Oil light flashes after driving for a while


First check that the oil level is appropriate. If the level is in the proper notch in the dipstick, you might have serious problems. Oil is heavy when cold, and produces acceptable pressure. When the oil warms up, it is less dense, and its ability to produce pressure is reduced. If during normal warm up and driving, the pressure drops below what is acceptable for the engine, the oil pressure light will come on, warning you that major engine damage is impending. Stop driving the car, and take it to a shop for inspection.

2007 chevy uplander ls minivan, low oil pressure warning light and bell comes on and off after 20 minutes of driving


Since you do not state whether you checked the oil and what the condition and level it was, that is important to know for advise to be given.

But unfortunantly, what you describe is some of the indications of a blown head gasket. Did you have white smoke coming out of the exhaust? Is there any indication of water on your dipstick? Is there a oily slim on the top of your antifreeze in the radiator overflow?

My oil light comes on when I stop and goes off when I press the gas and start back driving.


Check and verify that your oil level is full on your engine oil dipstick, if its low add oil until its in the safe area of the dipstick, if your oil is full and your still having this problem, the problem is most likely a faulty oil pressure switch, replace the switch and your oil light problem should be fixed...

My low oil pressure light has been coming on when I stop at a signal or stop sign, but than goes off when I start driving, I just had my oil changed a week ago


It sounds like your engine is low on oil. When you get home, turn your engine off, wait 5 minutes, the pull the dipstick and wipe it clean and re-insert fully, then pull the dipstick out again and look at the end of it; you will see the recommended level etched into the dipstick, if the oil level shows low (and it's a good bet it will), you need to add oil...and never use that shop again.

If the level is normal, the oil pressure sender may be faulty...ask your mechanic to check it and replace it if necessary.

Oil light stays on although level is up.


Either low oil pressure, or a leaking switch. If your switch is not leaking, you most likely have an oil pump problem, or a worn out motor.

You're low on oil - the Audi dipstick isn't the most accurate thing out there. Add a quart and see what happens.

Car wont start


when you press the brake pedal the brake master cylinder vacuum booster takes vacuum away from the engine and that slows the idle speed just enough to trigger the low pressure oil light. Pull the oil pressure sending unit out and hook up an oil pressure test gage, if the pressure is above 15 PSI hot engine idle in drive replace the oil pressure sending unit.

OIl light


Be sure to check your oil level, which I'm sure you have, and be sure your reading the dipstick correctly, by rolling it over and being sure level is same on both sides. My guess is that maybe your sending unit is getting a little sensitive. What will happen when you stop, the oil in the pan shifts forward enough to starve the oil pick-up in the pan enough that the oil pressure will drop just enough for the sending unit to alert you. The other possibility is sludge build up in your engine, is not allowing oil from top of engine to drain back down to pan fast enough, thus your basically running with low oil level all the time. Do you and have you change oil often ?
