My Evinrude Ficht 200 fuel injected, while running above 200 RPM has no problems but when idling the no oil alarm goes off and there is plenty of oil in the tank.


Its the oil sensor in the oil tank...does the oil line bulb stay pumped tight? If not. you need to do some investigating...or replace the bulb and line..

Low engine oil light on after fresh oil change


I am going to assume you have checked the oil level to make sure the engine has enough oil.
If it really is a warning light for low oil it could be that the shop knocked the wire off the sensor.
If it is the warning light for low oil pressure, it could be the sensor or you could really have low oil pressure and still have plenty of oil.

The oil light in my 1985 Mazda 626 keeps coming on although there is plenty of oil in the engine. I checked and topped the oil up less than a week ago (before a road trip) and today the oil light came on....


The oil light will come on with low oil pressure (it is most likely a faulty / blocked sensor). This could be a simple sensor fault or blocked pick-up or a problem with your pump. I would get it checked out - if the oil pick-up needs to be replaced or cleaned the sump would need to be removed. A quick visual is to open where you top up the oil and see if you can see no oil at the top of your engine if there is very little or none then it is definitely the pick-up and don't drive the car as you will cause wear. If you start your engine you should see oil "sloshing" in the top end - again if there is none then there is no lubrication for the top end.

Light on the dash comes on and off the light is yellow and on right hand side shaped like watering can


It could be the low oil pressure warning light. That light looks like an oil can with one drip of oil on the tip.
If that is the light it is telling you the oil pressure in the engine is low.
You might want to check with a dealer to make sure if you don't have an owners manual.

2000 grand voyager oil warning alarm


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.

Oil warning light goes on, but plenty of oil


An RED OIL LIGHT on your dash, means a LOSS OF OIL PRESSURE. Has nothing to do with HOW MUCH OIL IS ON THE DIPSTICK. Now , does it just flash for a couple of seconds, or is it on steady ? Is there any engine noise ? Hope this helps

98 Grand Caravan Sport oil light and Warning Bell


My friend that alarm is telling you u have low oil pressure, do you want to destroy the new engine?? Find out if the eng really has low oil pressure, it may just be a defective oil press sending unit causing the alarm, have the press checked with a mechanical guage or just replace the sender and see if that cures the issue, the alarm is part of the Body Control Module and can't be disconnected.
