Yes. There's a bright red oil pressure light. It's the one which you see briefly when the ignition is in the on position before turning fully to start. The light goes off as soon as the engine is running with normal oil pressure and only come on again if the oil pressure drops below specifications or if the sensor is faulty.

Transmission warning light

If you replaced the fluid with the proper type (NOT ENGINE OIL) the transmission system has to be checked by someone equipped to determine the problem - before it fails.

My son thinks his a mechanic experimenting ,place a fan as big as palm size in the air induction hose ,he start the escalade and test drive ,he heard a grinding and then knocking sound in the engine, then...

could be the oil pump has failed grinding sound then knocking sound could also be the timing is out or failing that something forren has got into the engine. check all these out and don't run the engine you are making the engine worse. if pump for the oil has gone and the engine has been run can mean a new engine. if timing belt has moved could be a new head will be needed. and pistons. failed oil pump does more damage in the long run as the hole engine needs oil.

Engine light is on, oil light is on, hazor light keeps beeping. I have a SAAB 2002 93.

An oil pressure warning light or low gauge reading means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed.

My oil pressure light stays on even after fitting a new one

I don't want to worry you but have you checked to see if the oil pump is ok, as if it has failed the oil pressure will be the problem not the switch which operates the warning light. ? Have you tried taking off the oil filler cap whilst the engine is running as if you do that you can sometimes be able to see ( with the aid of a torch/flashlight ) if the oil is getting pumped up to the timing gear, i.e. the camshaft and the valve gear, followers etc. If the oil is sluishing about at the top of the engine ( spitting out even ) then that is some good indication that the oil is being pumped up by the oil pump from the bottom of the engine ( where it is usually situated above the oil sump at the base of the engine) Furthermore...The oil pump 'pick up' pipe usually has a gauze filter attached to it, to stop any ' foreign bodies' entering the lubrication system if it has become blocked the oil flow into the pump will be restricted and could cause a low pressure warning, Unfortunately the only way I know to check this is by 'dropping' i.e. removing the sump which can be a big job depending on the access to it.I am not familiar with your model of car nor am I a qualified mechanic but know quite a bit about how engines work and how to fix problems. Also if there is insufficient oil in the engine this will cause the warning light to come on. Have you tried changing the oil as old worn out oil might also give you problems including wrecking your engine. I hope something I have said may be helpful, Good Luck...... Stephen

Oil warning light flashing mean?

Normally, if you get a oil warning light signal (flashing) could be a few things related to it. Number one, you are low on oil. Check your oil level and make sure it is at full level. Number two, is possibly oil filter is dirty, ( time for service,oil change) or problem with oil pump or oil pump pressure. BUT I would first start with checking oil level and then maybe a oil change.

The warning light fo the oil keeps staying on even after putting oil in it

The warning light is for oil pressure.

First check the dipstick, make sure there's enough oil in the engine.
If so, then there may be a problem with the oil filter, when was it last changed.
It could be the sender, is the connection good and clean.
Finally the oil pump filter may be blocked, or possibly the oil pump has failed.

Oil pressure guage drops off to nothing after vehicles runs for awhile 1999 chevy blazer 4.3 vortec engine

get it inspected. you may have engine sludge, or a failed oil pump, or a bad gauge or sender, or possible a failed engine. The main bearings on the crankshaft could be warn out causing this. Do not drive with no oil pressure or the engine will surely fail if it hasn't already.

Oil pressure warning light comes on when slowing to a stop. Goes off when you accelerate.

either your eng. oil pump is failing or just so low on oil that the pick up tube cant pick any oil up, check eng oil level first, if level is ok....then your oil pump is definitely failing
