Did you disconnect the battery while you changed the oil sensor? If not, disconnect your battery for a few minutes and re connect it again. This resets all sensors. When you change sensors and dont cut the power, it keeps the same codes as it had when it was last shut down. Hope this helps. Car may also run a bit rough while it is resetting itself.

Replaced oil sensor light still comes on


MAY---May-be you really have low oil pressure.. The way this sensor works is when you turn off the engine it closes to ground.. and when you start the engine.. the oil pressure opens it and the light goes out.. SO.. if the wire going to it is grounded out somewhere between the sensor and the dash board the light will stay on.. 3 choices.. 1. bad sensor (even though you replaced it) 2. wire is shorted to ground.. remove wire from sensor while engine is running.. light should go out. 3. you actually have really low oil presure. next.. after you have exuasted #1-2. you can remove sensor and install a real oil pressure guage and see what the pressure really is.. If you have very low or no oil pressure..1. Check oil level.(probably should have done this first) 2.pull oil pan and replace oil pump.. while you are there check a main bearing and a rod bearing for wear.. worn out bearings will cause low oil pressure. If you have good oil pressure install the pressure guage permanetly and forget about light.

Check engine oil


Needs to be checked at the dipstick,
Under the bonnet on the engine!
The warning light, on most vehicles,
Only comes on when the oil is drastically low!!!!

My check engine light is on. Advance Auto Parts says it is the PO 325 Knock Sensor Malfunction Bnk 1 or Single Sensor. My Subaru is a 1996 Impreza. I also have a fast blinking left turn signal that...


  1. Knock sensor. Check all the wiring connections on the engine heads. Your sensor probably is failed (but see Overheating #3 below) .
  2. fast blinking left turn signal. The front bulb has failed, so replace it.
  3. oil temperature light. This may be an indirect result of #1, as the engine is not running properly and this can cause overheating (but see Overheating #3 below)
Other causes of overheating ...
  1. low oil level
  2. low coolant level. If you are losing coolant, the cause has to be located. The correct fill method is to top up the radiator, then repeatedly squeeze the top rad hose, to "burp" all the air out of the cooling system. You will hear the coolant squishing in the top of the engine. Keep burping until the coolant squishing noise stops.
  3. head gasket(s) may be failing, a not uncommon problem for your engine model. Check for oil in the coolant.

A light comes on in my car that says oil pressure low stop engine now but i have oil in my vehicle and even had the car checked for my 2006 chevy impala


If the light is only turning on during acceleration or deceleration and then goes off, this is normal. If the light is constant, and you are sure you have oil that is up to the "full" or "max" level on the dipstick while hot, then it might point to a faulty oil pump or worn gaskets that will no longer prevent the oil from staying in place in the engine. Is this light accompanied by a check engine light. If so what is the code. You may also have a faulty oil sensor. Hope this helps

The oil light comes on at times and goes off as the rpms go up. What can be done about the light?


Maybe your engine is idling too slowly, If the revs are below say 700rpm the low pressure warning light could come on especially when the engine is hot.. If the idle speed is ok try a heavier grade of oil in the engine. Next try a new oil pressure sensor. It's got to be one of these things. Check the engine running temperature . An over-hot engine will cause the oil light to come on too.

Oil light comes on only when at an idle


I just had the same problem on an 04 Sebring with a 2.7L V6. The oil pressure sensor (switch) was the culprit. Several web references that I checked mention that the original sensors have issues with oil leakage, which eventually causes it to fail. The sensor itself is fairly inexpensive..about $15. It is located on the back side of the engine and is only accessible from under the car. Look for a small heat shield held on by three 15mm bolts. It is just to the driver's side of where the exhaust system goes behind the engine. The oil sensor is located under this shield. You will need a 1 1/4" deep socket to remove it. When installing the new sensor, be sure to use a torque wrench. It needs to be tightened to 14 ft/lb. Using more force than that, and you run the risk of damaging the sensor.

If this doesn't resolve the problem, you may have a problem with the oil pump either being defective or blocked with sludge. As one of the other gurus on here mentioned, this engine does have a known problem with sludge buildup. I hope this helps! Good luck!

Oil pressure guage dropping


Sounds like the sensor is failing.Have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage to confirm. A new sensor or wiring repair is allot cheaper then a new engine!!
