My oil light keeps going on and off on my 2008 Pontiac G6

The oil sender is not leaking, My oil levels are not low but my oil light keeps coming on and then it goes off. I can turn my car off and it will go off and stay off for a while sometimes a day sometimes a few hrs sometimes a few moments. I have took the car to a few mechanics and the all have given me different diagnosis and at this point I don't feel comfortable letting any of them work on it

Probably the oil sensor
I had an oil change and the mechanic cracked my sensor which was causing the oil light to come on

Well try this on the pontiacs there is a reset procresure ....If you have change your oil lately and the procresure has not been activated then it need to be or you need a oil change asp with the right oil for that model of car check the book that came with the car or the dealership that service those cars. But you don't have to let them change your can purchase the right oil and filter and let someone else do the labor with pay. CarX only charge me $10 but have them to return your empty containers after they say the job is done it they stall ....Check to see whats going on at that shop. Talk to you La Da!!

SOURCE: low coolant level in 2000 Grand Prix GT

I had the same problem this winter. The head gaskets were blown, took the block apart and replaced all the gaskets. Cost about 300 - 400 in parts and took one full day to finish with 3 men who aren't particularly experts but who aren't rookies to say the least.

SOURCE: Oil light keeps coming on at an idle

ok. oil ight is probably nothing more than a faulty pressure switch.You can have pressure checked at same screw in port. 15psi is ok...just. very cheap to replace. Ign control module is probably the cut-out fault. You cant really test it; repair by substitution is the trick.

I have a 2015 volkswagon passat. And the low oil light keeps coming on and I checked the oil yesterday and the light went off and came back on today. But it's not the oil pressure light. ?

Keith, it probably is the oil pressure light.

Low oil level causes low oil pressure. But, as you say .. your oil level is okay. It may be the oil pressure sender which is at fault. There's every possibility that your oil pressure is fine, but the sender is sending a false signal to your dashboard which gives the 'low oil level' warning light.

Get the mechanic at your local dealership to stick his head under the hood. You'll get a diagnosis in seconds. I don't think you have too much to worry about .. just that 'low oil level' warning light is a bit unsettling ..

I need to replace the oil sending unit on my 2008 Pontiac G6 as it is leaking oil, but am having trouble determining the right part #. Is there an oil sending switch AND a separate oil sending unit?

there should be a sender unit with one wire attached that is connected to the oil light or gauge and there possible is a oil pressure sensor switch with 2 or more wires attached that reports to the ECM unit that shuts the motor down when the oil pressure is insufficient
take it to a service center and have it identified

Going up a hill, traction and break lights comes on (service traction-break fluid) message on my screen, got to top of hill and slowed down, lights came off. 2008 pontiac g6

Make sure your brake fluid is at the correct level. Any issue with the brake system will cause the traction system to not work as traction control works by modulating the brake on the wheel (s) that are slipping. If fluid level is fine then the sensor for the fluid level may be bad.

Should you add oil if low oil level light is on ?

Check oil level on the dip stick first to confirm that the oil is actually low. Then add oil if necessary.

The warning light is telling you the oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
Could be a faulty switch or you could have a problem with the oil pump in the engine.

I have a GMC Sierra 2008 and the light of the engine come on and The Oil Pressure is to low, can you tell me what is going on Thanks

Sounds like you are triggering the check engine light due to low oil pressure. I would check your oil level and see if you are ok with oil. If you are then go to the nearest parts store and have them run a diagnostics (free) and tell you what the code is reading. That way you know what is going on. I have a feeling though that your oil pump is going bad and you are going to need a new oil pump

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?

The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.
