It means you have low engine oil pressure due to a failed oil pressure pump or pressure regulator which IS going to lead to engine failure very soon or you have a faulty sending unit or gauge. Do not drive it, get it towed to the dealer! Not meaning any dis respect to your self, but have you checked the oil on your dip stick? Low engine oil level will also cause this...if it's very low or not on the dip stick again do not drive it but go get oil with a friend and top it up and start your car...if the low oil pressure light goes away you got lucky, but there is the possibility you have already harmed the engine depending on how long the light has been on and you may want to see your dealer...we're not talking about a hyundai here, your engine is probably more valuable! haha

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor


Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

What does low oil pressure on 2008 Chevy Impala 3.5 V6 LS


Do you mean what causes low oil pressure? This is a very reliable engine for the most part. If the oil light is on or gauge is reading low, have the oil pressure sensor inspected for failure. These sensors do go bad.

Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

Toyota Avalon 2001 oil pressure light came on yesterday and I checked oil level and filled appropriately, cam on again as I was about half way home engine shut off before I could pull over, waited a few...


The warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
The problem could be the pressure switch, or you really could have low oil pressure.
Driving the car with low oil pressure will damage the engine.

Ford escort van oil light keeps flickering


The light means the oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the engine is low on oil. It could have low oil pressure, or the pressure switch could be faulty.

Why is oil light blinking?


Oil light blinking usually indicated low oil pressure / viscosity. Probably either low on oil, incorrect oil weight, poor quality oil, or needs oil changed..........Mike

My low pressure oil light keeps coming on when i stop and i just got my oil changed. The oil is not low. What could be the problem?


Hi,
That means LOW PRESSURE , not low in volume. Pressure is measured in PSI. The reason that your light comes on when you are at a stop is because your engine goes to idle at a stop and would normally have lower pressure. That doesn't mean you should get a low pressure light though.. I would have it checked by a pro right away as this could be your first warning before a serious problem.

Hopes this Helps,

My low oil pressure light is on and I don't know whaat else to check besides the oil


If the low oil pressure light is on. It doesn't neccessarily mean that the oil is low. It can mean that the seals are worn or the oil pump is wearing out. Have you checked the compression in each cylinder to rule out worn oil piston rings?
