Don't start the engine any more, we know it's not getting oil up there, will cause major engine damage, replace oil pump and pick up screen.

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.

Check gauges light 2001 dodge dakota atfer replacing power steering pump

The oil light is warning the driver the engine has no oil pressure. That could be due to the engine oil level being low, or because of a problem with the oil pump.
is it possible you unplugged or damaged the oil pressure switch on the engine ?

Oil pressure light on - plenty of oil i n engine

it sounds like the bad oil pump to me, before you replace the oil pump one more thing you need to check. If your car is a automatic transmission

1. check the oil pressure switch
2. change the transmission fluid and fiter,
hope this can help.

How many quarts of motor oil does it hold with filter

the oil light isn't for oil level, its for pressure. if the oil is touching the lines on the dipstick, you have plenty. don't overfill it, that will cause other issues, such as smoking and misfiring. make sure the level is between the lines on the dipstick. if the level is correct and the light is still on, there is an internal oil pressure problem, such as oil pump, clogged oil passages, or worn out engine bearings (cam, crank, rods). you should not drive the car if it is full of oil and the oil light is on. have it towed to a shop or serious engine damage could occur, if it already hasn't

No oil pressure. Oil light stayed on longer and longer after starting engine each time until it finally just stayed on. Engine has plenty of oil and new filter.

try replacing the oil sending unit,it is what tells the oil pressure,it just screws in the engine,about $15.00

Dodge caravan '98, oil light on, plenty of oil

If the engine is not making any knocking type noises, check the oil pressure sending unit. If it is leaking oil then it needs to be replaced along with removing the rubber plug from the connector and cleaning the terminals. If the oil light still comes on then the oil pressure is definately low and could cause engine failure.
