After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

If you have an oil pressure sensor light that keeps coming on even, if you have just filled up your oil tank to the optimized level, then there's a good chance that it's the oil pressure sensor that's not working. If the light sensor is coming on and off while you are driving, it's most likely a faulty oil pressure sensor. But to make sure, always check your oil tank whenever the light comes on again. If the oil level is still up to the desired level, then it's definitely an oil pressure sensor. This calls for an oil pressure sensor replacement, which is far better than having an engine repaired. It will only cost a couple of bucks to replace a sensor. if above fails, have the oil pressure checked it could be a plugged up oil pump. have a good day !! check the wiring to sensor also.

first I would put in the proper amount of oil, once you are sure the level is full and if the light still comes on, pull the wire from the oil pressure sending unit, the light should go off with key on, if the light goes off then the sensor is bad. replace sensor

Oil light comes on engine is not low on oil 2.7 liter 2ooo intrepip no abnormal engine noise light dose not always come on full bright


You can change the sensor for about $12 as this is what I did then light still came on. I went to the dealer and they changed a harness that goes to the sensor $224. It has been not on. One guy said that the oil pick might need cleaned out with a grass trimmer line to clear sludge if you have not changed your oil promptly. The sensor makes the light come on at 2psi. The engine has 4psi at idle.

your oil pump may be worn and not putting out the proper pressure
the viscosity of the oil may not be correct
the sensor may be faulty
there may be a blockage in the lubrication oil curcuit( try an engine flush)

My wife says the oil light just came on her 2001 beetle (is this a low level sensor?)


oil pressure sensor = when oil light comes on = sensor is not recieving a high enough oil pressure. 1) Did you check the oil level in the engine? 2) if the oil level is fine, and it just had an oil change, the filter (filament style) might have been installed upside down. also does the light come on and beep only during first couyple seconds of being started or while driving down the road?

Oil light comes on and beeps


Changing oil can't hurt. When was the last time you had it changes?How many miles on that engine?Changing approximately ever 3,000 miles is common practice. The engine oil light and the automatic transmission are two seperate problems.     Engine oil light come on because the sensor reads a low oil preasure.If the engine is not worn then the light can be caused by the sensor getting cloged up (from dirty oil ) and not reading the preasure correctly.
