If car drives and feels normal it could be just a bad sending unit but things need to be checked. The sending unit can be unscrewed and a gauge attached to see actual pressure if pressure is good change sending unit if it's not.... Easiest and cheapest is SEAFOAM. LUCAS also makes a good product to raise oil pressure

My check oil light keep on blinking on my 97 toyota Avalon. I noticed it started blinking after I changed my radiator. Did I hit the sensor when changing the radiator? Oil is full.


the real question is do you really have oil pressure, check wires on oil sensor pressure switch or sending unit , the other is a pluged oil pressure sending unit but take the time to check oil pressure with a manual gauge if all elese fails

If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

Have you ever heard of the engine oil reservoir being full and the dipstick reading empty? I just bought an old 1985 toyota pickup truck and it was fine until I had my oil changed. After driving for a...


When your car is low on oil, there is a sensor (sometimes called a switch, as well) that will light up an indicator inside the car to inform you of the low oil level. In some cases, checking the dipstick will show that there is actually oil present, which can be confusing and frustrating because it contradicts the sensor. If this happens to be the case, more than likely the oil pressure switch/sensor is malfunctioning and will need replacing.

Keep us updated.

Blinking oil light, when oil is full


The oil gets lighter as the engine heats up.
Was this problem there before you changed the oil? If no, thn the grade of the engine oil you have used (replace) could be of wrong specs., try using a higher grade.
Hope this helps!

OIL SENSOR LIGHT FLASHING


in some newer cars, they have light that blink like this to tell you that you need an oil change. they are just set on a timer to go off every 3500-5500 miles or it could be a malfuctioning oil pressure sensor. either way its a eawsy fix. take the car to a oil change shop to have them verify which one.
