SOURCE: 1989 Ford Mustang GT Drop in Oil Pressure gage

I hate be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like you bottom end bearings are getting worn out. You have excessive bearing clearances causing your drop in oil pressure.

SOURCE: Oil Light

I had the same issue. On the back of the engine (behind steering column) you'll see a pressure sensor with a wire going to it...check your connection. If that doesn't work, then your pressure sensor is probably at the end of it's road. You can get a new one for about 15 bucks at any parts store...hope this helps

Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

Oil light for low oil pressure on


The lite is there to warn you that there is something wrong, could be low oil level, check the oil level, could be that the sender unit is defective, get the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage to verify oil pressure. If the mechanical gage shows low oil pressure with the proper oil level then you need to have your unit repaired

Oil gage goes from middle to low @ stop


no year stated.

What does the check gages light mean?


It means that one of the gauges is registering an abnormal reading, like low oil pressure or an overheating engine. Hence the warning of CHECK GAUGES" Please read your owners manual for more info on this subject.

Where is it located and what does the oil sending unit do?


Your oil sending unit is located somewhre on the engine. It will be round and about 1 to 1.5 inch across. It will have a wire attached to the top of it. I dont know the specific location on your particular car.

What does it do? It is a diaphram operated device that sends a signal to your oil gage or warning light. The engine side is exposed to oil pressure in the engine. The oil presses against the diaphram. The diaphram is attached to a variable resistor device that operates the gage. Low pressure on the diaphram -= low signal to the gage; Hight pressure on the diaphram = high signal to the gage.

Check gages light coms on and the oil presure gage gose down when engien is warm and in drive or revers


Replace your oil pressure sender and see if the dash warning lights turn off. If after changing the oil pressure sender you still have oil pressure warning lights on, you may have to replace your oil pump in your oil pan.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance
