Question about Cars & Trucks
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.
