Engine is running fine. Oil level is good. Oil light comes on and off at random. Engine isn't knocking and runs great. Recently changed to GTX extended milage oil. Problem developed


The oil light comes on when the oil pressure sensor detects low oil pressure. The amount of oil has little to with it, although very low oil levels can cause loss of oil pressure. Since you aren't getting knocking, chances are the oil pressure sensor is defective. Replace it and monitor the situation closely. This could be a serious condition if allowed to escalated and it turns out to be an oil pressure issue.

Ive got oil in the car but the oil light keeps comeing on and off


The oil light indicates low oil PRESSURE, not oil VOLUME.
BUT, I have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad on me before, indicating low oil pressure while in fact oil pressure was fine.
If your oil fill cap (where oil is added to engine) is on a valve cover, remove cap while engine is running. If you get an oil mist or oil spray out of it, or if you can see oil spraying when looking down hole (use a flashlight), then you have oil pressure, and the oil light sending unit probably is bad and needs replacing.

Oil pressure light comes on and says that the oil pressure has dropped. but the truck is running fine


You could change the oil pressure sending unit to see if it is faulty, or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

1984 chevrolet cavalier cs oil pressure warning light on but runs fine and oil level is ok. What could be the problem. Is there a sending unit that can be checked?


if the oil level is good and clean, and there is no noise in the motor then it will be the oil pressure switch that is bad and needs replacing.

The Warning Light Comes on "Stop Engine Low Oil Pressure" what does this mean


car needs oil pressure or bearings will wear out in short time. Do not drive or start engine with this light on. Might only be pressure sending unit. Can replace sending unit and start briefly to see if problem resolves. If light still stays on, shut off engine and have oil pump replaced.

Engine runs fine oil checks out good yet oil light comes on?


You need to verify that oil pressure is ok.
They sell gauge at the parts store which has to be connected to the engine block via oil pressure sender hole.
For that , take out oil pressure sender(unscrew) and screw the gauge in to the hole (con thread).Run the engine and see if pressure is ok at idle and on higher RPM.Gauge suppose to have scale (norm. , low , high ).If oil pressure within specs , repl. oil pressure sender.
Or just replace oil pressure sender and see if that helps.They are not expensive ~ $30.00 , gauge probably the same money.

My stop light keeps coming up with the problem oil pressure,i have a golf gti turbo


Get the oil pressure tested with an outside gauge. If you run short of oil pressure, turbo and engine will suffer, as you know....

If you are actually short on pressure, you would need to investigate further, usually no good answers there....

But commonly a transducer fails and gives wrong readings, hope for this result
