Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

Oil light comes on and is dinging.


The oil light has nothing to do will oil level, but rather oil PRESSURE. If the engine oil is full and there is no rattling or banging noises in the engine, chances are the oil pressure sending unit is bad. If noises accompany the light, then shut down the engine and troubleshooting the engines internal lubrication system.

Oil light keeps flashing, car full of oil


Low oil pressure could be the reason the oil light in your car will come on. Test your oil pressure. Without enough pressure, the oil will not reach necessary areas of the engine. The oil pressure sensor itself may sometimes become clogged with sludge from the engine, especially if the engine has not been properly maintained. A clogged oil sensor can give a false reading of low oil pressure, which will illuminate your oil light. So, check the oil pressure sensor light.

My low oil pressure and low engine oil light are constantly coming on in my van but the oil is full?


If you have two different warning lights, it could be a wiring problem.
The low oil pressure warning could come on even if the engine is full of oil. If that is the only light coming on, it could be the sending unit or you could actually have low oil pressure.

Oil light comes on when car idles


The light means the oil pressure has dropped below 10psi.
You could replace the oil pressure switch and see if the light stays off, or have the pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.
Make sure the engine oil level is full.

I have a 94 Land Rover Disco. Two weeks ago the check oil light come on, I checked the oil and it was full, I then checked all the other fluid levels, and they were fine. I then changed the oil, yet the...


either your pressure is low causing the light to come on , and dangerous to your engine , or the oil pressure sending unit is dead. It is just a small pressure switch that screws into the side of the engine block and reads the oil pressure. If the pressure is low , or the sensor is dead , the light comes on. Oil pressure sending units die a lot more often then oil pumps , and they are not expensive to buy , or hard to install. The hardest part of the job is actually locating on your engine. Its location should be easy to find out online.

Oil light comes on during full throttle


That can be caused by low oil, low oil pressure, a filter starting to clog, wrong type of oil in engine, or the oil needing changed. You should first change the oil and filter then check your oil pressure and go from there.
