Changing the oil may fix the problem at least check the level is correct.

Location oil pressure sender unit 2002 ford escape xlt v6 3.0


check for correct oil level in the sump first
this indicates insufficient oil level and the surge of the oil when stopping is allowing air into the pump and putting the light on

2001 Ford Escape 3.0L V6 Engine Code P1409


Had this code for over 2 years on my 02 escape. FINALLY, found the solution. DONT replace your egr vacuum solenoid (unless you see broken pins on the connector). You can always test the solenoid to see if it still works if you suspect the solenoid is the culprit. Rather, most likely the problem will be in your electrical harness that connects from the solenoid to the pcm. I had no visible broken wires. However, in my case, my female connector harness that plugs into the solenoid was faulty. Replaced it by soldering the wires from a "new" harness that i got from the junk yard. If this fails for you, the problem will be almost guaranteed to be in either your pcm hardware or a broken pin at the pcm connection.

The engine stopped while driving on 2003 Ford escape. Oil light, check engine light and the battery light came on


oil, check engine and battery will always be on when the engine is dead--because there's no oil pressure, nor battery charging. A faulty oil pressure sending would never prevent the engine from starting. You'll have to tow it to a shop to find out why

2001 F150 pressure gauge reads zero and light comes on when slowing down to 1st gear and stopped, sometimes light and gauge goes off and pressure returns, but fluctuates...also when gas applied and vehicle...


I assume you mean "Oil" pressure...This is the first sign of the main bearings getting to the point of needing replacement. The fact that the pressure goes up when you accelerate tells me that the oil pump is working. There is just too much bearing clearance for the oil pump to keep enough volume flowing at idle to maintain pressure. In short, it's time for an overhaul. It will be less expensive if you do it now than if you wait until you spin a bearing and destroy a crankshaft, or put a rod through the side of the engine block.

My oil light comes on when I stop and goes off when I press the gas and start back driving.


Check and verify that your oil level is full on your engine oil dipstick, if its low add oil until its in the safe area of the dipstick, if your oil is full and your still having this problem, the problem is most likely a faulty oil pressure switch, replace the switch and your oil light problem should be fixed...

2001 ford escape.. oil light comes on when at a stop and in drive. when i give it the gas the light turns off. i checked my oil,brake,coolant and tranny fliuds and are all fine????? no funny sounds????


this light is indicating your engine has low oil pressure sensed at idle, have the oil pressure checked with a special mechanical oil gauge, if the oil pressure checks ok then just replace the oil pressure sending unit, do this ASAP, if u do really have low pressure u can damage the engine bearings, a very expensive fix.

No Engine Warning Light, but low engine power/shifting problems


well they dont have a timing belt they have a timing chain which is nice but i would take it to a mechanic with a ford scan tool to diagnose it its really hard to diagnose these newer vehicles over the net these days! it could be so many things from throttle position sensor to rev limiter issue!

Use of recommended oil viscosity (5w-20)


I ask that same question about my 2007 and was told that the main reason for the lite oil weight was to give better gas mileage. Still though I never changed because I got over tinkering with the manufactures specs. in my hot rod days. Stay with the 5-20W.
