SOURCE: Oil Pump light flickering + rough idle on 1996 Nissan Maxima

Sounds more like the Throttle Position Sensor or another sensor is letting the engine RPM's drop too low. When the RPM's are too low, the oil pump is not pumping enough oil.

I have an 2005 FORD Focus Zetec. After a long run 30 miles the oil light will come on when the engine is idling at about 1,000 revs. It doesnt do this on shorter local trips.


have a oil pressure test done using a mechanical gauge
that will determine if oil pressure sender unit is operational or not
that will then decide if the oil pump is failing
if the engine is original then it may be worn at points that is allowing excessive passing of oil ( hydraulic belt/chain tensioner) rocker arm bushes, big ends , mains, valve for the camshaft position control
The oil you should be using would be a 30w50 viscosity

My 2005 Envoy's low oil pressure light will come on when I am at a stop and my car is ideling. My oil gauge will also drop. I just change the oil and filter about 1 month ago


When engine is idling the oil pressure sign can come up and that is OK. However if you've noticed that gauge shows much lower oil pressure that a bad sign. Show it to knowledgeable mechanic (but don't be lured in the engine replacement; ask for a root cause - it may be oil receiver or oil pump). Also I hope there's no oil puddles under the car? What about oil level?

00 lincon navigator 5.4 oil pressure drop's low and light comes on , engine idles rough when pressure drops ,then pressure return s to normal range ,light goes out ,engine runs perfect. Is it my oil


Sounds more like an engine idle issue than a oil pressure issue. If the engine idle drops too low, the oil pump cannot provide sufficient oil pressure. If there is no oil light when the engine is idling normally, then there is no problem there.

0il light comes on when car is in idle..2005 nissan altima


If the oil level is low, or the oil pump is worn out, this can happen. It indicates a dropping of oil pressure either due to oil moving forward away from the sump (low oil), or reduction of pressure due to lower rpms (worn out pump).

Oil light on after engine warm-up on idle


this means a mechanical gauge test is required to check actual pressure warm idling if low below 20 psi then the oil pressure pump relief is stuck open or engine bearing are worn

Why do oil light come on after replaceing oil sending unit on 2005 dodge carvan


The engine produces oil pressure from the resistance(clearance ) between the bearings and crankshaft and the sending unit lets you know when there is no pressure. These switches ground the light in the dash around 5 psi. So as the engine gets warmer then the oil gets thinner with large amounts of clearance pressure drops. Test system with mechanical unit normal hot idle pressure should be 30-45 psi if low raise idle speed comes up then engine bearings are worn.

Where is the oil pressure sensor lacted on a 1996 s10 2.2 Pickup


How much below 30 is it dropping? Oil pressure when in DRIVE at idle on a hot engine, is NORMAL at around 18 to 20 Psi. The warning lamp does not come on until around 7 Psi.

With that said, the oil pressure switch (for the light) is located on the lower left front of the engine. The fuel pump oil pressure switch and sender (for the gauge and fuel pump operation) is on the lower right front of the engine.

I have a 2001 suzuki vitara the oil light comes on at low idle


means your oil pressure is dropping below an acceptable standard. the oil pump is operated by the crank shaft so when the RPMs drop, so does the output of the pump. the engine is 10 years old and like everything else it, and its components, wears out with age and use.

you can try replacing the oil pressure sensor, but most likely the problem is an old pump. an alternative would be to jack up the idle a bit so the pump runs a bit faster at idle.

Oil pressure drops to zero at idle. Check engine light comes on. Codes are 11,12,54. Had crank and cam sensors replaced. Wants to die when problem occurs. restarts easy. Do not hear engine clatter when...


Locate the oil pressure sending unit and get a pressure test for yourself. If it is okay, replace oil pressure sending unit. If the pressure is 0. Replace the oil pump. Probably not 0 because engine would seize.

I have a 95 eclipse gst. wondering why the oil light comes on at low idle. when you bring up the idle it turns off.


Those oil lights come on when the oil pressure drops below a certain PSI. Usually it's about 5-7 PSI. If your oil pressure is actually dropping that far it's a sign that your engine is wearing out. The oil pressure is caused by the oil pump trying to force oil past the bearings in your engine. When the bearing get worn, it take less pressure to force the oil though the bearings, thus the pressure drops. But, the good news is, it might just be a bad sending unit for the oil light. I guess I would have a mechanic put a mechanical gauge on the engine for test purposes and see what the actual pressure is. Hopefully, it's just the sending unit, good luck.
