Probably in need of an oil change, if it hasn't been done recently.If that isn't the case, the oil sending unit might be faulty, that is usually located around the oil filter housing.

Get yourself a chrysler oil filter. There can be a difference. Start there and you can get thicker oil if necessary. If this does not cure the issue, you will need to have the system tested for adequate pressure from a trusted technician.

Oil pressure problem at idle , ok at light throttle


If your problem is that the oil pressure gauge shows zero or very little oil pressure, or if the warning light flashes or remains on, at idle, but pressure returns at light throttle, you need to get your engine checked. Make sure your engine has sufficient oil - reading on dip stick is in the normal range. At idle, your engine is not getting sufficient lubrication. If you have high mileage on your vehicle, the bearings (crankshaft, rod, cam) may be worn. Or you may have impending oil pump failure. Have the oil pressure checked with a direct reading gauge. If you do not get this checked and repaired as necessary, your engine may fail from the lack of lubrication.

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.


You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

00 lincon navigator 5.4 oil pressure drop's low and light comes on , engine idles rough when pressure drops ,then pressure return s to normal range ,light goes out ,engine runs perfect. Is it my oil


Sounds more like an engine idle issue than a oil pressure issue. If the engine idle drops too low, the oil pump cannot provide sufficient oil pressure. If there is no oil light when the engine is idling normally, then there is no problem there.

Oil light came on although engine has sufficient light


To see if this is anything that you can repair, drain the oil, change the filter, put new oil back in. If the problem is still present, the oil pump may have failed or the pick up tube has come loose inside the oil pan.

I have a 1999 Dodge Stratus and when the car comes to a complete stop after its been warmed up, the oil light comes on. This goes away as soon as I step on the gas. I've checked the oil and there is a...


The oil pump may be going out - the light indicates the pressure is below the proper level and when you step on the gas it spins faster/raises the pressure back up to an acceptable level.

This is something to get checked RIGHT AWAY, as these cars have a history of engine failure....possibly due to low oil pressure.

Check this LINK for more info.

The emissions system may be related, but get the oil pressure issue fixed 1st.
