SOURCE: low oil pressure

Hi, you will need to inspect the oil pump screen. it is clogged. normally when the light illuminates at low idle, its because of a clogged oil pump screen. Here is a little description about this device.

Also known as an oil pickup tube, this strainer assembly in the inlet side of oil pump circuit screens out larger impurities and debris before they enter the pump. A finely woven mesh screen is on the sump end of the assembly, and the opposite end of the assembly either presses into or bolts to the oil pump.

  • The oil pump sump screen, or pickup, must be checked to be sure it is clean.
  • A new oil pump does not come with a new screen.
  • Some rebuilders replace every screen with a new one.
  • A plugged screen can ruin a new engine in a very short time.
To access most oil pump screens, the Engine Oil Pan must be removed.

Please rate and god bless:)

The idle may be to low or the motor is just old and a new set of rod bearings is need with an oilpump to bring the pressure back up.

What should i see when looking at my oil gage

If you have a needle display, the dial has to be in the middle or higher. The low side will mean you are not getting enough RPM at idle or if low when above 20MPH the oil level is low or you have a bad oilpump or bearings.

In rare occasions, diluted oil will show low and can fail to lubricate the engine due to contamination. You need to act quickly to change the oil and filter when this happens.

A warning light for low pressure will glow if you do not have a needle gauge.

Oil engine light blinks on and off when the engine is idling. What can cause this?

This is an indication of low oil pressure. Either the oil level is too low and you need to add oil to the full line on the dip stick or you have a real oil pressure problem and need to have the problem diagnosed by a certified mechnic.
Let me know if you have any other comments or questions. Thanks.

The oil pressure indicator light came on and flashed and a ding sound then it said "STOP" turn off engine. Not sure what is wrong. Oil level is ok.

it can be that your oilpump is packing up or your oil switch is faulty.the best bet is to do a oil presure test to check oilpump then you can work from there

I have a 86 ford f-250 w/ a carbed fuel to carb. was told i had very low oil pressure.would changing oilpump and assending unit fix my propblem? do i have to pull motor to change oilpump? what...

If you're not getting fuel to the carburetor, check/change your fuel filter, check the fuel pump. And for the oil pressure you can change the oil pressure sending unit to see if thats the problem, for the oil pump the oil pan has to come off, it can be changed without pulling the engine, however you still have to lift the engine up.

My 1998 caddilac deville low oil pressure light on

the low oil pressure light can be a faulty oil pressure sensor.But mostly its the pump itself. open the oil pan and check if the net is chocked if not then replace the oil pump and do install the new o ring supplied with the pump. And try changing the oil on time and a good brand is important. (if the problem still exists then u need to replace the crank barring and the cam bushings..Just kidding).

Oil level light comes on inthe afternoon on 1995 cadillac 4.9 when coming to astop

assuming your oil is full and you have changed the oil regularly the light is telling you you have low oil pressure

untreated this will lead to engine failure

if you are lucky, its just an oil pressure switch issue

that being said... check you oil level and/or change your oil and see what happens

Im getting low oil pressure reading on my 95 cadillac deville.. what should I be looking to replace?

always start at the least expensive item. ths would be the oil filter. if its a double wall one,switch to a single. if this doesnt work,then test the oil sending unit. alot of the older caddys do this,and as long as you dont hear lifters tapping,i wouldnt sweat it.
