Oil pump is probably shot , don't drive it what ever you do. This can be a bit of a problem to change I have never done one on that make but they are usually located in the oil pan under the vehicle.

Why does my oil light come on?


It's possible that when the engine is at idle RPM it may not produce enough pressure causing the oil pressure sender to activate the light. Does it do this when you just sit and idle the motor? You may also have a oil sender that may need to be replaced.

Excessive exhaust smoke


You may have a broken ring or scored cylinder wall and piston. Have a cylinder leak down test performed to confirm this. Other causes can be a plugged crankcase ventilation system causing pressure to build in the engine, if that is the case the air cleaner box should have oil in it. The grey color of the smoke means you are burning a lot of oil.

Oil light keeps coming on but had oil changed couple weeks ago


The red oil warning light is for low oil pressure. Not necessarily low oil level in the engine.

The oil light comes on when the van is in idle, but not all the time mostly after driving awhile. All the fluid levels are ok. The oil & filter was just changed a couple months ago.


Replace the oil pressure sender and the problem should be solved . Fortunately , the senders tend to go out more frequently than the oil pump. If you change oil pressure sender and the light keeps coming on , you may have to consider replacing the oil pump in the motor or risk getting stranded some where with a blown motor.

Oil pressure guage intermitently falls to zero when idling. The dashboard "check gauge" light comes on. Has happened on three different occasions out of about 20 driving excursions. When it isn't happening...


My jeep also has started doing this. I replaced the oil pressure sensor. Sensor on the 4.7 is above the oil filter, follow the wires, typicaly is a 1 1/16 socket.
