Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket maybe. Does the smoke have a sweet smell to it? If not it is oil or fuel.

Bmw316i oil light comes on while idlingand goes off when revs are higher

In general terms, the problem could be a faulty oil pressure switch, or you could actually have low oil pressure. You can verify which issue you have by checking oil pressure with a mechanical gauge or by replacing the switch.

The oil pressure is low at idle and rises with higher engine revs. Oil levels are ok, new oil approx 2000kms ago. Was a slight noise at one stage in the engine but went away after engine's revs in

It sounds as if the clearance that the bearings normally run in have been surpassed and need to be replaced. Higher engine revs will supply extra oil which will overcome any small discrepencies but constant running at this stage will result in faster degradation of all engine components concerned resulting in a more expensive repair. Shes basically worn out.

Oil preser lowers at lights

Hi there,

That is natural. The oil pressure rises in response to engine rpm's.

Idling at a light? Low oil pressure

55 mph on the highway? Higher oil pressure

Good job keeping an eye on it. And remember to change your oil every 3,000 miles.

Best regards

When accelerate gas pedal seems to stick causing the car to **** back and engine light is on

ive had the same issue on a daewoo, there will be a screw by the throtal body you need to tighten up a bit. should make you car rev about 50rpm higher, your throtal body is jamming shut most likely, as far as the engine light gos, do you have oil and everythink at the right level

Oil light comes on intermittantly at idle RPM; off at higher RPM. Car was just in for maintenance and oil level appears to be OK.

Probably the engine bearings are getting a little worn. Using 10/40 instead of 10/30 oil will improve idle oil pressure as will replacing the oil pump and cleaning the intake screen. Make sure the idle speed is set correctly.

On my 2001 olds aurora 4 liter engine when I come to stop at traffic light low oil pressure light comes on until I bring RPM's up,is there a way to increse idling?

Sounds like your oil pump is bad - I'd have that checked. You can adjust throttle via the screw on the throttle line (look for the intake and there should be somthing resembling a bicycle cable going to the round throttle body). Tighter = higher idle. Fix the cause as soon as possible as this can destroy your engine quickly.
