Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima
After the car is warmed up and running for awhile, when I come to a stop the oil light flickers a little bit and it idles rough for a second or two. This only happens when the rpm's are low, around its idle at about 5 or 600 rpm when stopped in drive. It started out happening every now and again, but is happening with more frequency. Would it be important for me to get the oil pressure checked by a professional and possibly look into getting the oil pump replaced?
Sounds more like the Throttle Position Sensor or another sensor is letting the engine RPM's drop too low. When the RPM's are too low, the oil pump is not pumping enough oil.
