SOURCE: oil light, noisy engine

What type of noise does it make. check if it has "blowby" . Blowby is when there is air coming through to the fuel system. It means that the rings , bearings , and other critical components are bad.The engine needs a complete overhaul or a new engine block. Maybe even the heads. if's it's a ticking, clicking kind of noise it is the valve lifters or rocker arm problem.such as the valves.

SOURCE: 03 gmc envoy with 5.3 140000 miles. Oil pressure

There may be a loose wire or the gauge or sending unit may be going bad. The first thing I would do is to hook up a temporary oil pressure gauge, not using the old one at all. With this watch gauge while driving and see what readings you get. If the readings still jump around you have a pump that is getting weak and failing, If that is the case the pump should be replaced, but with high milage you may consider rebuilding the entire engine. If the readings stay normal start checking for a loose wire at gauge or sender. Then check sender, then gauge and replace as needed.

Where "exactly" is the oil sending unit?


the oil sender unit is screwed into the main oil galley of the engine block ans is in fact either a variable resistor for oil gauges or a pressure switch for oil lights
It normally has one wire from the gauge or light and is grounded out through the body of the unit
if the oil light stays on it indicates either a faulty sender unit or the wire is grounding out before the sender unit
do not confuse this unit with an oil sensor unit which has more wires and communicates with the ECM to report temperature and oil levels and pressures ( depending on the make of vehicle ) that will put on the MIL light or place the engine into limp mode

Oil light stays on , oil level is ok


The light is activated by an an oil pressure switch. With the engine not running there is no pressure so it lights up. When the oil recirculates, the pressure increase and the light goes out. Locate yours and change it, they are fairly inexpensive. If it stays lit after a change it may indicate something more serious.

Oil light comes on


Change your oil pressure sender. The oil pressure sender will usually break before the oil pump will. If you are driving with the oil light on and the motor has not seized the oil pump is probably all right.When your oil light comes on you need to turn your car off immediately so you do not damage your engine crankshaft and camshaft bearings. If you change the oil pressure sender and the oil light stays on then you should replace your oil pump before more serious damage happens to the motor.

Oil light comes on when the engine warms up and only while idiling.


Replace your oil pressure sender (it screws into the head and has a single wire going to it)and the problem should go away. If you replace the oil pressure sender and the light continues to stay on, try another oil pressure sender. If the light is still coming on, replace the oil pump in the oil pan.

A light and buzzer goes off after about five minutes of driving indicating low oil pressure. There is plenty of oil and its clean, what could this mean?


It might be a bad oil pressure sender.Take car to a garage and have them test the engine oil pressure with a mecanical oil pressure gauge.I would not drive to much because IF oil pressure is down you might loose the engine

Why does the oil light come on for just a few seconds after engine has been driven 50 or so miles? If i rev the engine it goes out. There is plenty of oil and changed every 3000 miles.


It's possible you have an oil pressure sender going bad. On several late 90's Jettas I have worked on this was the case. Eventually your oil light will be on continuously and then eventually start blinking all the time.

Make sure the oil is at the right level first and then as long as you are sure you have no other problems test the oil pressure sender unit.

1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo oil pressure low on ilde


I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

The oil light stays on but it has plenty of oil in it.


there is no fuse for that, your problem is low oil pressure or bad sender, if you want the light off disconnect it from the sender unit....GL

I have a 2002 Cherokee 2.4 sport petrol engine Jeep. Recently the oil warning light ( red) on the dash board stays permanantly on. The oil level checks OK and the engine appears to be running OK. Could it...


Oil pressure sending unit should be located somewhere near the oil filter. check that the wire is attached to it and is not grounded. If engine is not making any tapping noises chances are that the sender is bad. If after changing it, the problem persists, put a mechanical gauge on the system (attach where sender is) and read actual oil pressure (should be no lower than 15psi when hot but I prefer better than 20 hot at idle, 40-50 running at 2000rpm)
