Normally when you have this problem it is the oil sending unit is sticking and it is normally located near the oil filter

You either have good oil pressure and a bad oil pressure sending unit, or your oil pressure really is low. Get it checked out, so you don'y destroy the engine.

The oil light comes on when the van is in idle, but not all the time mostly after driving awhile. All the fluid levels are ok. The oil & filter was just changed a couple months ago.


Replace the oil pressure sender and the problem should be solved . Fortunately , the senders tend to go out more frequently than the oil pump. If you change oil pressure sender and the light keeps coming on , you may have to consider replacing the oil pump in the motor or risk getting stranded some where with a blown motor.

Oil light


I suspect that the oil pump is weak or it has a lot of miles. I would try a little thicker oil first to see if this helps with the light. Maybe even use a 20/50

OIL SENSOR LIGHT ON 2001 Audi 2.8liter


It could simply be maybe the person changing your oil never reset the light? or you have a oil pressure sensor leaking or not working.
most of the time its someone never reset the oil change light. even before it goes on it goes by mileage, so maybe it didnt go off yet cause you cnahged it a tad early.so noone even tried to reset it.

I guess you could have an oil pressure problem, but thats going the extreme route.. but if nothing else shows that could be a problem.
