    Check your engine's oil level and post back. If the level is good you may have a problem with the oil pressure. Also, how many miles on the latest oil change?

If it has plenty of oil in it, the you need to go to a heavier grade of oil ---- say 15w-40 or 20w--50 that , should fix that , what is happening is that the oil is getting too thin when hot ,the grade you are useing is probanly for freezing cold weather .

Oil light flashes after driving for a while


First check that the oil level is appropriate. If the level is in the proper notch in the dipstick, you might have serious problems. Oil is heavy when cold, and produces acceptable pressure. When the oil warms up, it is less dense, and its ability to produce pressure is reduced. If during normal warm up and driving, the pressure drops below what is acceptable for the engine, the oil pressure light will come on, warning you that major engine damage is impending. Stop driving the car, and take it to a shop for inspection.

Oil warning light flashing mean?


Normally, if you get a oil warning light signal (flashing) could be a few things related to it. Number one, you are low on oil. Check your oil level and make sure it is at full level. Number two, is possibly oil filter is dirty, ( time for service,oil change) or problem with oil pump or oil pump pressure. BUT I would first start with checking oil level and then maybe a oil change.

My oil light is flashing & chiming when I drive. But my oil isn't low


Sounds like the low oil sensor is bad or corroded. Check and clean. If that doesn't fix, replace it.

The Warning Light Comes on "Stop Engine Low Oil Pressure" what does this mean


car needs oil pressure or bearings will wear out in short time. Do not drive or start engine with this light on. Might only be pressure sending unit. Can replace sending unit and start briefly to see if problem resolves. If light still stays on, shut off engine and have oil pump replaced.

Oil pressure warning light flashe's on then goe's of


If oil & filter done/checked on a regular basis,and no new sounds or noises from engine, I would certainly lean toward new oil pressure switch. Probably does it more often when stopping maybe? If your very nervous about it, have a mechanic hook up his own good oil pressure gauge to engine in order to verify pressure is where it should be.
