2004 Sebring 2.7 runs good till heats up then will die. like fuel starved. the oil light starts to come on at 1500rpms then runs rough and have to keep engine rpm high.

If you need to keep your rpm above 1500 to keep the oil light from coming on, you need to have that checked RIGHT NOW. When the light comes on, oil pressure is at an absolute minimum. Check the oil level in your crankcase, and top it up if necessary. If you still get the light coming on, you may have a bad oil pump, excessive wear on bearings, or a bad oil pressure switch. Get it checked out or you are liable to blow your engine.

Oil light blinks on

If your oil level is good, that is between the low and high marks, that light blinking is an indicator there is a problem with your oil pressure. The light flashing could be low oil level, a bad oil pressure sensor, your oil pump going out or a clogged line or pick up. Start by checking your oil level, then test the sensor if both are good drain your oil and pull the oil pan off to see if the pick up is clogged, if it is clean it. If everything is good at this point then the problem is the pump itself and you'll need to replace the pump.

My oil light comes on when car idles below 1000 rpms mazda mpv 2003

Your motor oil level is low.
The oil light indicates low oil pressure - at higher RPMs the oil sending unit (oil pump) can create
a little oil pressure, but at lower RPMs it fails to keep up.
If the oil level is good, then the oil sending unit itself is going bad.

My oil light came on in my 1996 Honda accord 5 speed and I checked the level. It was low so I put about a quart in to get it to the right level. I drove for a little while and it flickered back on. Once I...

Is your oil level good, did you check it again??
Your oil pump circulates oil through out the engine while it's running. If it fails, your destroy the engine. This may only take minutes. You should get an external oil pressure gauge hooked up to it to see if the oil pressure is good. Any good shop or garage should be able to do this.

1992 plymouth voyager oil guage issue

All I can think is that there is fault with the type of oil or the oil pump mechanism or oil pressure switch or oil pressure relief valve. When cold the oil is viscous and the pump will have little difficulty in maintaining adequate oil pressure. As the oil gets hot its viscosity is very much reduced and flows with ease and the pump has to work so much more effectively to maintain pressure. The speed of the pump is governed by engine revs so as you 'press on the gas' that pump whirls around making pressure. As soon as the engine revs drop the hot oil slips past the pump vanes and the pressure drops. Remedy: Use a 5/40 or a 10/50 grade oil. These left number indicates viscosity when cold (5 is less viscous than 10 when cold) and the second number indicates viscosity when hot. If you live in one of the northern states and suffer very cold winters try 0/40 grade as this will cause less strain on the starter motor, battery and oil pump when starting in the cold. Try and choose a large figure (45 or 50) for the second number as this indicates a higher viscosity when hot, a good thing for older engines with greater wear and tolerances. I think it is no coincidence that the problem you have seen started immediately after you did an oil change and this should fix it. If this results in no joy check out the pressure relief valve in the engine block: a tired or broken spring will not allow enough pressure build up. The oil sender is probably OK but "if in doubt change it out". All the above are relatively inexpensive but if they fail to solve the problem its time to look at the oil pump assembly. This should be accessibly once the oil sump cover on the bottom of the engine is removed. You'll need a workshop manual, some good tools and an extensive vocabulary of expletives to call on. Enjoy!

Oil light/noise/oil level good

you could have sludge in the crankcase that is blocking the intake screen for the oil pump ... that happens a lot if oil isnt changed regularly .. in some cars it happens even if you do. ...the clatter you hear is the valve lifters collapsing . they need oil pressure to keep them extended properly ... if your oil pump isnt bad it soon will be .. it needs lub also or it will quickly be damaged ...sometimes you can wash out the sludge with kero/oil mix but the safe thing to do is drop the pan .. clean up the sludge and replace the oil pump.while you are there ...once you have the pump working you can first run cheap oil to clean out things ..then drain and install synthetic ...that will do a better job of cleaning out remaining sludge ... of course make sure you have the proper amount of oil to start with .. make sure there is no water in the oil (milky oil) .. make sure oil filter is not clogged ...some oil filters have a one way valve ... that can stick if the car isnt run for a long time .. ....

Check oil light stays lit and engine knocks untill you get up to 45 mph...then light goes off and car sounds fine...i may have ran it dry a half a mile...replaced oil filter and oil pan

Check your oil level, if your oil level is good. Then you may have a bad oil pump and your going to have to tear the engine apart to replace it, but if you think you have done damage to the engine from running it dry of oil. Replace the engine, the cost will be cheaper to replace the engine with a used one from a salvage yard then to replace the bad oil pump in you engine since your bearings may be damaged.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya, in the mean time you might get away with adding Lucas engine oil treatment.

99 saab v6 oil light comes on and flickers at idle goeas away when you hit the gas. perfect oil level.

I would suggest replacing the oil sending unit,they will go bad,and cause this to happen,if this does not help,it can be the oil pump,or the main,and rod bearings wearing out.

Is thier any way to clean the oil pump, it may have trash on it . had my oil changed and light keeps coming on at operating temputure

check the oil level at operating temperature first. The oil pump is inside the engine and cannot be accessed without a large amount of engine disassembly. If the oil level is good, suspect a faulty oil level sensor or disconnected or damaged wiring to the sensor..
