Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora with a 4.0 V8 engine. When the car is sitting still at a redlight etc., the "Low Oil Pressure" warning light comes on. When I start again it stops alarming until I come to a stop again. I notice it usually happens when the car is warmed up above 220 degrees. Is it the oil pump or possibly the oil cooler?

I had this same problem. I put in a can of engine restorer and lubricant, the 8 cyliner formula and had no more problem with that light coming on. this is found at advanced auto at about 10.00 a can. it will restore your engine's compression.

I have a 1995 olds aurora with a northstar. The oil level is fine but the computer says low oil pressure when at a stop light. Is this the oil sensor or oil pump?

Oil pressure is generally not related to oil level unless the oil level is low.
Oil pressure is created by a pump and as the engine parts wear over time, the oil passes through them easier causing oil pressure to drop.
It is also possible that the loss of pressure is caused by an oil pump that has worn, but don't get your hopes up.
If the vehicle has a lot of mileage, has been driven hard, has not had the oil changed regularly, this occurs.
It is sometimes possible to put additives in your car that are "thicker" than oil and this will give you some time to decide what to do.

Oil leak from the hose an 1995 oldsmobile aurora

Mostly likely it's coming from the oil cooler lines from the motor to the radiator. My friend's Aurora has the same leak, we replaced the oil pressure sending unit, which is close by the lines, but the lines, where the compressed part of the fitting was leaking there. The oil cooler lines will have to be replaced.

Oldsmobile aurora where is the oil sending unit.My daughter hit a curb with her car and now the the oil light is on and the on board computer say that she has low oil pressure .It is a 1999 V8 4.0 L ....

It should be on the left side of the engine(front of car) wiring runs under and around oil pan maybe wires are torn or pulled out of connector.oil sending unit is usually right in the same area of oil filter.

98 Olds Aurora V8 gives me an in-dash and audible low oil pressure warning. Engine running normal, there is no tapping and the oil level is where it should be. Oil needs changed according to indicator, but...

check for the oil pressure sending unit. i'm not sure where on the engine this sensor is on your vehicle, but look for a single wire sensor somewhere on the side of the block. hopefully, there'll be a bit of oil dripping from it, because it's a fairly cheap part and easy to replace. otherwise, you may actually have low pressure from a clogged pump pick tube or bad pump.

Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8

Thicker oil is all you need. 5w30 is too thin when it warms up and the sensor cant pick up the flow going past. 10w40 should stop all the issues

Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8

Low pressure when at idle, after the engine has warmed up and the oil has thinned, indicates that the oil pump is worn and needs to be replaced.
