These two are 99% not connected. how high is your oil pressure? this is probably the normal oil pressure and you just started looking at thing since your check engine light came on. you could also have a problem with the oil sending unit itself.
go to garage and have your engine scanned.
if you have any more problems with your jeep you would be better off to post on a jeep forum like

good luck

Oil pressure indicator light comes on


Hey Joe,
Are you sure it's the hydraulic oil low pressure or is it the engine oil low pressure light? Check the engine oil for being low, over full, filter change, right type of oil, leaks, air filter, spark plug, clean air intake, battery getting a good charge, if that stuff is ok, then find your oil pressure switch and change that out.
But it if it is the hydraulic oil light, check for leaks, that is a high pressure system so don't put your hand by hydraulic leaks use cardboard or something to check for leaks, a pin hole leak can cause severe damage to your skin from a high pressure injection from fluid.
Let me know if this helps and we can go from here

Oil pressure problem at idle , ok at light throttle


If your problem is that the oil pressure gauge shows zero or very little oil pressure, or if the warning light flashes or remains on, at idle, but pressure returns at light throttle, you need to get your engine checked. Make sure your engine has sufficient oil - reading on dip stick is in the normal range. At idle, your engine is not getting sufficient lubrication. If you have high mileage on your vehicle, the bearings (crankshaft, rod, cam) may be worn. Or you may have impending oil pump failure. Have the oil pressure checked with a direct reading gauge. If you do not get this checked and repaired as necessary, your engine may fail from the lack of lubrication.

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.


You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

Oil light on


low oil level or bad sending unit. usually not a weak oil pump but very high mileage engines can have low oil pressure. (this, however is a very gradual drop from normal wear in bearings and not the typical cause for oil warning light).

Oil light on after engine warm-up on idle


this means a mechanical gauge test is required to check actual pressure warm idling if low below 20 psi then the oil pressure pump relief is stuck open or engine bearing are worn

2004 lincoln avaitor oil light comes on the engine shuts down


Does the oil light come on BEFORE the engine shuts down? I have to ask because it is NORMAL for the oil light to be on when the engine is not running. I had a customer that said the same thing just last week. After we wasted a bunch of time (which the customer ended-up paying for) checking the oil level, the oil pressure, and verifying correct oil pressure gauge, light, and sending unit operation, it turned out that the crankshaft position sensor was bad and causing the engine to shut down and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the oil light - it was functioning as designed.

If the oil light is coming on before the engine shuts down, the first thing you need to do is check your oil level. If the oil level is OK, you need to check the oil pressure with a gauge to determine if there is an actual engine oil pressure problem or if the oil pressure sending unit, gauge or light is malfunctioning. Also, it is highly advisable to not drive the vehicle AT ALL if the oil pressure light is coming on while driving until the cause of the light coming on has been determined and repairs have been made. Otherwise, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE may result.

Hello, I have a couple of questions. First of all my 1991 Honda Civic won't pass the emissions, it is considered a gross polluter and has high Nox and CO. I know this is a common problem in these cars of...


High CO should cancell Nox, catalytic is finished so youll need a catalytic.you cant have those 2 high together.Oil light came on,when the oil light comes on it means that the oil pressure is too low and not enough pressure to lubicate moving parts, checking the dip stick you only check the volume, your oil light checks the pressure.Check the oil again is it silverish,or rich black,and upon start up is there a thud noise? if yes the crank shaft and engine is locking up. So how much ? for the year . Salvage yard , dont rebuild, and here what you need to price a catalytic convertor, and a used engine, I hope this helped

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Engine light on/Oil Gauge on stays on high


Any waranties left? Is oil full? Any noises from engine? Did you put a mechanical gauge on it and check "real" oil pressure? (I would not drive it 'till I was sure about actual oil pressure!!)
