I had a similar problem with a 94 accord it would idle for about 20min it would be fine,take the car for a drive and the light would come on,i found that the big end and main bearings were worn i replaced them and cleaned out the sump and oil pick up and the problem was solved. I know its probably not good news but unfortunantly it fixed this car.I hope this helps you.

Why does it shut down while driving?


First, do not run engine low on oil. Next, run tests when it has failed. Spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure?

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.

Their is a couple things to check before replacing the oil sending unit. 1. Verify the wire connection to it is secure. 2. Verify engine is at proper idle and not to low.

Oil pressure light comes on when ideling


Trish-if the engine is warm and/or the car has been driven, you should check the oil level after it has been shut down and sits for 5 minutes. If the level is good (within one quart of being full), you need to at the very least change the oil and try to go with a higher viscosity oil. For instance, if you are using 5w-30, get 10w-40 instead. You do not mention how long it has been since you had the oiol changed, what car/year/engine, and this information should be updated so that you can be assisted more thoroughly. If the light is on 'steady' (not flickering) and the engine seems quiet and smooth, it could be a disconnected sender unit or a defective sender unit-get back here if you can and try providing more information.

The engine light is on when ideling but when driving it is blinking. the engine is missing on one or more cylenders.


Hello.
When the engine light blinks, ( approx. 2 times per second ), it's warning that the catalytic converter is at risk of severe damage.
You really need to get the vehicle checked very soon

While stop oil light blinks on not whlie i am driving.


When the engine is running at idol the oil pressure drops causing the oil light to flash or come on. While driving the engine is running harder and oil pressure is increased and the light goes off. Your oil level may be low in the engine or the oil pump is starting to fail. Is this a vehicle with high mileage?

Oil pressure light went on on my 2000 audi a4 1,8t. What should i do?


could be sender or pump. do not run the engine until you're sure you have a good pump. Does it blink on and off--coming on mainly at idle? This would be normal for an old engine. If it stays on and the pump is bad, you will ruin your engine. You can try replacing the sending uniot, as that is cheap compared to the pump, but don't run it long to check new sender. If new sender stays red, shut down and replace pump.
