You would either replace the pressure switch, or use a mechanical gauge to check actual pressure.

When letting off the gas and stopping, why does check engine light come on?


You should check your oil level before starting the car again. If the oil level is good, and the oil in good shape, you may have a weak oil pump.

Engine light on with P2096 code


Did you replace the O2 sensor after the catalytic converter? This code is set by the rear O2 sensor. It usually indicates early failure or restricted catalytic converter. May want to have an exhaust back pressure test performed.

OIL LITE WENT ON LIFTERS WRE NOISY OIL LEVEL IS GOOD HOW CAN YOU CHECK TO SEE IF OIL PUMP IS GOOD


I would be checking the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge . If you have used the correct viscosity oil the lifters should stop being noisy after a minute of starting the engine . If it is the pump then you will have to replace it but it may be a loose oil pick up line or loose pump allowing the oil pressure to escape back into the sump.

Oil light stays on even after complete oil change


It sounds like your oil pump is going bad..Well bd now since you said the light stayed on...And the noise you hear is the sound of a engine not getting enough oil, to lube all those metal parts,,,,You can replace your oil pump, and hopefully you didnt do too much damage to the motor....Goodluck...

Oil light


To reset the oil change maintenance light is somewhat tricky.
When you first turn the car on ( without starting it ), you have 5 seconds to pump the gas 3 times. If it's done correctly, the display will say RESET in a few seconds.

The oil pump broke down or the oil pickup was blocked not feeding oil to the engin. The bad news, the engin is probely ceised and will cost a lot of money to repair, if it is repaireble.Alternetive is to replace the engin. Could be cheaper than repair.

How to replace valve cover gaskets on 1995 BMW 530I


sounds like a leaky oil presure switch. they will leak oil out of the wires comming out of them sometimes saturating the connector of the switch. If that isnt the problem then your oil pump is weak causing the lite to come on or your leak is so bad your oil level is so low the lite is coming on

The check engine light is on.


Sometimes disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. Make sure you have the correct radio code before doing this or your radio will not work after disconnecting the battery.

1997 Grand Am not starting


It could be that your oil or coolant level is still low. When your oil or cooant level is low, your computer senses that and either shuts the fuel pump off or sets limits to it's operation.
