Those oil lights come on when the oil pressure drops below a certain PSI. Usually it's about 5-7 PSI. If your oil pressure is actually dropping that far it's a sign that your engine is wearing out. The oil pressure is caused by the oil pump trying to force oil past the bearings in your engine. When the bearing get worn, it take less pressure to force the oil though the bearings, thus the pressure drops. But, the good news is, it might just be a bad sending unit for the oil light. I guess I would have a mechanic put a mechanical gauge on the engine for test purposes and see what the actual pressure is. Hopefully, it's just the sending unit, good luck.

I have a 95' eclipse gst... The car is not running right at idle. I just replaced the water pump and reset the timing, i got it as close as possible.. I put it on a scanner and it said there were no...


To me it sounds as though the timing is off a tooth or two, Thats all it takes to cause a driveablity and idle problem. As frustrating as it may be I would recheck the timing marks.

Good luck, I hope this helps you.
