What causes the oil check light to show while there is enough oil

Low oil pressure.
1. Warn oil pump
2. Warn engine bearings
3. Wrong grade of engine oil
Could also be a bad oil pressure sender or electrical connector.
Remove oil pressure sender and and fit a manual gauge to check the true oil pressure.

Oil light on at idle

Two reasons.... oil pressure sender is bad, check this first. You will have to install a manual guage where the oil pressure sending unit is located. If you have not changed you oil regularly, you might have built up sludge in the oil pan and some of the sludge has accumulated on the oil pickup tube located inside of the oil pan.

1993 flickering oil light

If you want to know what it means, the warning light tells the driver the engine oil pressure is below 10psi.
You could be low on oil in the crankcase, it could be a faulty pressure switch, or something may have happened to the oil pump.

I changed the oil in my 2002 Taurus 3.0 Flex Fuel motor an d there doesnt seem to be any oil in the old filter. Any thoughts oon this?

I never heard of such a thing on a running motor. If your oil pump was bad or your pickup tube in the oilpan was off or clogged, it could have an effect. A bad block casting with some oil ports not drilled out would be a remote possibility.

You should have an oil pressure test; take off the oil sender unit and install a test gauge. You may be able to find a test gauge at Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance and they have tool loaner programs.

Please let me know the outcome of this, as it is the first case I have heard of a running motor not using its oil filter.

1995 jeep grand cherokee oil pressure sender

Use a deep well socket and extension on your ratchet. I don't remember the size of socket, but you can size it up with the replacement part. Install the new part by hand first and snug it down with the ratchet. Be careful not to crank it down too tight. Hope this helps.

0il gauge keep reading low pressure

Either you have low oil pressure , or the gauge or sending unit is not working. Oil pressure on my 94 is quite low at idle , but higher when reving. quickest ,cheapest, easiest, first thing to do would be repalce the oil pressure sender unit.
