Maybe not, The Oil screen could be clogged up. You will have to drop the oil pan and it should be at the bottom of the engine. Does it seem to get better or worse when cold or hot??

The first thing to do, is take it back to your mechanic
and have them hook up a mechanical oil pressure
gauge. To find out the actual oil pressure,before any
serious damage results. As for the oil pressure sending unit, it's not that strange to get a bad one out
of the box. But lets eliminate the obvious first and have the gauge check done. Hope this helps.
Good luck.

My 2006 Monte Carlo's low oil pressure turn engine off indicator comes on, on the dash. All apears normal. Happens only once and a while


mine's been doing this too. I pulled into a dealer when this happened and he was nice enough to check things out under hood a bit. Confirmed what I noticed...which was that there was no leaking oil and neither of us noticed any noises or unusual engine behavior. So he said he felt it is oil pressure sensor. Gonna check into one today.

Oil pressure light on - plenty of oil i n engine


it sounds like the bad oil pump to me, before you replace the oil pump one more thing you need to check. If your car is a automatic transmission


1. check the oil pressure switch
2. change the transmission fluid and fiter,
hope this can help.

I have a 1998 plymouth voyager with a 3.3 engine in it and the oil light stays on, but their is plenty of oil in it. Could it be the oil pressure sending unit and where is it located? Thank you Jeff...


It very well could be and probably is. The only exception is if you are leaking oil.
The Oi Pressure Sending Unit (Sensor) should be located on the front lower part of the engine, adjacent (to the left of ) the Oil Filter and should have 1-wire going into it.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Could be either one. If you don't want to take it to a mechanic (which you should do), replace the sensor. If no change, then it's the pump. But FWIW, it sounds like the pump.

My wife says the oil light just came on her 2001 beetle (is this a low level sensor?)


oil pressure sensor = when oil light comes on = sensor is not recieving a high enough oil pressure. 1) Did you check the oil level in the engine? 2) if the oil level is fine, and it just had an oil change, the filter (filament style) might have been installed upside down. also does the light come on and beep only during first couyple seconds of being started or while driving down the road?

Dodge caravan '98, oil light on, plenty of oil


If the engine is not making any knocking type noises, check the oil pressure sending unit. If it is leaking oil then it needs to be replaced along with removing the rubber plug from the connector and cleaning the terminals. If the oil light still comes on then the oil pressure is definately low and could cause engine failure.

OIL SENSOR LIGHT ON 2001 Audi 2.8liter


It could simply be maybe the person changing your oil never reset the light? or you have a oil pressure sensor leaking or not working.
most of the time its someone never reset the oil change light. even before it goes on it goes by mileage, so maybe it didnt go off yet cause you cnahged it a tad early.so noone even tried to reset it.

I guess you could have an oil pressure problem, but thats going the extreme route.. but if nothing else shows that could be a problem.
