Oil light in 1999 Toyota camry comes on when idling.

Oil level is fine. Idle speed is 700 rpm. When I rev up the engine or am driving the light goes out. The car seems to run fine. It has 160, 000 miles on the engine. The light goes out at 800-1000 rpm.

Bad to worn out oil pump or excessive oil passage clearances that allowing more oil to pass thru them at a lower pressure due to the bigger opening. It can be a sign of an emminant engine failure due to oil starvation.

My oil light comes on at idle speed in my SantaFe 2006 CRDi engine


This is not necessarily a problem. If the oil is at correct level and viscosity grade, and the light always goes out with a small (not large) rise in revs, then it could possibly be OK. An engine does not need much oil pressure at idle, say 600-800 RPM.

It could also be a faulty sender unit on the engine, a worn oil pump, or a faulty oil pressure relief valve on the oil pump or in the filter.

To be sure, get an oil pressure gauge fitted to the sender outlet hole, and see what the reading is at various revs. If there is indeed a pressure problem by the gauge, try first a new oil filter. If not it is probably a faulty sender unit.

Oil lamp lights at 750rpms


750 rpm?

your revs are too low.

The engine speed drives the oil pump via the timing belt.

too low revs = poor pump speed = low pressure.

I'll bet when you rev the idle speed faster, the warning goes off?

My 1999 pontiac grand am will idle low, but does not cut off.


Sounds like your oil pressure sensor may be faulty. Or your oil level is very low. Your engine should idle as low as 650 rpm without your light coming on.

1) Make sure that the following parts are in good order.
I Battery
I Ignition system
I Engine oil and coolant levels
I Fuses
I ECM harness connector
I Vacuum hoses
I Air intake system
(Oil filler cap, oil level gauge, etc.)
I Fuel pressure
I Engine compression
I EGR valve operation (If so equipped)
I Throttle valve
I Evaporative emission system
2) On air conditioner equipped models, checks should be carried out while the air conditioner is OFF.
3) On automatic transmission equipped models, when checking idle rpm, ignition timing and mixture ratio,
checks should be carried out while shift lever is in “N” position.
4) When measuring “CO” percentage, insert probe more than 40 cm (15.7 in) into tail pipe.
5) Turn off headlamps, heater blower, rear defogger.
6) Keep front wheels pointed straight ahead.
7) Make the check after the cooling fan has stopped.

1999 Toyota Camry Idle Problems on Hot days


Clean the IAC. Disconnect throttle body air hose and you will see a hole on the bottom of the throttle body just before the butterfly valve. Spray throttle body cleaner down the IAC hole and then let it soak about 1/2 hour. Reconnect hose and run engine about a minute and then repeat this process 2 or more times. Toyota engines from 1997-2005 commonly have the IAC get cruded up with carbon as early as 35,000 miles. This is a sImple and cheap repair that many repair shops don't want you to know.
