Question about 2000 Daewoo Leganza
The oil light is on. it only comes on when you you are idling or first start the car. as you go down the road, it goes off. what could be the problem?
As long as you have a load on the engine, there is an oil pressure so it turn the light off. At idle and first start there is not enough oil pressure to turn off the switch. To check if you lose oil pressure, look around the oil filter, if the seal is not tight, it may take some time for oil pressure to build up, that why you have this problem.
If you don't find any oil leak, try to clean the dirt surrounding the oil pressure switch contact, if it is not improve then have oil pressure switch replaced.
Before a replacement, make sure you don't lose coolant and check oil level to see if you have too high of the oil level which is an idication of a head gasket problem. Hope this can help.
