The oil light goes on and off even with a full engine of oil. Could this problem be from the oil pump or a loose belt?

    Most vehicles that experience this have a faulty oil pressure sending unit/switch or connection at the oil sending unit. This solution is based solely on how the engine is running. If the engine seems to run smoothly then this is the route to go with this issue. If it is not running well and making all sorts of clunking and clanging noises then it requires a different solution.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor

Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

Where is the oil pump on a 1997 mercury sable 3.0 engine think its weak as I hear valves chatter and changed oil filter it was only half full of oil is this normal

Half full is not normal. You may have leak or burn. Clatter is usually the hydralic valve lifters. Does it quiet down after it's been running a while? What is the oil pressure?

Oil pump of mitsubishi montero 1998 is not functioning

If you have a timing belt on the engine it is a good bet that there is a belt that also drives the oil pump. Have you done anything to the motor like a rebuild. Missing/loose oil pick up pipe. Pump not primed before fitting. The oil goes first to the filter for cleaning before going to the rest of the engine so your problem will be in the pump drive or pick up area. Have you put oil in the sump.?

Oil light comes on, engine oil full

Yes. But it could also be a bad oil sending unit. Do not drive the car until you figure it out. If the oil pump is bad you risk destroying your engine.

Hi, i have a 1988 toyota conquest. the oil light continously stays on. But when i rerve it up the light goes on. Oil is full. Im thinking its the oil pump? i dont think its the oil light sensor but im not...

If oil level is OK, then it is possible that the warning light pressure switch which is screwed into the engine oil pressure system is faulty and setting off light and needs replacing. There could even be oil leaking out of the switch. The switch is usually located near the oil filter and will have a wire connected to it.
If after replacing switch and light still comes on, check to make sure wire is not making contact with the engine because of cracked insulation or it could also mean badly worn engine bearings. It is unlikely to be the oil pump as these hardly ever fail.

Oil light on when oil is full

a loose connection WILL NOT cause flickering oil light unless your your oil is empty at the same time a connector is loose. This flickering is most likely caused by clogged oil ports or failing oil pump. When this happens there is insufficient oil running through the engine, causing the sensor to activate the light intermittedly. Have this checked immediately to prevent extensive engine damage. Hopefully this helps!!

2004 jeep liberty. oil light come on some times. today on tomorrow off sort of thing. checked oil and full. 2000km from last oil change. what are other reasons for oil light to come on?

other reasons:

perhaps it has too much oil in it? is it right on the fullmark, or above?

solution - drain some out by carefully undoing the sump bolt and holding it so only a dribble comes out, its usually one litre between E and F on your dipstick.

check your motor belts(fan, alternator, aircon) have any fallen off or are loose, some cars have vacuum pumps powered by the belts that maintain oil compression in the engine.

poor compression in your cylinders perhaps, symptoms of a worn motor
get a engine compression test done.

your oil pump may be getting wornout, this is a pump within the engine that pumps the oil from the bottom back upto the top so your motor is properly lubricated, no real way of testing this, try replacing this as a last resort, its usually cheaper to put a 2nd hand replacement motor in.

oil pump is in the oil pan,sounds like your problem is in the crank bearings if one crank bearing goes you will loose oil pressure causing oil light to come on.
