Low oil pressure


The light should come on when oil pressure drops below 5psi (us).
The oil pressure could actually be low, or the switch could be faulty.

Make sure there is enough oil in it! This is the main reason the oil light comes on flashing and beeping. Possibly a faulty oil sensor if the oil level id fine.

My 97 chevy lumina had a lifter ticking I changed oil now sounds like all of them are tapping like crazy. it has oil light so I dont know how much oil pressure it has light goes off when started.


did you use an engine flushing agent ? if not try one, also you should be using a 10/40 semi synthetic oil for the age of car,then after refilling take revs upto 3000 for about 30 secs,(when hot)if that dont cure it then start looking at oil pump(more costly last)

Oil light comes on and beeps


Changing oil can't hurt. When was the last time you had it changes?How many miles on that engine?Changing approximately ever 3,000 miles is common practice. The engine oil light and the automatic transmission are two seperate problems.     Engine oil light come on because the sensor reads a low oil preasure.If the engine is not worn then the light can be caused by the sensor getting cloged up (from dirty oil ) and not reading the preasure correctly.
