94 Lexus GS300 Amber Oil Light Went On and Off

As I was driving down the interstate I noticed that an amber oil light lit up on the instrument cluster. After slowing down and five miles down the road the light went off. This is the first time I have ever seen this happen. I have 140,000 miles on the car and have kept it in good running condition. Any ideas what might be the cause?

    I have a 2000 GS300 , the red oil light came on.The car is well maitained with regular oil change at 3,000 miles,it runs very good.No knocking or smoke

    I took it to the dealer to read the codes.They said that they will either rebuild the engine or replace it.That red light nis very bad

    It was half quart low and it has 138,000 miles.

    They added some oil, and reset the codes and I drove it five miles home The light did not come on again.

    I wander if I should take it to a mechanic to flush the engine and wait and see if that will help it

The oil light remains on after an oil change/filter. The car is lexus 2000, Gs300. The milage is more than 100,125 miles. What is the prblem?

It depends. If you are talking about the RED oil pressure warning light, the problem is either that your engine has oil pressure problems or it has a defective oil pressure sending unit. If it is actual oil pressure problems, major engine repair or replacement will be necessary to fix it.

Check engine light went on

the check engine light is for the engine electronic controls, there is a fault, have the trouble codes tested by the dealer to see what is making the light come on. I assuming this light is yellow/amber colored? if not, and it is red it is a low oil pressure warning light, in that case the oil pressure sending unit on the engine may be defective.
