Check and clean the connection on oil switch plug also try running an engine oil flush and changing the oil if that doesnt fix it then try removing the sump off the engine and cleaning the oil pick up

Oil pressure problem at idle , ok at light throttle


If your problem is that the oil pressure gauge shows zero or very little oil pressure, or if the warning light flashes or remains on, at idle, but pressure returns at light throttle, you need to get your engine checked. Make sure your engine has sufficient oil - reading on dip stick is in the normal range. At idle, your engine is not getting sufficient lubrication. If you have high mileage on your vehicle, the bearings (crankshaft, rod, cam) may be worn. Or you may have impending oil pump failure. Have the oil pressure checked with a direct reading gauge. If you do not get this checked and repaired as necessary, your engine may fail from the lack of lubrication.

Would a bad oil pressure switch cause an above safe oil level on the dip stick


if to much oil in vehicle --not on level ground --engine running while checking oil -or not swiping stick clean before reading it these are reasons for high reading on dip stick oil pressure sensor/switch only measures the pressure of the oil

2006 vw passat. screen says stop! warning low oil. engine off ? what does that mean? Also servive engine now! I just bought the car yesterday and it has no owners manual. I did notice what looked like...


First, check your engine oil level , while on level ground, add if it's low. (The oil viscosity should be labeled on the oil filler cap) Blue smoke is a sign of burning oil, not a good sign. White smoke is a sign of coolant mixing with your engine oil, a worse sign.
Your computer is telling you to check your oil, so do it, or get it done.
If your oil is low, top it off and keep checking it regularly to see if your engine is consuming it. If it is, I would recommend getting it looked at for either a leak, or low compression. (Worn out piston rings will cause oil consumption and poor performance.)

Have you ever heard of the engine oil reservoir being full and the dipstick reading empty? I just bought an old 1985 toyota pickup truck and it was fine until I had my oil changed. After driving for a...


When your car is low on oil, there is a sensor (sometimes called a switch, as well) that will light up an indicator inside the car to inform you of the low oil level. In some cases, checking the dipstick will show that there is actually oil present, which can be confusing and frustrating because it contradicts the sensor. If this happens to be the case, more than likely the oil pressure switch/sensor is malfunctioning and will need replacing.

Oil pressure on my audi a4 is low after been service what will cause this


First check the Dip Stick and see where your oil levels are, if its low, then add more Oil as mechanic may not have replaced the correct amount after service. second, if you can reach your Oil filter in the engine just give it a tighten with your hand as it should only be hand tight. and thirdly look for any signs of an oil leak, either Oil spill inside the engine or under the car. Generally Oil levels should be full after any car service. Good Luck.
