Before making any repairs I suggest you put an external mechanical oil pressure gauge in place of the sending unit and determine what your actual oil pressure is. That will tell you which way to go using real numbers. If this condition appeared suddenly it may not be a large problem, especially as you did not note any knocking etc that goes along with internal wear.

The idle may be to low or the motor is just old and a new set of rod bearings is need with an oilpump to bring the pressure back up.

Low oil pressure warning comes on


Make sure oil level is full, possible faulty oil pressure sender. replace sender and recheck, if warning still comes up, possible internal engine issue.

My son just bought a 1986 cadillac deville and the "stop engine oil" light comes on whenever he stops the car. Any ideas, a bad sensor, I hopr?


Well, if you say that when he stops the car, but the engine still running (idling) - that "stop engine oil" light comes on, it could mean that the oil pump can no longer maintain the minimum oil pressure to the critical areas of the motor at an idle.
If the light goes out with a higher idle (driving the car) that is a good indication of a worn out motor.
be sure the oil is at the full mark, not below or above the full mark. Make sure the oil and filter are new. The sender units for the oil lights rarely go out - but it is possible.

Hi i recently bought a 95 deville sedan, and when i come to a stop the low oil pressure inication light comes on. if i turn the car off and back on, i have no problem. what are the possible causes of this...


A bad oil pump would be your worst case, but, My oil pressure gauge drops right down to nothing at idle and goes right back up when I take off. It's like a tachometer. Has been like that for 10 years. Might just be a sensitive sending unit. My old truck had a gauge that would measure 65 lbs pressure with one qt of oil in it! So, the pressure in not necessarily the level. I don't know what to say about the light. Hope this helps.

later models; press info till the oil message shows up then, press and hold info reset.
