HI, The Oil Light comes on to show a low oil pressure not just that it is low on oil. If your not experience any unusual engine noise i would not suspect low oil pressure but more likely a bad oil pressure sending unit.

Here are a few things to try. I just went through this ordeal and it is not an easy thing to troubleshoot. First thing if your oil level is fine I'd change the oil sending unit very cheap part and easy to replace and while doing this i would also recommend changing the oil and oil filter. If this does not solve the problem then this is where it gets up in price to fix. It is either a bad/weak oil pump or your engine bearing clearance is too much. Oil Pump replacement your looking at about 250 to 600 dollars depending to replace it depending on vehicle. However if you don't hear any knocking or ticking noise coming from the engine it probably is still okay. If you don't want to replace the pump or cannot afford to I'd add some lucas to it or 20w50 oil. I had the same issue replaced my pump and still the light came on. I cannot afford to replace the engine bearings so i added a bottle of lucas and a bottle of 20w50 oil and no light, no problems.

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

Oil light comes on and is dinging.


The oil light has nothing to do will oil level, but rather oil PRESSURE. If the engine oil is full and there is no rattling or banging noises in the engine, chances are the oil pressure sending unit is bad. If noises accompany the light, then shut down the engine and troubleshooting the engines internal lubrication system.

Either you have a bad oil pump, or your oil sending unit is bad. You can easily find either at your corner auto parts store. (Autozone, Advanced Autoparts, Napa, Etc.)

My low oil pressure and low engine oil light are constantly coming on in my van but the oil is full?


If you have two different warning lights, it could be a wiring problem.
The low oil pressure warning could come on even if the engine is full of oil. If that is the only light coming on, it could be the sending unit or you could actually have low oil pressure.

Oil light is still on.


The RX 8 engine burns oil pretty bad. Majority of time the oil light coming on is due to the oil level being just a little low. When the engine is cold check the oil level if its full then is another issue but if a little low just add a little oil at a time till full then light should stay off.

Oil light comes on, engine oil full


Yes. But it could also be a bad oil sending unit. Do not drive the car until you figure it out. If the oil pump is bad you risk destroying your engine.

WHAT TYPE OF OIL SHOULD I PIT IN MY 2000 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE V8 4.7L. ENGINE LIGHT ON AND NOTICED NO OIL ON THE DIP STICK


5W30...You mean the OIL LIGHT? Engine light is different that the oil light. The Ck Engine Light wont go on because oil is low. You cant drive the car with the oil light on, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE WILL RESULT.
