Sounds like the oil pump went bad.
Also check the oil sending unit,and the antiknock sensor.

2002 Chevrolet Malibu oil light on & valves clattering


Check the oil level on the dip stick and make it correct. This engine should have a low oil shut down feature. Possible oil pump failure. With oil at correct level, restart engine. If the oil light does not go out with engine running, shut down immediately. Severe Internal rotating component bearing damage has already occurred. look for loose oil filter or hole in oil pan.

Loss of oil pressure


How many miles are on the motor? Are you using the correct weight oil?

As oil warms, it gets thinner, and the pressure will drop as a result. When you say the pressure comes back after re-starting, is that after the vehicle has been sitting long enough for the oil to cool down, or does the pressure come back if you shut down and immediately restart?

2006 jeep liberty dying randomly. Oil change and new air filter. About to change spark plugs and wires. No gauge lights, no sputtering. Just turns off randomly, starts right back up when I put in neutral...


My 2006 Liberty has a similar issue. The oil light beeps and then the engine shuts off. I put the car in park and it restarts and the oil light goes off. I had the oil, filter, and lines checked and everything checked out. The mechanic thinks it may be the oil sensor going out and that for safety reasons the engine shuts down when the oil light comes on.

Low oil light comes on but goes out after restart.. this started happening recently .. the oil lvl is fine ive checked it many times it only comes on after its sat overnight at the first start.. shut it...


In this case it is usually the low oil level sensor that is defective; however it could be an issue in that electrical circuit as well from the scenario you have given.
