My oil light just came on. There's no noise coming from the motor so obviously the oil is being pumped and the oil level is good. It's an 82 caprice 6cyl. How do I reset or check what's wrong?


when there is a problem like this you have made the wrong assumption that because there is no noise the pump is working and the pressure is good
what you should be doing is to prove that assumption by having the oil pressure checked by a mechanical gauge and not believe the electrical sender unit which quite often fails
If that proves that there is good oil pressure then you can replace the sender unit
however it the oil pressure is well down ( enough to put the light on), you have a chance to remedy the problem before damage is done to the engine
Most oil pressure sender units come on at around 5-7 psi ( still enough to keep some oil to the moving parts but low enough to tell you of a failing so that you can shut down the engine

What does low oil pressure on 2008 Chevy Impala 3.5 V6 LS


Do you mean what causes low oil pressure? This is a very reliable engine for the most part. If the oil light is on or gauge is reading low, have the oil pressure sensor inspected for failure. These sensors do go bad.

2005 Kia Sedona ex oil light comes on and off with slight ticking noise what could cause this?


  • Low oil level;
  • Oil broken down or contaminated;
  • Clogged oil filter;
  • Bad oil pump;
  • Clogged sump pickup in oil pan.
DO NOT START OR DRIVE THE CAR AGAIN UNTIL YOU HAVE REMEDIED THE PROBLEM. Running the car now will cause PERMANENT DAMAGE to your engine.

Low oil cause low oil pressure


No, the oil level nothing to do with the pressure.
If you have low pressure, check the sender unit, check the pressure with a mechanical gauge, if still low, check the pump

Low presure oil


first thing check is the engine oil level.if oil level okay check oil pressure should be for the 4.2 engine oil pressure should be 12 psi @ 1200 rpm for the 5.3 oil pressure should be 18 psi @ 2000 rpm if oil pressure good problem in the oil pressure sending unit. if oil pressure is low problem faulty oil pump or worn crankshaft bearings if oil pressure low engine will have rod knock.make sure you are using correct oil viscosity if oil too thick you will have low oil pressure oil too thin you will loose oil pressure.

94 Lincoln continental low oil pressure level all the time but manual guage says propper pressure and code 533 comes up with the dcl light. How do I fix problem?


normally you would check the oil pressure sensor which is located under the power steering pump and above the oil filter . how ever 94 lincolns have digital cluster issues. code 533 will trip on because of the oil gauge on the digital cluster or water temp. or low voltage etc. .

Oil pressure gauge fluctuates from high to low. What could be the cause? Remedy?


Hi. This will indicate that there may be some sludge build up in the block, or the oil pressure switch may be damaged. The more serious issue will be a failing oil pump. To isolate the issue, simply, have a oil pressure test ran on this engine. If the test indicates that the true oil pressure is optimal at idle, kindly replace the oil pressure switch. Now, if the test proves that the pressure is indeed lower than factory specifications, this will confirm that the pump is damaged. Have the pump, and oil pump screen replaced, in this case.

NOTE_ I would, also, recommend to have the engine flushed asap.

What does a low oil pressure alarm mean


It means the sensor that detects your oil pressure has seen a situation where the oil pressure is too low and engine damage will result. Could be just a bad sensor, but better have it checked with a mechanical gauge to see exactly what the pressure is.
