Check if the oil is clogged , if the duration or mileage hs exceeded the limit for oil change , if not check the oil pressure switch for fault.
However if the switch is OK then the oil pump pressure is down and is not a healthy sign. you might need serious attention to the engine, might even need an overhauling

Oil light flickers at red light


If the oil warning light comes on, it means the oil pressure switch-sensor is faulty or your oil pressure really is dropping below 5 psi.
You would need to replace the sensor or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to figure out the issue.

After my truck warms up, when rpms drop below 1000 oil pressure lite comes on


If the oil level is not low, better have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge by a shop. No or very low oil pressure can be fatal for engines. Possible your oil pump is worn. If the pump is good, oil pressure can be affected or lost if the crankshaft bearings are worn. Has the oil and filter been changed regularly?

My oil light comes on when car idles below 1000 rpms mazda mpv 2003


Your motor oil level is low.
The oil light indicates low oil pressure - at higher RPMs the oil sending unit (oil pump) can create
a little oil pressure, but at lower RPMs it fails to keep up.
If the oil level is good, then the oil sending unit itself is going bad.

The oil light comes on at times and goes off as the rpms go up. What can be done about the light?


Maybe your engine is idling too slowly, If the revs are below say 700rpm the low pressure warning light could come on especially when the engine is hot.. If the idle speed is ok try a heavier grade of oil in the engine. Next try a new oil pressure sensor. It's got to be one of these things. Check the engine running temperature . An over-hot engine will cause the oil light to come on too.

My 1996 GMC jimmy wants to stall when I come to a stop. The RPM gage goes up & down then drops below 1000 RPMS and stalls.


I would go down to your local auto parts store and do an alternator and battery test. It sounds like at low rpms you are loosing volts. When you apply the brakes you would be supprised how much power from the engine it takes. You could also be loosing oil pressure. Check your oil level. When your engine drops low rpm, the oil pressure drops and shuts down the engine.

Low oil pressure on 2001 Suburban


your oil sensor comes on at less than ten psi, you may have internal engine damage how many miles on engine, any gum up inside engine, you can try to put on a high pressure high volume melling oil pump to try to help for the time being, but you may need to have it torn and repaired.

OIL LIGHT COMES ON WHEN RPMS GO BELOW 10000


I'm guessing you mean 1000 so make sure you have oil first off then have it changed if you are due for it. After that you need to have the pressure switch checked, and or a mechanical test of your oil pressure
