It could be a bad oil pump, clogged oil pick up in he pan, or just a bad sensor.

2007 Honda odyssey oil pressure @ hot idle 100K miles. How much psi

It can vary. Most vehicles will run at or above 40 psi on oil pressure, but can function at lower ones. Less than 20 psi would be cause for concern for long term wear issues or oil pump failure.

Oil pressure light comes on?

You must immediately check your engine oil level and take appropriate action: unless you have a defective oil pressure sensor, oil pressure light usually indicates that your engine oil is not flowing properly. Some possible issues: low oil level (leaking engine?), blocked oil filter (when did you last get your car service) or defective or blocked oil pump due to excessive dirty engine oil.
Hope it is of assistance.

97 7.3 diesel hard starting

This is a good engine but they need work from time to time. What is the outside temperature while you experience this hard start? If you plug in the block heater, does the engine start better? Is the engine light on or does it come on at times while you are driving? Hard starts can be related to several different issues. This engine isn't easy to work on unless you have an advanced scan-tool. You need to look at live data and run some tests. The more common failures are clogged fuel and air filter. Dirty ,worn, or defective fuel injectors, low fuel-line fuel pressure, poor oil quality or low oil level, worn or defective ICP sensor, low injection pump pressure, loose or leaking IPR valve, or low compression. These examples should help get you started. You may need to have the truck diagnosed so you know what direction to go in. If you need any additional information, please write back. Good luck.

What reason is caused?A BMW X5 engine oil pressure warning light

May be due to oil pump wear, filter blocked by dirt, oil filter is exposed out of the oil surface, the oil level is low, the oil mixed with air and the pressure gauge is caused by the failure of the.

Oil pressure indicator lamp illuminates intermittently

1. check oil level now! If low, add as needed, and keep checking regularly.
2. If level is OK, check oil pressure switch (or sending unit), and the connections at the switch.
3. Have the oil pressure measured by a good mechanic. If the pressure is good, it means that the problem lies somewhere in the pressure sensor or indicator circuit. If the pressure is low, there is a problem in the engine - either a clogged oil filter, bad oil pump, or blockage within the engine.

Sensor oiel what it does when he is not good

I think what was meant is the oil pressure sensor which is a pressure switch and indicates the pressure when the engine runs. This is very much critical as a low pressure will show up as an error- check engine /oil- and can shut off the ECM.
So if the pressure sensor is bad it will indicate or if the oil pressure is low it will be sensed to indicate for action.-- check oil ,oil filter or oil pump.

The oil lights stays on in my 1994 honda accord ex

This is a matter that you should pay immediate attention to.
The oil light can indicate low oil level in your engine, or low oil pressure. Both can be fatal to your engine.

Check your oil level first.
Look for evidence of leaking oil (possinility a loose oil filter)
The oil pressure sending unit or connections could also be causing the problem

What does a low oil pressure alarm mean

It means the sensor that detects your oil pressure has seen a situation where the oil pressure is too low and engine damage will result. Could be just a bad sensor, but better have it checked with a mechanical gauge to see exactly what the pressure is.

No oil pressure

Make sure that you are using the correct grade of oil for your car and climate.
Oil pressure warning light ON usually indicates a problem with 'low' engine lubricating oil pressure and is a CRITICAL issue that needs to be fixed before you blow your engine.
Some of the causes:
- Wrong oil type for your car and weather
- Low oil level
- loose oil cap or dip stick seal
- Leaking oil gaskets or engine seals (common in old cars)
- Blocked oil filter
- Faulty oil pump or block internal oil pump filter
