Oil light keeps comeing on ???


Remove the electric sender and install mechanical oil gauge to check that you have proper oil pressure. Bet ya the main bearings are not fitted correctly or the engine wasn't cleaned during overhaul and now bearings are trashed.

Oil light keep coming on even when oil level is ok


Try replacing the sensor. They are not usually very expensive.
When the engine is COLD! Remove the wire to the sensor and unscrew it. A deep socket will be easiest. The hole will only leak a small amount of oil. Wipe the excess oil out of the hole and fit the new sensor. Turn it until it is tight but DON'T force it. Reconnect the wire and clean away any spilt oil.

1990 dodge caravan Le,the dash gauges all turn off after 10 sec of starting the van


ALWAYS check the body grounds first. Ground to the dash gages could be faulty, dirty, or just not tight enough to make a good connection.

Oil light flashing and beeps. it only comes on after driving a min or two


Make sure there is enough oil in it! This is the main reason the oil light comes on flashing and beeping. Possibly a faulty oil sensor if the oil level id fine.

Oil light comes on after driving for 10 mins only when the revs are under 1000. i changed oil and filter and still comes on


You may have an oil reset button or a method for reseting the light itself via the ignition and pedals depending on your year make and model.

After 20-30 min. driving oil light comes on when stopped. oil light goes back off when moving again.


There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).

Oil Pressure Light Comes On after 10 min of Driving


You may not have put the right amount of oil in your car, your oil pressure sensor could be faulty, or you may have a leak.

By revving your engine, you're increasing the pressure and thus turning off the light and making the sensor think that it's at the correct pressure.

Oil presure light comes on after driving 15 min. only when i stop. this just started after i gave it a rutine oil change. when ii turn the heater on it stops coming on .


After making sure that you used the propper oil filter and the correct grade of oil. inspect the Oil presure switch. if you see it wet with oil, replace it. given that you hear no internal engine noises, while you come to a stop and the light comes on. Then more that likely you have the wrong filter. please doubble check your oil level, 2.. Hope this helps
