Without a scan tool unhook the battery and it will clear but I think you have a oil pressure switch problem it should go off by it's self. If you know how to use an ohm meter I can tell you how to test just leave a comment.

Blue smoke and oil light blinking


Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. This will cause your car to loose oil. Your oil light comes on because the oil level in your engine is to low. Just pouring more oil into the engine will NOT fix the problem. The head gaskets must be replaced.

Had oil changed. Now oil light on. They flushed it. Now oil light and engine light on


Does the computer give any codes? Check for the proper oil level. If OK, do an oil pressure test to see if its within specs. If it is then the oil sending unit is probably bad.

check for proper oil level in engine with dipstick if ok.then install mechanical oil pressure gauge on oil pressure sending unit to verify proper oil pressure, if pressure ok. then replace the sending unit/sensor, if pressure not ok. , you may need to remove engine oil pan to check for restriction on oil pick-up tube screen. if ok replace pump. but also check clearance on mains and connecting rods.

I am traveling and my oil was at 10%. It is saturday night and nothing is open but still have 1.5 hours to travel. I stopped and added 2 qts of oil but the gauge now reads 0 and -11 miles- I thought...


I hope you added oil only after checking the oil level. Is the oil percentage not for oil life? You can drive to your destination without any problems as long as you have the proper amount of oil in engine.

Had my oil changed on Saturday and yesterday (Sunday) while driving my check engine light came on?


Check if the oil level with the dip stick. The oil level should be inbetween the low and high level marks. Is there any signs of leaks?

Oil light is staying on when i turn the car on. This is not the service indicator oil change light, but theother one. It's not staying on the whole time the car is on, but when I turn the car on, it's...


This could be a possible oil filter issue(clog), or a failing oil pump as well.The first check point will be to inspect the oil level. pull the dip stick to check for proper level. if the level is sufficient, i would move on to the sending unit. Inspect the oil pressure sending unit for faults or loose connections. if the sending unit is ok, and connected properly, i would advise to take the vehicle to a near by mechanic or service depot for a look at the oil pump and filter.

NOTE-

(((Most common issue will be a faulty oil pressure sending unit)))

No oil preasure


First check the oil level. Do this on a level surface. Make sure it's close to the full mark, or in the operating range on the dipstick.
Next check to see how old the oil is. Is the vehicle well past it's scheduled oil change?
If the above checks out, then I suggest the oil pump is bad. Oil light being on, and noisy hydraulic lifter noise is directly related to low oil pressure. The oil light should come on at 3 lbs of pressure.

Rule of thumb is 10 lbs. of pressure for every 1000 Rpm.

Vehicles have a by-pass valve in the oil system. This comes into play when the filter is clogged up. The oil flow goes past the filter.

This by-pass valve is usually located in the engine block, where the filter attaches. It's up in the block itself. Depends on the vehicle, as to whether this statement hold true. There are many designs for an oil system.

Oil light


it may just be time to change your oil pump.. start your engine and lift your hood.. do you hear a tapping type sound? the impeller inside your pump may be work and thus taking alotl longer then normal to build the proper pressure... if this is true.. get changed ASAP... if it fails it could cause your engine to blow..
