This light is an indicator that you have oil sludge in your engine and you should stop driving your vehicle and get it checked out right away. By continuing to drive the vehicle can cause further damage to your vehicle.

My Volks wagen Golf told me abou oil press, What does it mean


it means that the oil pressure is too low for safe operation. stop and check oil level. If the level is right get it to a dealer service centre to have the pressure checked on a mechanical gauge as it may be just the sender unit. no oil pressure is very unforgiving in an engine and very costly.

Oil pressure low stop engine and check guage


Fist check oil level, the sensor is a pressure switch worked by oil pressure, hopefully the sensor has gone faulty. The oil pressure needs checking, if the oil pump or relief valve has gone faulty, the engine is being starved of lubrication and is causing internal damage. It is advisable NOT to run the engine till the pressure has been checked. (hope it's the sensor)

Stop Engine, Low Oil Pressure message comes across message center when vehicle stops at a red light or stop sign for 30 secs or more


If you rev the engine does it go away? What is probably happening is that you have damaged or worn engine bearings. These bearings are designed so that there is a gap(clearance) between the crankshft and the bearing. This gives a space for the oil to pass through. If the clearance is too big the oil will pass through too quickly and the oilpump will not be able to build up pressure, even though the volume of oil pumped is sufficient.
When the oil is cold it is thick and the sensor sees the pressure as normal. As the engine oil heats up it gets thinner and that causes the pressure to drop. Also the lower the RPM the lower the pressure. I would suggest you get the oil pressure tested at a service centre ASAP. Also have them test the sensor although sensor failure is rare. Low oil pressure will not just go away and causes more damage the more you drive increasing your repair bill considerably.
I'd say you are already in for a cranshaft regrind and oversize bearings. Perhaps (if you're lucky) only just an oil pump although this is unlikely as bearings tend to fail before an oil pump does. I'd replace both at the same time since the engine has to come out for both these repairs. The cost of having the engine out a 2nd time far outweighs the saving on spares when doing both the first time.

WARNING MESSAGE sTOP: OIL PRESSURE ...wHAT IS


Check your oil, it may be low if not the oil pressure needs checked. The sending switch could be bad or you have low oil pressure. If you have low oil pressure have it fixed ASAP. The loss of oil pressure can cause severe engine damage.
