Most likely this is a sensor adjustment issue.

How to put oil in a space wagon 1996
the black cap where it says mitsubishi diesel.
oil should be changed regularly and flushed out along with new filter, just keeping topping up is not good, change according to service manual

Changing your oil filter

Oil filters these days are in the darndest places. Of course I long for the day when I could use my handy oil filter wrench. Alas those days might be gone forever. If you can get your bare hand on it but it still will not come off. Make sure it's clean and dry of grease, then use a rubber jar opener from the kitchen. It should come right off. Please remember since you are the guy who will likely change your oil next time, the new filter should be hand tightened only.

Oil light come on @ Idlie

If the check oil light goes on your vehicle, pull over as quickly and safely as you can. Turn off the engine, then put on your hazard lights and open the hood. Check the oil and then add oil if it is low. Restart the engine and check the light. The check oil light means that your oil is very low.

2002 jeep oil light comes one when it is cold outside. as vehicle warms up (20 miles) or the engine slows down (stop lights) the light goes off. Mechanic has change oil light sensor, changed oil, said...

Has he fitted the correct pressure switch. You need one that goes open circuit under pressure, unlike brake system switch that goes short circuit when under pressure.

What would cause the engine light to come on in my 2006 sts

bad oil pressure or oxygen sensor or bad fuel mixture sensor or even a failing fuel injector. I sure wish they wouldnt put dummy lights in vehicles but instead there should be gauges because if it is oil pressure theres probably damage to motor because those dummy lights come on when its pretty much to late to stop damage..

Low oil pressure light comes on and i changed the sensor

does the oil pressure gauge show low oil pressure?is it low oil pressure light? or low oil light? 2 sensors on this vehicle.make sure you get a chevrolet oil sensor,aftermarket sensor do not do well,make sure your using 5w30 or 10w30 wieght oil,if you are putting out over 20 lbs at idle in gear,i see no problem,should go up to 40 or better on accel,if it is low oil pressure and the gauge conferms,possible engine wear

She oil light is on

open the hood, unscrew the oil cap. it is black and round and will have yellow writing on it. add a quart of 10w-30 oil, put the cap back on and see if the light comes back on. If this is too hard to understand, go to an auto part store, or an oil change place and ask them to check your oil level. Happy motoring!

I did not use my 2002 saturn sl2 for 2 weeks because I was out of state, when I came to use it it would not start, I had to "floor" the gas pedal until it started, then the service engine soon light came...

Well most likey you may have a Coolant Temp Sensor concern causing it to flood but it could also be from sitting as well.The SES probally come on due to it running a bit rough after starting & set a Misfire code.The Oil Change Light Is easy to re-set.Turn Ignition on but do not start,open hood,remove underhood fuse box cover hold down the red oil-r button for 5-8 secs.then check oil change soon lamp,should be flashing.Turn Ignition off & it's reset
