Replace the oil pressure sender. The sender is what is turning the warning light on.If you replace the oil pressure sender it should fix the flickering light problem. If it does not , the light is an indication of more serious motor killing problem. Fortunately, the sender is under $10 and usually fails before the actual oil pump.

Try changing to the next higher oil viscosity ( if using 10w30, try 10w40)

My 1984 nissan pickup oil light is flickering


if the oil is clean,meaning changed regularly,and is full and you have no engine noise while driving or at idle then you have a bad oil pressure switch that will need to be replaced.this is an electrical switch that uses oil pressure to push on the switch to turn off the light.sometimes they get tired and don`t work as intended.and usually fail at idle as there is not enough oil pressure to over come the defect of the switch to turn off the light.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Oil Light at Low RPMS.


I had the same exact problem over the weekend. We decided to go cheap first and replace the Oil Pressure Switch. It's like $6.00 at Auto Zone here in Texas. (don't know if you are from the states). It ended up being the switch. It's located right by the oil filter and it's very easy to change. Just make sure you have a wrench or deep socket bigger than 15/16. I think we used a 1 inch wrench.

If it's not the switch, its most likely the oil pump, but don't forget to check the hose, it could be bent or crimped.

Hope this helps :D

Oil Pump light flickering + rough idle on 1996 Nissan Maxima


Sounds more like the Throttle Position Sensor or another sensor is letting the engine RPM's drop too low. When the RPM's are too low, the oil pump is not pumping enough oil.
