HI. I would advise to have the oil pressure sending unit(sensor), and oil pump inspected immediately for faults. If the oil pressure sending unit is operational , and the wiring is ok, replace the oil pump and screen.


To verify proper oil pressure, i recommend purchasing a manual oil pressure test kit form your local auto parts store. This will make it easier to isolate the actual issue.

NOTE- The most common error will be a faulty sending unit, or sensor(oil pressure)

I have a 2015 volkswagon passat. And the low oil light keeps coming on and I checked the oil yesterday and the light went off and came back on today. But it's not the oil pressure light. ?


Keith, it probably is the oil pressure light.

Low oil level causes low oil pressure. But, as you say .. your oil level is okay. It may be the oil pressure sender which is at fault. There's every possibility that your oil pressure is fine, but the sender is sending a false signal to your dashboard which gives the 'low oil level' warning light.

Get the mechanic at your local dealership to stick his head under the hood. You'll get a diagnosis in seconds. I don't think you have too much to worry about .. just that 'low oil level' warning light is a bit unsettling ..

Why does oil light stay on when oil level is okay?


The oil light is not an indication of oil level; rather it is an indication of oil pressure. If the oil pressure is low enough to light the oil light, you should be hearing some rattling in the engine. Otherwise, it is possible that the oil pressure sending unit is defective. You are lucky if that is the case, because some vehicles are wired that if the oil pressure sensor indicates low pressure, the engine will shut down to protect itself. You should have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge ASAP and take whatever corrective measures are necessary.

My oil light comes on after higher speeds while idling at a traffic light.


It may be your oil pressure transmitter switch at fault. There's many different oil pressure transmitter switches. Here are some generic images:

It could also be that your vehicle is due an oil/filter change.
Is your oil level ok?

It's unlikely to be your oil pump at fault.
  1. Check your oil level
  2. Is the vehicle due an oil/filter change?
The oil pressure transmitter switch simply tells the engine 'low oil pressure'. This usually happens at idling speed due to a faulty transmitter switch, low oil level or there's a need for an oil change as the old oil is no longer up to the job. Oil pressure switches are easily changed.

The important thing is that you aren't getting a warning light when driving at speed. If your oil level is okay and it isn't due an oil/filter change - it probably is the oil pressure switch at fault.

For your own peace of mind try adding an oil additive.

Oil light keeps flashing but the oil is good


Oil light is for pressure, not level. A flashing oil light means your oil pressure is low. If you have a normal oil level, and the car is not making any grinding or knocking noises from inside the engine, you may have a bad oil pressure sensor.

I have a 1992 toyota camry LE, 4 cyl. and the oil indicator light keeps flickering on and off, what is the problem. I have checked the transmission and the oil levels and they are all okay. Confused as to...


Is it an oil pressure light or an oil change light (check the owners manual) If its an oil change light it may be time to change the oil. If its an oil pressure light you could have a short to ground in the wiring or at the oil pressure sender mounted on the engine. Also are you checking the engine oil with the engine running or off. The transmission is checked with the engine running, engine oil with engine off. If it is low on oil it will intermittently flash. Also when you check the oil wait five to ten minutes after the engine stops to let the oil settle before checking or you may get false readings.
