Either the engine oil pump is worn, or the engine oil filter is clogged.
This happened on my 1997 Cadillac Deville. After changing the oil and filter, and putting the proper viscosity oil in, the problem immediately ceased.

Good luck on this one.

I have a 1990 205CJ, it has what I am hoping is only a loose wire or dirty terminal. 3 of the 5 dash ignition lights (temp, stop, oil) flicker intermittently when driving. Car does not overheat, all fluids...


remove the dash and clean the connections for the dash happens from time to time, some times even just pushing on the dash resorts it out as you are driving. the connections just need cleaning and resting.

You need to have this pressure tested to find a leak or diagnose a bad water pump or thermostat. Could also be a bad sensor or wiring harness.

High oil pressure


You can't go by the gage on the dash, you need to hook up a manifold gage to get an accurate reading. Did you check the oil filter bypass valve AKA oil relief valve?

My oil light is on, I changed the oil, replaced the oil pump AND the sending unit. At idle the light will come on and when the engine is revved the light goes off. Also a few days ago the oil light flashed...


a very important step before anything else is to get a gauge and measure the oil pressure because if there is pressure leak somewhere that did not achieve the pressure rise

Oil Indicator Flashes


The light doesn't indicate oil level, it indicates oil pressure. It could be a faulty sending unit, a plugged oil pickup (way down inside the oil pan), or the engine could just be worn. Also, if it's idling too slow it could be coming on. Time to go see your favorite technician. Good luck.
