I would start with changing the oil and filter and maybe even have it flushed out. That may take care of your prob

Why does my low oil pressure light comes on when making left and right turns


Oil level is probably low. When you turn, your oil splashes to the right or left and your pump is not able to pick up the proper amount of oil to pump. If the level is proper, you might have the wrong grade of oil. Check your owners manual for proper weight for the driving sonditions you are in.

Where do i find the oil pressure switch on the toyota tarago is there one or to I replaced the one on the side of the motor near the starter motor but the red oil light is still coming on


First, do not keep driving if the oil warning light is on or your oil pressure gauge has dropped. Stop the engine, let it sit for a few minutes, then check the oil level.
If the dipstick shows a full oil level, then low oil obviously isn't your problem. The oil pressure may be low because of a worn or broken oil pump, a plugged oil pickup screen in the engine's crankcase, possibly a plugged oil filter or excessive bearing wear. Or, the oil pressure may be fine but the oil pressure sending unit has failed. Further diagnosis will be required to determine what's wrong.
Perform electrical tests on oil pressure switch http://www.clarks-garage.com/shop-manual/elect-19.htm
Replace pressure switch as the cheapest means of repair to see if the lights go out .
The pressure switch will be located on the engine block.

check the oil level in your engine wow that's a tough one. Check engine oil level top up with oil in low. It does sound like an electrical issue. I would check ground to the engine too. start with that ieither of those do not remedy the problem. take it to a garage.

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.

it sounds like your oil pressure sending unit may be plugged by whatever took your pressure down to 5-8 psi the first time. this is extremely low pressure as i am sure you know but at 30 psi your light should go off i would replace the sending unit if your oil pressure is holding 30

Oil Light comes on VW passat


Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

Oil pressure sensors are one of the least reliable devices in our cars; to be sure you have no problem with your oil pump you should have the oil pressure checked by a shop but having replaced a half-dozen of these over the years, I'd probably just buy one and DIY.
They could cost anywhere from ~$10 to $40 US.
If you do replace it, I highly recommend using either layers of Teflon plumbing tape or a sealant when installing the new one to avoid having it drool sometime in the future.
