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.

2009 Saturn Vue message flashing "low oil


The obvious answer is the engine has low oil pressure.
Assuming the engine oil level is ok, someone would need to check engine oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to find out if the problem is the engine or the oil pressure switch.

Oil Pressure Low- Shut Off Engine message


If your Oil Pressure Sending Unit went bad, it will do this

If you have a Blockage in the Oil system, it can do it

If you are low on oil, it will do this

If you have done Damage to the Engine, it can do this

If you increase your oil to 20W-50 and the light goes off, you have a worn journal or Bearing Wear

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex

2011 Ford Edge was purchased brand new one month ago. while driving today the "low oil engine pressure" alarm activated. oil was subsequently checked and is at proper level. Engine starts,...


I had the same problem after 5 months of purchasing a 2011 Edge. The Oil Engine Pressure light comes on and stays on after driving 10 minutes and stopping for gas- it turns off shortly after I start driving again. I had a 2007 Edge as well and never had this problem. I just took the 2011 Edge back to the dealer. They could not duplicate the problem and instead reset all computer settings. The next day the same Oil Engine Pressure light came back on. Anyone out there with any suggestions?

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.

1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo oil pressure low on ilde


I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

2001 a4, oil pressure light alarm.


Your mechanic is yanking your chain. (or you mis-understanding.)

Oil pressure light does not have to be "reset." There may be CODES that need to be reset but they would turn on the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. (I think, on your car, this is picture of engine with a check mark.) If the Check Engine Light (CEL) is flashing, it means you have a serious engine problem and should NOT be driving the car without finding the reason for the light. (Around here, many auto parts store will "pull the codes" for free.)

Oil pressure light could mean you are low on oil, have a bad sensor, wire or even a oil pump. The oil pump is inside the engine.

this one is difficult to diagnose without putting a oil pressure gauge on the engine to check oil pressure ,hopefully ??its just the switch but ??? ...If oil pressure is low then change the oil and filter and put in a can of STP oil treatment and trade it in quick
