Oil pump is worn but still working. It will still work OK for a year or 2, but if your mileage isn't too high (150K?) and you want to keep this car a long time, I recommend getting a new oil pump.

Have the sender checked. I believe there was a bulletin about this. have a repair shop research it. Its not a good idea to drive it when the light is on. Engine damage will result.

What this is telling you is that you have very low oil pressure. Is your cars oil level up? If you have a proper oil level in you car then you could have a bad sensor. Then on the other hand your oil pump may be going bad. Hopefully this gives you at least some place to start and I hope this helps you out a little.

Okay What it means is that the oil in your car is either low in level or the oil pressure at low revolutions is low. I highly recommend you to stop driving the car when this happen because you can internally damage the engine with a low oil or a low pressure of oil. Check the oil level first..make sure level is fine and oil looks good. Black and burned oil will give you a low oil pressure as well. If it happen that your car need a oil change. Make sure you get it done and see if the problem goes away. Very rarely oils pressure sensor goes bad but if oil is new and level is fine you can take the oil pressure sensor and connect a tester for a oil pressure. If this is not under the manufacturer specifications.. oil pump is worn out and you have to replace it for a new one.
Good luck and don't forget to rte me. Thanks

Hi,

The overheating and lack of cabin heat both point to a failed engine thermostat which would be stuck closed. At the warm up stage, the coolant stays in the engine block to bring the engine to efficient operating temperature, then it opens and circulates the coolant through the radiator and heat core. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the engine will overheat, and coolant will never reach the heater core, and you will not get cabin heat.

Blinking oil light at idle which goes away during driving could be a low oil level, but may also be a drop in oil pressue. You could have a clogged oil fliter (at best) pickup tube, or a failing oil pump.

I suspect that because your car is 13 years old it has high mileage. That would cause this because things are starting to wear out. You could try going to a heavier oil like a 15W-40 or 20W-50. The heavier oil will build pressure and will lubricate better because it's thicker. It's time to start planning your next step because that won't last forever. You looking at an engine rebuild or replacement.
If the mileage is low you should get the oil pump checked out. It may be going. Hope this helps.
