Check the oil level is not low, and the oil in use is of suitable grade & quality.
If it only comes on at idle, you may have a faulty oil pressure alarm sensor switch.
Either replace it, or preferably, get the engine oil pressure tested using an independant oil pressure gauge.
If it is verified that the oil pressure is indeed low, you may have to look further for other engine problems, such as worn camshaft/crankshaft bearings.

You either are running low on oil, have a failing oil pump, or a bad oil sensor. The lamp will continue to come on until the problem is fixed.

Oil light comes on and is dinging.


The oil light has nothing to do will oil level, but rather oil PRESSURE. If the engine oil is full and there is no rattling or banging noises in the engine, chances are the oil pressure sending unit is bad. If noises accompany the light, then shut down the engine and troubleshooting the engines internal lubrication system.

Oil light keeps flashing, car full of oil


Low oil pressure could be the reason the oil light in your car will come on. Test your oil pressure. Without enough pressure, the oil will not reach necessary areas of the engine. The oil pressure sensor itself may sometimes become clogged with sludge from the engine, especially if the engine has not been properly maintained. A clogged oil sensor can give a false reading of low oil pressure, which will illuminate your oil light. So, check the oil pressure sensor light.

I have a 97 supercharged the oil light keep comin stay on while Im driven the oil is full


The oil light is for low oil pressure, not low oil.
You need to have someone check the actual oil pressure with a mechanical gauge or change the oil pressure switch and see it the light still comes on.

Hello people, I recently did a full service on my golf3 (changed engine oil and what-not) but my oil light keeps coming on!Solution any1


Yes, if the engine oil and filter has been changed, but the oil light keeps coming on, then there may be pressure issues within the engine for the oil pressure, that is.

Connect a gauge where the oil pressure sending unit usually goes after unscrewing the sending unit, and measure the pressure to see if it within specifications. If below, then the engine's oil pump must be rebuilt or replaced in order to have enough pressure to lubricate the inside of the engine.

Please do this before the engine gets symptoms of oil starvation.

Good luck on this repair.

The oil light in my 2003 Neon keeps coming on.


it is most definitely the oil pressure sender!

standing in front of your car, look behind your engine from above, below the head and screwed into the block on the right side is the sensor.

The oil light keeps coming on with a bell


If your oil gauge if you have one reads good pressure, more then likely you have a bad sensor, if you just have an oil light, take it to a repair shop where they can do an oil pressure test. Have it check, low oil pressure can cause major engine damage.

My low pressure oil light keeps coming on when i stop and i just got my oil changed. The oil is not low. What could be the problem?


Hi,
That means LOW PRESSURE , not low in volume. Pressure is measured in PSI. The reason that your light comes on when you are at a stop is because your engine goes to idle at a stop and would normally have lower pressure. That doesn't mean you should get a low pressure light though.. I would have it checked by a pro right away as this could be your first warning before a serious problem.

Hopes this Helps,

Low oil pressure light keeps coming on


check if there is too much oil. over filling the engine with oil causes the oil to foam which leads to loss of oil pressure. it could also be the oil pressure sensor

Oil light keeps coming on and beeps


This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.
