There could be several reasons for the problem. The first is the plug is off the sensor, thus no reading. Second the sensor itself has gone bad. Buy a new one and replace it, they are not too expensive. The guage in the dash has gone bad (big pain, buy aftermarket unit and install) and forth the ECM has decided to go bad on that particular guage (very expensive to replace). Have a shop put a trouble code reader on the truck and see what it says the problem is and go from there. You can check the wire to the sensor yourself. Also follow the wiring back from the sensor and make sure there isn't another plug that is not all the way plugged in. A lot of times when the vehicle is worked on and a plug is disconnected and put back together one of the pins in the plug will slide back and not go into the plug, thus causing a problem. So look for that also. Good Luck, RAC

Oil pressure gauge reading zero


check the oil pressure first, it should read around 10 to 14 psi. If pressure is inside the range then your pressure sensor is bad. If lower or reads 0 psi your got a engine problem, further diagnosis needed. Good luck.

Oil pressure gauge reads zero, engine appears to be running fine with no noises what so ever, no oil leaks, oil level is normal.


The oil pressure should be verified by removing the oil pressure sending unit and installing a gauge to take a direct reading. If the oil pressure is ok, the problem is most likely a bad pressure sensor (although it could also be a bad gauge or circuits).

If the gauge verifies that the oil pressure is indeed low, then the oil pan needs to come of for an inspection of the oil pick-up tube and the engine bearings.

I have a 1998 volks beetle .. oil light has come on .. i checked oil .. says dry .. i add'd some .. then says fine.. then 10 min later says dry .. and there is no apparent leaks that i can see .. is...


If your dipstick reads dry, do NOT run the engine or drive it until you find the leak-there is no reasonable explaination for that condition, it is leaking somehow, period. If you insist on driving it, it will damage or destroy the engine in a very short time-get it checked out (have it towed), it is going to be a very expensive problem if you let it go.

My oil light is on and beeping like crazy on my 1997 volkswagon jetta and something in the motor keeps clicking on top of that i would like to know why?


Usually when the oil light comes on, its too late to save the engine if the sensor is working properly.

Check the oil in your engine under the hood. If it has the correct amount of oil, check the wire going to the oil pressure sensor located on the side of the engine. It may be loose or the sensor may have failed sending a false reading.

If you do not have oil in the engine " no oil pressure" you may have badly hurt the engine, and the noise you are hearing is the rocker arms begging for mercy.

Good luck! write back

After oil change, pressure gage drops to zero and check gages light comes on after running for five minutes. oil is still full though.


Remove, check and replace the Oil Pressure Sensor. It should be located adjacent to the Oil Filter.

Oil pressure gauge reads zero


If your engine is still running and not noisy, likely the lead on the sending unit has fallen off or the sender has failed. Check that and do what needs to be done there.(re-connect or replace). If the engine is noisy, do not run it at all and have it checked out immediately. However, likely serious damage has already been done. Also make sure the oil level is full.
