Do you do regular oil change? It sounds like the oil pick up tube or pump screen may be plugged or the oil pump may be getting weak. Drain and take the oil pan off check the tube and screen that hangs into the oil pan, clean it if it's dirty. If you have high mileage replace the oil pump better safe than sorry.

Low oil pressure switch is designed to cut off engine to prevent damage. If you are sure oil pressure is good when light starts blinking, replace pressure switch. Idle position sender IDK.

I have a 1976 buick regal 350 engine and the oil light comes on when the engine gets hot and it is at an idle. when you give it gas the light goes out. could this be the oil sending unit and if so where is...


it might be the sending unit, is it a buick 350 or a chevy. 350? if a buick engine the sinding unit should be on the side of the timing cover if a chevy 350 next to the dist.

remove the oil sinding unit and install a manuel gauge and see just what the oil pressure is if below 10 psi at hot idle replace the bearings and oil pump in the engine. if this is a chevy 350 make sure you replace the camshaft bearings this is were we use to see the gratest oil pressure loss.

After 20-30 min. driving oil light comes on when stopped. oil light goes back off when moving again.


There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).

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.

97 wrangler oil pressure drops when engine is at idle


check the engine oil level... you could possibly need to replace the oil pump soon... if you do not live in a cold climate i would consider using 30 or 50 weight oil. do NOT use that in a cold climate as the oil is like molasses when it gets cold.
that's only temporary. one other thing to consider is a clogged oil filter... when was the last time it was changed ?
