Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
Posted by Anonymous on
There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).
