Low oil pressure light when accelerating hard

This may sound too simple, but is your oil level sufficient? Some cars have the oil pump at the front, if the oil level is low and you accelerate, the oil is pushed to the back of the oil pan and the oil pump draws air and cavitates, causing momentary low pressure. If that's not the case, I suggest you hook up a direct reading oil pressure gauge, because it sounds like you have an actual oil pressure issue.

My 2006 impala had low oil level so i added a little too much. Now low oil pressure shut off engine light comes on. what is causing this? is it the oil pump?

Not Likely. You need to have an oil pressure test performed. If the pressure is low than running the engine low on oil has caused excessive main and rod bearing clearances. having the engine rebuilt is expensive. Either install a known good, used engine or get a re-manufactured engine w/ a good warranty. The best reman is made by Jasper Engines and Transmissions and come w/ a 3 year 100,000 mile warranty.

I have a 2006 impala. On the highway the dinging wont go off on the oil light. It says oil pressure low turn off engine but I changed oil today. The dinging just wont stop!! What's wrong??

Hi stevie, your Impala probably has a defective sensor, often called a "switch" that senses the oil pressure. The oil light and chime is a result from a false signal from the bad sensor.
But one cannot take a chance. If the sensor is acting properly, and pressure is low, it could really damage your engine to have low oil pressure and oil not pumping properly. Have it checked now. A new sensor should cost about 60 dollars & takes only a few minutes to install.

Good luck. i hope this helps. Please rate me a FixYa.

My impala keeps chiming and saying "OIL PRESSURE LOW, STOP ENGINE", i had an oil change done, and it still hasn't stopped.

A common cause to your problem is a faulty oil pressure switch. This monitors the oil pressure and when defective, can falsely trigger the low oil pressure light. If the switch is good, the oil pump may be bad. Listen carefully for "ticking" under the hood. This would be a sign of insufficient lubrication to the lifters/rocker arms.

Like 3 days after i got my oil changed in my 2006 chevy impala the low oil pressure shut off engine light comes on

This is an idication of a severe oil leak. Check the oil level in your engine to see if there is any in it. Add to the full mark and return to the oil change shop and ask them to see where the leak is. Do not operate without oil. Severe engine damage will occur. Hope this helps Moe
