Once having checked the oil level and made sure it has the right grade in it, if the engine is not rattly or making knocking sounds this probably is not a worry, as long as the light never comes on when cruising.

It is possible the oil pressure sender is faulty. You could find out more by removing the sender and attaching an oil pressure gauge to see if all is well at higher revs.

I keep losing oil pressure when im at an idle but when i acc. the pressure comes back up and i have checked the oil it is fine

What is the make/model of the Jeep? What engine? Are you losing pressure completely or is it just low at idle? Many older Jeeps show little oil pressure at idle when the engine is warm. If you aren't hearing rattling like you are actually losing oil pressure, and the pressure comes up when you accelerate, you are probably OK.

I changes oil in my 1997 aurora and i put 5w 30 back in. after it warmed up the low pressure light comes on at idle.What might be the problem

with it being a 97, the oil pump could be worn if high milage. thus causing less pressure. try 10w30, it wont hurt a thing.

Accelerates when foot off petal in park. battery light and change oil light come on as car locks up also the oil Gage drop to the red . changed the oil and got a new battery last week.

It could be your idle control sensor or the idle itself needs adjusted. It could also be a MAP sensor. You might have a few problems happening. You really need a code from the computer. Any questions, please contact me. Try the sensor first. You can test the old one with a voltage meter.

Oil light comes on when idling. has plenty oil & was recently changed with new filter

The oil light means that the oil pressure is to low. This is a bad problem, with big expensive fixes. Don't drive to long without getting it checked, or trade for another.

Describe your 1997 Jeep Wrangler 1997 jeep wrangler 4 cyl idle fluctuates 900 rpm to 400 rpm after warmup no service engine light but check guages light comes on momentarily when rpm gets low and oil press...

The check gauges light is normal because at 400 rpm it isn't running fast enough to build sufficient oil pressure. I am guessing maybe a vaccum leak???

Oil light keeps coming on at an idle

ok. oil ight is probably nothing more than a faulty pressure switch.You can have pressure checked at same screw in port. 15psi is ok...just. very cheap to replace. Ign control module is probably the cut-out fault. You cant really test it; repair by substitution is the trick.
