change the oil, it is getting too thick. If not that, there is a clog in the oil pump or the oil filter. Change the oil filter first.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

My 04 dodge stratus oil light comes on when i slow down or come to a stop,but turns off as i go


Sounds like your oil level is too low.
When you slow down or stop, your oil levels out and is too low for the gauge to read.
When you speed up, your oil sloshes and splashes the sensor, thus making it appear that it is circulating properly, when it actually isn't.

Is your temperature high, too?

Low oil pressure


Sounds like you have an internal engine problem. the only way to be sure is to check the oil pressure with an external gauge.
