Your oil pump may be starting to fail on you. once it's gone you will have no oil pressure at all and you run the risk of overheating the engine. monitor your guages closely.

My 2007 Buick 3.9 liter oil light comes on and off. ..stays on for a while then goes back out. Checked the oil level all good. I did recently change the oil to GTX 5w30 extended milage oil. Any idea


The oil light comes on when the oil pressure sensor detects low oil pressure. The amount of oil has little to with it, although very low oil levels can cause loss of oil pressure. The best thing to do is to have the engine's oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge to ensure that the oil pressure is sufficient at all operating speed and temperatures. If the oil light is still flashing on and off and there is no indication of low oil pressure by the gauge, then replacement of the oil pressure sensor is recommended.

Low oil pressure warning keep coming up but my oil pressure is fine


Could be a few things, first Get it checked with a mechanical gauge to test low motor oil, clogged oil filter, bad oil pump, clogged oil sump (pick up tube) or bad oil sending unit. Then replace sending unit sensor.

My oil gauge pressure keep miving from hi to low


The symptoms you mentioned could indicate the possibility of a faulty fuel pump. Or, it could actually be a stopped up oil filter. Check the oil filter first before investing in an oil pump. Also, I think, that the oil pump has to be timed with the engine timing on your particular car, so you may want to check into the timing belt also. Just mention the timing chain to your mechanic as that possibility slipped my mind and may be a solution to your problem.

White smoke from tailpipe and low oil pressure


How's the anti-freeze doing? Usually when you see white smoke coming out the tailpipe it's because you are getting anti-freeze in the exhaust somehow. Try to sniff it a little does smell like anti-freeze, or oil? I don't know why the oil pressure would be low unless you are getting anti-freeze in the oil. Does the oil look milky, knda like chocolate milk? The low oil pressure could also be a faulty gauge, you may want to have a mechanic put a mechanical gauge on the car for test purposes.

Oil pressure loss


the 1st thing u do is have the oil pressure tested with a test mechanical gauge by a shop, most times it is just the oil pressure sending unit is defective, but never assume that is the problem, low oil pressure will distroy a $5000.00 engine very quickly, u can just try a new sending unit, but highly recommend a pressure test with a mechanical gauge before you run the engine anymore.

Loss of oil pressure


Loss of oil pressure can be any of the following: defective oil gauge, defective oil gauge sending unit, defective oil pump, worn rod and main bearings, plugged oil pickup screen, insufficient oil in engine hole in oil pickup tube, etc. Many issues can cause low oil pressure. Take it to a mechanic for proper diagnosis.

Oil light comes on; engine rattles/clicks at higher rpms


have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure test gauge to verify the true oil pressure, this could just be a oil pressure gauge sending unit problem, this is very common.
