You may be having a problem with your IACV idle air control valve. It is located on your Throttle body(follow the tube from your air cleaner to the throttle body) It will be on the the right below the tube. It is held on by three screws. It runs $430 at the dealer. I got one off of a junkyard throttle body for $30 and recycled the rest of the throttle body.

    The problem can also be a dirty EGR valve. The exhaust gas recycling valve is located underneath the IACV valve and should be cleaned first. If the idle speed is still effected after cleaning the EGR valve then replace the idle air control valve.

2002 Lancer OZ Rally...


I had the same problem with my 2003 Lancer OZ. The oil level and pressure were ok. Car was fine with no light when starting. After 10 to 15 mins of driving it would come on when I was stopped. It would go away when I pressed accelerator. Try replacing the Oil Sending Unit. It's about $10 and easy to swap. That was my problem.
