Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
When my truck is idling my oil light will come on but when driving it goes off. Checked oil level and is fine. Oil pump?
More than likely, It might be worth giving the oil system a flush out. If the engine hasn't been properly maintained, sludge can build up in the oilways which can restrict oil flow at low pressure.

SOURCE: check engine light has come on
You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why the light is on.
If there is an advanced auto or an autozone near you, go there and tell them the engine light is on, and you need a code retrieved. They don't charge for this, where other places do. Tales about a minute.

Generally the computer is reading a problem with the fuel pressure being to high or to low. The ICP is one problem it could be and you changed it. The other could be Fuel pressure regulator control solenoid or problems with the injector (s).

Testimonial: "thanks alot, this pretty much confirmed what i thought. someone befor me put an elec. fuel pump and straight wired it to the ign. thanks."
this is due to low oil pressure. i would do an oil change and get an oil filter from the dealer(actually you should be able to get motorcraft filters at any parts store) but dont use fram. up grade your oil to the next heavier weight( 10w 30 go to 10w 40) and see if this make a difference. if no difference is noticed the next diagnostic step is to see your technician and have himperform whats called a wet oil test. by this i mean that the pressure sesnor is only taking pressure and converting it into an electrical signal which if the sensor is bad..... so he takes out the sensor and replaces it with an actual gauge to read pressures. this is the most acurate way to test. from there he will be able to advise you on the next step of repair.

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.
