No oil pressure when idling/stoplight


What is the mileage on the vehicle? What type of oil are you using, synthetic or conventional oil? Older engines that have a fair amount of wear (loose essentially). I had this problem on two different vehicles. If the oil is not near time to be changed (fairly clean oil) I would get a new oil filter and prepare it by filling it with STP oil treatment. This is thick stuff and will thicken your oil. Remove the old oil filter and put the new one on. Start the engine and let it idle for a minute then shut it off. Check the oil level and add more STP to bring it back up to the full mark. Start it and check the oil pressure. If this helps bring the pressure up then I'd say its time to go to a thicker oil. I switched to 0w40 synthetic after trying 5w30 (5w30 is recommended by mfr.) and have had no more trouble. The thing is that synthetic oil tends to thin more at temperature than conventional oil does.

Oil pressure problem


if you have a 4jx1 3.0 engine then the engine wont run properly because engine oil pressure is what drives the direct injection system.
Check for blocked oil filters 2 pieces if not remove the oil pan and check the oil pickup tube for oil sludge blockage

1995 Taurus 70,000 miles. When sitting at a light or what naught, the oil light flickers. Checked the oil, at full level. This vehicle has had it's oil changed every 3500 miles.


I would verify the actual oil pressure is with a "wet gauge'. The sending unit may be bad. I would also verify if it's idling at the right idle speed.

Oil gauge keeps coming on, keep checking oil is good but gauge keeps coming on why? shuts off when we start up again but after a few miles comes on again but when we turn off motor and star up dosen't...


This oil (I'm assuming you mean the light) gauge is telling you not that your oil is low, but that your oil pressure is low. This can happen in high mileage engines after they've gotten worn out, or if the oil pressure sender fails or gets plugged. You'll want to have someone check your oil pressure with a manual gauge to verify which is the problem, and then it'll either mean a new sender, or a different or overhauled engine.

Oil gauge drops all the way down and check gauge light comes on


Could be the oil pressure sender has gone bad or worse case scenario the oil pump has worn out. Check the oil presssure sender first, if it is leaking around it then that is the cause, if not then you may be looking at an oil pump. Just had a 03 ram 2500 doing the same thing and it was the sender, but that was a hemi and it had 230000 miles and a month later had to replace the oil pump for same issue.

Low oil pressure 93 GMC P/U w/350 motor w/205,000 miles gauge


While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

1995 Jaguar XJ6 oil pressure gauge


This is OK. Oil pressure is always higher when the engine is cold.

As an engine accumulates miles the pressure will start to drop due to bearing clearances increasing.

If this just started to happen you may want to replace the oil filter and or oil pressure sending unit.

Oils pressure gauge fluctuates


check the oil viscosity,it might be too old(driven for toomany miles)..

if thats not ityou might need to get the oil preasure lubricating pump checked,and id suggest you do it fast or theres a lot of engine wear and tear.

Change the oil! The 318Cu in V8 (5.2 liter) engine has a problem with sludge build up on the oil pump pickup tube screen. This engine requires oil changes at or before 3500 miles with a high detergent oil.
