I had a 2000 Focus ZX3 and Mine did the same thing. All I had to do is tighten the oil filter down pretty tight and It went away. Hopefully you get the same result.

I have a 2009 ford KA and when driving on motorways the oil light flickers yet the oil is showing at the max level mark on the dip stick.???


The light is flickering due to low oil pressure or a faulty sender unit.
The first thing to do is to change the oil filter. If it hasn't been changed for a long time it will restrict the flow of oil going through the filter.

My Olds alero 01 2.4 has a metallic tapping noise when in drive, oil pressure light flickers on left turns only, and rpms jump and car bucks at over 65mph. Oil level is fine, just changed it. 72k


The tapping must be a drive train problem, not the engine where it would be tapping all the time. It could be a transmission/transaxle internal problem, or it could be a bad CV joint on the drive shafts. The drive shafts, or half shafts as they are called-one for each side of the car-connect the transaxle to the wheels, and the CV joints on the shafts allow for turning movement and for car suspension movement, while maintaining constant power to the wheels.

As for the oil light and the car bucking, I really would have a shop check the engine's oil pressure to see if it is acceptable. The light only comes on or even flickers at very low oil pressure, and that could be worrisome. It could cause expensive engine repairs. So I suggest you have an oil pressure check along with the tapping in drive, and go from there. They all sound like unrelated events, but you never know.

Why does chech gage show on speedometer also check check gage light comes on


Check your oil level and antifreeze level or change your oil if the problem continues

Flickering Oil LIght


Have you checked your oil level? How long since you have had it changed and a new filter installed? if both these things are good you either have a bad Oil Pressure Sending unit or a bad Oil Pump. I would bet on the Sending Unit.

1995 Ford Windstar Engine Knocking at startup. Driven 2800 miles since last oil/filter change. Oil level SAT, Coolant level SAT and no visible leakage. Engine completely rebuilt 2 years ago. Engine has...


No if the oil light has flickered you have oil pressure loss some time just belive the sensor do help us out. lifter do not cause oil pressure loss pressure is built in the rotation of the crankshaft. The knock under the plenum will point you to that cylinder that is affected, (main bearing) as for a 1995 the injectors can only cause a misfire but no knocking noise,will they honor the warranty

2003 Toyota Corolla oil pressure light flickers then goes to solid after a short period of time. Last time this happened, changed oil and filters and light went away. Now after maybe 1000 miles of driving,...


see if you have any oil level or pressure sensors. sometimes these can get gunked up. You may need a new oil pump. I suggest you start using a senthetic oil (valvoline,mobil 1 is reccomended) after u get the problem fixed.

My wife says the oil light just came on her 2001 beetle (is this a low level sensor?)


oil pressure sensor = when oil light comes on = sensor is not recieving a high enough oil pressure. 1) Did you check the oil level in the engine? 2) if the oil level is fine, and it just had an oil change, the filter (filament style) might have been installed upside down. also does the light come on and beep only during first couyple seconds of being started or while driving down the road?
