I assume you have checked your oil level and it is ok. If the yellow oil light comes on a few seconds after start up and then goes off it means the oil level sensor is faulty. It is located on the bottom of the engine attached with 3, 10mm nuts. Remove the support pan first 8 bolts 16mm and drain the oil.

My oil light is on on my 2002 toyato camery it has oil and it has atapping sound when idle what causes this


You could have a bad oil pump. Even though the engine has oil, if the pump is bad, oil pressure will be low, hence the oil light. The tapping could be hydraulic lifters not working correctly because of low oil pressure, or the failed oil pump. See a mechanic ASAP. At a bare minimum, he can run a computer code scan to see if there is something detected by the onboard computer.

My ABS AND Brake lights and change oil light is on


Lets start with what is the year make and model ??
If the ABS light is on, you would need to have the computer scanned to get the trouble codes so you would know what component to test.
The brake warning light could be telling you the hydraulic brakes are low on fluid, or the parking brake is not completely off.
You would need to reset the change oil reminder, if it is a red oil light, it could be telling you the oil pressure is low.

Oil light is still on.


The RX 8 engine burns oil pretty bad. Majority of time the oil light coming on is due to the oil level being just a little low. When the engine is cold check the oil level if its full then is another issue but if a little low just add a little oil at a time till full then light should stay off.

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex

You should not drive 10 feet with the oil light on. have you checked the oil level. did someone just change the oil and filter??? find out what the oil pressure is, using a mechanical gauge. it may be too late.

Yellow oil light comes on at start up


The above "Guru has no idea what he is talking about. The yellow oil light means you need a new oil level sensor, if your oil is indeed full. Its located in the oil pan and costs around $100. Oh, and oil changed are around 15,000 miles, not 6000 miles. When the BMW is due for an oil change or inspection, the display says so. The yellow light is low oil. Please avoid giving advice when you don't know what you're talking about.

I have a 1992 toyota camry LE, 4 cyl. and the oil indicator light keeps flickering on and off, what is the problem. I have checked the transmission and the oil levels and they are all okay. Confused as to...


Is it an oil pressure light or an oil change light (check the owners manual) If its an oil change light it may be time to change the oil. If its an oil pressure light you could have a short to ground in the wiring or at the oil pressure sender mounted on the engine. Also are you checking the engine oil with the engine running or off. The transmission is checked with the engine running, engine oil with engine off. If it is low on oil it will intermittently flash. Also when you check the oil wait five to ten minutes after the engine stops to let the oil settle before checking or you may get false readings.

Oil light comes on


Yellow oil can lit means you need to top up the oil. Red oil can means you have lost oil pressure.
