My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor


Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

Will the oil sensor switch shut the engine down


Well, yes and no.
If the red oil pressure light comes on, yes the engine could stop running. You could actually lose oil pressure, or the switch could fail.
A "change oil" notice would not cause the engine to stop.

Why does my dodge charge engine shut down and oil light came on.


The oil light comes on when the car shuts off because there is no oil pressure. Make sure it has oil in it. If so take the car and get the codes pulled off the obd computer.

Oil light comes on and is dinging.


The oil light has nothing to do will oil level, but rather oil PRESSURE. If the engine oil is full and there is no rattling or banging noises in the engine, chances are the oil pressure sending unit is bad. If noises accompany the light, then shut down the engine and troubleshooting the engines internal lubrication system.

Auto shut down relay


Oil Light comes on when the Pressure drops below a certain amount. If I was a betting man, I would tell you to test your CRANK SHAFT SENSOR.

2004 lincoln avaitor oil light comes on the engine shuts down


Does the oil light come on BEFORE the engine shuts down? I have to ask because it is NORMAL for the oil light to be on when the engine is not running. I had a customer that said the same thing just last week. After we wasted a bunch of time (which the customer ended-up paying for) checking the oil level, the oil pressure, and verifying correct oil pressure gauge, light, and sending unit operation, it turned out that the crankshaft position sensor was bad and causing the engine to shut down and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the oil light - it was functioning as designed.

If the oil light is coming on before the engine shuts down, the first thing you need to do is check your oil level. If the oil level is OK, you need to check the oil pressure with a gauge to determine if there is an actual engine oil pressure problem or if the oil pressure sending unit, gauge or light is malfunctioning. Also, it is highly advisable to not drive the vehicle AT ALL if the oil pressure light is coming on while driving until the cause of the light coming on has been determined and repairs have been made. Otherwise, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE may result.

What will cause a truck to lose all oil pressure and the engine to shut off while driving down the road?


If wires came off oil pressure switch or if switch went bad, it would shut down truck immediately. Your oil pressure switch performs 2 functions; oil pressure to gauge.light and it's also a safety feature that if you're in an accident or rollover, when oil pressure drops it shuts off power to fuel pump. I'd start there. The reverse is also a possibility, if fuel pump fails, truck shuts down = no oil pressure.
