Oil pressure light goes on and off while driving.

It has no rhryme or reason. It seems to go off and on as it pleases. Is this a real serious problem? Should I be driving it? What could be doing this, is it an easy fix?

Oil light stays on , oil level is ok


The light is activated by an an oil pressure switch. With the engine not running there is no pressure so it lights up. When the oil recirculates, the pressure increase and the light goes out. Locate yours and change it, they are fairly inexpensive. If it stays lit after a change it may indicate something more serious.

Has no oil pressure i drove it over ten mile still runs good but no oil pressure


Just because it runs good is no reason to drive it into the ground. No oil pressure can ruin an engine fast. Hopefuly the reason no oil pressure is the sensor is bad, it's connection is corroded and thus bad. If mine I would take it to a shop and have them actually measure the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. If no oil pressure that way, you know you have a serious problem. If the mechanical measurement is good, then you know that The sensor is bad, it's connection is bad, or the oil pressure light or ? gauge
is bed on the dash panel. Good luck.

Oil pressure light staying on when ticking over,or braking


The fault is indicating low oil pressure, when the engine revs are low the oil pressure drops, first thing to do is change the oil pressure switch (cheapest option), see if that cures the fault. If not have the oil pressure checked, if the fault is the oil pump, then it could cause serious engine damage. Needs to be check out as soon as possible. Good Luck

Oil pressure light is on while I'm driving


No, it is not safe to even have the engine running with the light on-your oil pressure must be low or lost-serious engine damage will result.
Check oil level, and if low add to the full mark. If light goes out, you may be alright. If light is still on with car running, get to a shop immediately for diagnosis.

Oil can icon on the dashboard of chrysler 300 -what to do??


oil light indicates one of two things, Low oil pressure. or Low oil level. Check the level on the dipstick (consult owners manual), if it is low fill it to the "full" line with fresh oil of the correct grade. Also the oil on the disptick should look syrupy golden, not black and dirty - if the oil looks filthy then get it changed, old oil is thinner and results in lower pressure... if it is already at or near the FULL line then you have a more serious problem - low oil pressure is caused by a, faulty oil pump b, worn engine c, wrong grade of oil d, not enough oil e, contaminated oil Also a faulty oil pressure switch could bring the light on... so check this before you have the engine stripped!!!!!
An oil change will cost very little money and could solve the problem, if the light is still on with new oil then chave the oil pressure switch tested... if not the switch than it is a "real" engine problem and needs proper investigation.
IT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA TO DRIVE WITH THE OIL LIGHT ON Unless you know it is an electrical fault and not truly a low oil pressure condition bringing on the light.

CHECK OIL - fill if necesary - light hopefully goes off... STILL ON - have switch tested - switch is hopefully faulty - replace it... STILL ON - have engine checked out - it is losing pressure somewhere

2004 Chev Epica - oil light comes when car comes to a stop


the oil light is coming on due to sensed low engine oil pressure, this is not a level issue unless u are about 3 quarts low, oil pressure indicators don't leave any computer codes, so who ever told u that is wrong, u need to test the oil pressure with a mechanical gage when the oil light is on, until U need to confirm that u don't have a real pressure issue here or you can burn out the engine bearings, if the pressure checks ok then rplace the oil pressure light sending unit in the engine.

My low pressure oil light keeps coming on when i stop and i just got my oil changed. The oil is not low. What could be the problem?


Hi,
That means LOW PRESSURE , not low in volume. Pressure is measured in PSI. The reason that your light comes on when you are at a stop is because your engine goes to idle at a stop and would normally have lower pressure. That doesn't mean you should get a low pressure light though.. I would have it checked by a pro right away as this could be your first warning before a serious problem.

Hopes this Helps,

2001 a4, oil pressure light alarm.


Your mechanic is yanking your chain. (or you mis-understanding.)

Oil pressure light does not have to be "reset." There may be CODES that need to be reset but they would turn on the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. (I think, on your car, this is picture of engine with a check mark.) If the Check Engine Light (CEL) is flashing, it means you have a serious engine problem and should NOT be driving the car without finding the reason for the light. (Around here, many auto parts store will "pull the codes" for free.)

Oil pressure light could mean you are low on oil, have a bad sensor, wire or even a oil pump. The oil pump is inside the engine.

2002 jeep wrangler oil pressure gauge drops


When the gauge is at 0, is there any noise from the engine (tick, knock etc?) I would have someone put a mechanical gauge on there and read true pressure.Your driving pressure seems OK but if the low number is "real" something is wrong!

Oil pressure light on at idle


Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.
