usually the oil pressure light means your oil pressure is low. zthat casn be mechanical breakdoown of the oiling system, low oil level, or a worn engine. Low oil pressure caused failures are usually either fatal to the engine or drastically reduce its life span. Whether it is a faulty sensor or an oil delivery problem you should noot drive with the oil light on or the gauge reading no pressure An engine without oil will overheat metal parts beecaause the oil pressure prevents wear on parts by essentially floating them on an oil film at pressure. This is more important than any other fluid and losing oil is your engine bleeding to death. so why did you keep going Most likely you had both an oiling problem and a sensor that was intermittent. zthey are normally on and engine oil pressure deactivates them.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

Hi . Unfortunately it's a common problem with mazda6 engine.When they run low on oil the crank shaft tend to get damaged.And some times people tend to top up oil rather than changing oil between 6000 &10000kms .Yep the engine is seized cost less replacing the engine than repairing it.good luck....

Flahing service engine light soon and engine began shaking


Yep 20 seconds on a machine turning 650 rpms is low on oil wil destroy the bearings in the pistons and crankshaft. Mechanics refer to the red check engine light as the idot light, because by that time it's to late the car ran low on oil and damaged the engine.Try putting some SPT oil treatment in and see if it will fix it temporally otherwise you may be looking for a engine overhaul. If the yellow check engine light is flashings you may have burned the rings up on the pistons and it is now burning oil, or more oil causeing it to throw a code for the 02 sensor. Good luck

If you want to test the oil pressure sending unit, let me know. I can assist with that.

It could be that your engine oil pressure is indeed low -- how many miles on the engine?

Low oil compression


if the needle is on or around the letter N then thats normal. you can also change the oil sending unit. as far as the engine light once you change the EGR valve and the EPT sensor the engine light should go off
