Make sure that the oil pressure switch is definitely the right one for your engine. also that the oil is a good quality oil.as the engine gets hotter the oil gets thinner, weaker and sounds like it is not strong eneough to keep the light out. hope this helps.

I had the same problem...my 96 had a bad carbon build up in the metal tube to the right of the intake manifold...what i did was took it off and soaked the tube in gas for 1/2 hour the blew it out with compressed air....while your at it you should clean that port on the intake where that metal tube was.....once all carbon chipped away, it is very important that you vacume the inside of the manifold....how you do that take the air intake off and stick your shop vac on that port where the tube was, then open your carb by hand and that should clean it right out!

Engine oil lamp some times blinks comes on and later when restart it does not come I have Kia Sorento 2009


The oil light will come on when ever pressure is low it ct can be as little as the oil pressure sensor is going out or you may have a blockage somewhere in the oil system try doing an oil change with mobile1 oil this may help if there is a small blockage but defiantly get the sensor checked first

Oil light blinking


there is always the possibility that you really have low oil pressure when you get this light, at idle the engines oil pump produces the least pressure and if there are problems then that is when it shows up, so have the oil pressure tested by a shop with a mechanical test gage, if the oil pressure is within spec then replace the oil pressure light sending unit on the engine, I don't recommend you drive this until u are sure of the pressure, u can SEVERELY damage the engine is the pressure is really low.

2000 Chrysler Sebring V6 oil pressure light comes on when oil is warm. Replaced the seals and value cover and still the light comes on while Idel now drops below 5 rmp


Here is how I fixed the low oil pressure light problem without using any parts, only the labor to remove the oil pressure sensor is needed. I have an 02 seabring convertible 2.7L engine and I was having the same problem with my oil light coming on at an idle. I bought a new sensor replaced the old one and had the same problem. I than got a test kit and tested my oil pressure. It was very good, never lower than 11 PSI hot at an idle. I was reading about the wire connector modification, but I had an 02 and this mod came out in 98, surely Chrysler incorporated this mod on its newer vehicles. Well after checking more they did not and this is what turned me off on Chrysler products forever. For a manufacturer to produce a vehicle with a known defect and a modification fix and not incorporated this modification on its newer vehicles is inexcusable. After reading that the modification was to stop pressure build up in the sensor housing I decided to make a pressure release hole in the sensor housing. I took my old oil pressure sensor and using a 1/8 inch bit I drilled a small hole at the base of the plastic sensor tower. I put the old sensor in and drove for a week, no problem with my light coming on. To test further I took the new oil pressure sensor I bought and drilled a hole in it. Put it in and I've been driving for months and no problem with my oil pressure light coming on now.

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.

Oil light and brake lights blinks on and off and abs light is on


Just a idea. If the car is running at idle and the oil light blinks , it usually from low oil pressure. At a idle your seeing the light respond to the revolutions of the engine. ! thing to try is to replace the oil pressure switch on the engine block. And #2, Most causes in a VW is that the vehicle overheated at one time and weekend the oil pump,or massive amount of miles.

Oil light stays on 3.0 no lubrication to upper heads


Try pulling the electrical connector for the oil pressure sensor first. Examine the connections on both the connector and the sensor terminals and clean up both any dirt, grease, or corrossion. Reattach the connector and check the oil light again. If it is still lighting up, replace the sensor/sending unit.

If your engine is the OHV Vulcan engine, the oil pressure sensor/sending unit is at the rear of the block, just ahead of the transaxle. If you have the OHC engine, the sensor/sending unit is on front side of the block above the oil filter.

Why do you note "no lubrication in upper heads"? How would you know that? Next step if sensor replacement does not help, is running the OBDII Diagnostics and checking the trouble codes, if any.
