Hi, usually, this tells you to check the oil level, as it maybe low. If it is full, you may have an issue with the level sensor, and would need the assistance of a repair shop. Good ,luck...Coop

Where you cornering? Check your oil level and if you haven't changed the oil in the last 3000 to 7000 miles do an oil change. If this persist you will want to have the oil pump checked and the oil pressure sensor.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor


Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

Oil light on but oil is in it


Annie,
Just because there is oil in it does not mean you do not have a problem. When the oil light comes on, you need to shut down so that you do not cause further problems with your engine. I would suggest having your regular mechanic check it to see what the problem could be.

Oil light came on runs really rough and then shuts down. so far i replaced fuel pump, mass air flow sensor, oil pressure sensor and oil level sensor. nothing yet. no check engine light either.


Don't run the engine with the oil light on. No oil pressure means no oil circulation, and damage will result. Have a shop check the oil pressure with a gauge that plugs into the oil pressure sensor port. If no pressure, check if you need a new oil pump.

Toyota Avalon 2001 oil pressure light came on yesterday and I checked oil level and filled appropriately, cam on again as I was about half way home engine shut off before I could pull over, waited a few...


The warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
The problem could be the pressure switch, or you really could have low oil pressure.
Driving the car with low oil pressure will damage the engine.

What does it mean when your engine shuts off and oil light turns on


Most likely it will be your alternator or voltage regulator but just go by auto parts store and have them check it for free. As long as your temperature is not going up. If your temperature is going up check oil level, antifreeze/coolant level, and if those check good, could be oil pump but pretty sure it's alternator

Engine light came on


You should never drive with a red engine light there is always the risk of further damage to engine,this could mean no or low oil pressure driving like that will damage the engine. Check oil level first check coolant level and get back to me.

97 olds 88 check engine light on car stalls periodically


when you say stalls, do you mean shut off of just get low on power?

my check engine light comes on and then oil press light come on and the car shuts off but the lights and music stayed on.
if its that the car needs oil and shuts down to protect itself but it will turn on minutes later.

if stalls periodically, shows check engine light and the car looses a bit of power, in the engine, :

1. your coolant may be having problems getting to the engine in the way it was met to get to the engine

2. the belt might be a bit off and that could be why you get the slipping feeling

3. your exhaust may be a bit clogged. or your engine may need cleaning

i had both problems my car shut off and my engine was slipping. my EXPENSIVE but great machanic found out it was my oil level and my coolant was rusty and not getting to the engine. now she drives like the original 97 olds 88
