My oil light on a 1999 nissan sentra is coming on. I changed the oil and oil filter about a week ago before light came on. What could be the issue?

Have you observed any leaks or loss of oil in your engine?

Though this may not be the case, my daily driver suddenly started flashing the oil light after a couple days. I saw some oil spots in the garage a few days before finding out that I was in for a very costly repair...

The rear oil seal, in between the crankshaft and the flywheel was dislodged and eventually needed replacing.

Hope this is not the case for you, and it is a simple fix for you by checking if the oil filter is properly seated and there are no leaks. Pull out your oil dipstick and ensure that there is enough oil in the crank case to flow around the engine during operation.

Many times the oil light coming on is an indicator of inadequate oil pressure, and should never be dismissed as a simple error in the system, regardless of having a proper lube job done recently.

Hope this helps.

My Nissan Sentra is leaking motor oil. It comes out of the valves gasket. What should I do? Is it costly?. Guarantee is expired. sixmorans

Hi, You had fill too much oil on your sentra. Nissan Sentra use, less oil compare to other brands car with same CC . Never fill the oil that reach max mark of oil dip stick. Please replace your valve cover gasket ( my sentra has P/N: 13270-4m700, your sentra may has different P/N). You can do it yourself. It is only need about 20 minutes to complete.

It could be a broken Oil Pump, Is there oil in the engine or when you hit the pothole you could have hit the Exhaust Pipe and broke the pipe causing a Exhaust Leak.

1999 Nissan Sentra oil in air filter

First off, nothing "blows" into the air filter. It would be getting sucked in from somewhere in your engine compartment. My guess would be leaking valve cover. Check around and feel for wet oil. That will also be a leak. Have you been going through more oil than usual? Check that also. Hope that helped.
