Could be a oil sending unit going out or is clogged up. I would go for that first with an oil change. Use some engine oil treatment with it also. If the light continues to come on, then the bearing at the crankshaft are worn. Options would be to rebuild the engine, replace the engine, or find another car.

Oil light is on and engine in limp mode


check the oil level in the sump, coolant level, coolant temperature (overheating), transmission oil level if auto. The limp mode is energised by any number of sensors that register a fault that is detrimental to the engine/ gear box. Run the fault codes and repair any faulty units . Reset the CPU with a scanner .

What are the steps in changing the oil in a 1986 Lincoln Town Car


1) Purchase appropriate oil filter, sump drain bung washer and chosen engine oil.
2) Prepare an oil pan, sump bung wrench and oil filter removal tool (check access to oil filter to be sure that your tool is suitable.)
3) Run the engine until its warm to hot.
4) With the car jacked up and secured, remove engine oil filler cap and remove engine oil sump drain bung and allow oil to flow out into your drain pan. Keep an eye on your oil and make sure it doesn't overflow from your drain pan.

5) Refit sump bung with new washer and tighten. Do not over-tighten, and be especially careful when tightening into an alluminium sump.


6) Remove oil filter. Oil will flow out from this filter when removing, so your drain pan will need to be under the filter housing when removing.


7) Run a smear of clean engine oil around the filter rubber seal and refit new filter. Tighten hand tight only. Do NOT crank this filter super tight as you may damage the rubber seal and even the filter casing which can impede oil flow.


8) Refill engine with proper quantity of oil. If you cannot find how much oil your engine is supposed to take, then refill with the same quantity of oil which you drained out.


9) Restart the engine while checking the oil pressure warning light on the dash. The warning light may stay on for three or four seconds and then go out. If this light stays on for longer, then stop your engine and check for oil leaks at the filter body and sump drain bung.


10) Once the engine oil pressure warning light is off after starting, stop the engine and check the engine oil level (with vehicle on the flat and off any axle stands.)


11) Road test the vehicle, driving it for a mile or two before re-checking for oil leaks under the engine bay and engine oil quantity.

Oil min. warning comes on, checked oil level, on max, shut bonnet, drive for a mile comes back on. changed the oil sensor in sump. now oil sensor fault comes on


this is just a thought , but i would first replace oil pressure switch as this is cheap start to solving your problem , i wonder if you have caused air leak when chnageing oil sensor in sump by not sealing sump correctly ,? the other thing may be you oil pump is worn causing incorrect oil pressure , which may be reason for your oil problems in the beginning , hope this helps , i know what its like when you run out of idea's good luck .

Oil light comes on after 10 mins of driving. we have removed the sump pan and cleaned the oil pick up pipe but fault is still there so i want to replace the oil pump but i need to no the location and what...


If you did the sump drop; you should also do the PCV #6 upgrade. I would'nt look at the oil pump yet. You may have a bad oil sensor. Did you remove the valve cover to see what it looks like? you could have a clooged breather port. Did you do an engine flush before you dropped the sump? If you remove the VC start the engine to see if oil squirts out then you will know if the pump is good.

Dashboard indicator flicking ie oil light and battery light


As the engine temp increases, oil returns to the sump (pump location) faster. You may just be low on oil. When its cold, the light is on at times...

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.

Engine knocking on toyota corolla after replacing damaged sump


oil pan and sump damage are very likely to lead to oil distribution problems, this is not temporary, if you hear a knock have it checked by a local mechanic who can verify it for you, it is possible that the engine is damaged internally.

VW Golf 51 Plate Oil Pressure Indicator Light


Hi.
The "oil light" measures the oil pressure in the engine, not the oil level in the sump. I would not drive it an inch until I had it checked by a competent mechanic. New engines are expensive!

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
