You could have a bad oil pump. Even though the engine has oil, if the pump is bad, oil pressure will be low, hence the oil light. The tapping could be hydraulic lifters not working correctly because of low oil pressure, or the failed oil pump. See a mechanic ASAP. At a bare minimum, he can run a computer code scan to see if there is something detected by the onboard computer.

SOURCE: Check Engine Oil Level Light Coming on when driving on interstate

Hi, this will happen when the oil sending unit(module) is malfunctioning. This a sensor that reads the information and sends the alerts which initiates the lights actions. Replacing this sending unit(module) will fix this issue. There is a more sever issue that may not be the case but, there is a chance. The oil pump itself may be malfunctioning. this could also trigger this alert as well. I suspect the sending unit may be malfunctioning.


please rate and have a great day...

SOURCE: Oil Pressure light stays on. Oil reservoir is

It occurred to me that you may find it by unplugging wires on the few items under the hood which may appear they could be the oil pressure sending unit.

The light should go out when the wire is unplugged, and if it does it is bad. That's your continuity test.

If you unplug the oil pressure sending unit and the light does not go out, the cause of the oil light staying on is something other than the oil pressure sending unit.

RE pete cass posting: I believe that if the sensor is diconnnected, the oil pressure light will not light (at least because of the oil pressure sensor switch being disconnected) -- the symptom here is the light won't go off. The switch is closed with oil pressure below 10-15 PSI and open above that oil pressure -- this is a normally closed switch.

If replacing the oil pressure sensor doesn't fix it, then you need an oil pump.

My oil light is on on my 2002 toyato camery it has oil and it has atapping sound when idle what causes this


It has low oil pressure. The tapping sound is the sound of the hydraulic valve lifters not getting enough oil.

Replace the oil and the oil filter. Make sure to put in at least 4 quarts of oil (check manual to see how much is required). I suggest using oil designed for high mileage cars.

If it still does this you probably need to replace the oil pump which is a job for a mechanic.

2002 altima idling too high check engine light on


The first and easiest thing you should do or have someone do, is check under the hood for a vacuum leak, possibly coming from a cracked or broken hose. Check and inspect all rubber hoses, including the large ribbed hose running to the throttle body (Engine air intake from the air filter box). You can hear a leak if it is loud enough and will sound like a hiss. Your engine is idling high because of a vacuum leak.

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.
