Hi,
first check the sender wire to make sure its fastened securely, its probably close to the oil filter, maybe its shorting somehow but most likely its time to change the oil, and oil filter hopefully is clogged. If it still does it after you check those then it could be sludge has built up in the oil pump inlet screen and its not getting pressure the way it should, I wouldnt drive it much untill you either get a a mechanic to look at it, or you pull the oil pan and take a look at the oil filter inlet yourself.

good luck!

2003 echo oil light flickers


Well it could be an oil pressure problem, or a faulty oil pressure switch, or something in the wiring harness.
I would have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

My battery light and brake light goes on , some time goes off and on / I have a new battery and I change the altalnator


Check the battery terminals (where they are connected to the engine.) Those clamps can be loose or corroded. It happened to me and if i hit a bump or the road was bumpy, the battery cables would slide loose and the power would flicker or die completely
Open the hood when the car is off and try to wiggle the positive nad negative connections on your battery. They shouldn't move at all. If they're loose, tighten them up carefully. If they're covered in battery acid or corroded, then you may need new terminals for your new battery to connect well to your engine. Good luck, i hope this helps.

2000 chrysler cirrus, oil light flickers and stays on when car stopped. goes off when driving


hi this could be a few things, first the obviouse one, have you checked to see if the oil in the engine is at the right level, secondly, the oil pump might be about to give in, you will have to get it checked out, thirdly, oil pressure switch if none of the abouve are apparent, then it might be the big ends ( crank shaft where the piston rods connect to it) might be worn , sometimes this will also have a knocking noise with it, but not all the time...hope this helps

Have an 04 lancer. Oil light comes on sometimes just flickers, but only after warmed up and at an idle. driving down the road the light stays off. Oil never low and just changed with filters, brand new...


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.

Oil light on when oil is full


a loose connection WILL NOT cause flickering oil light unless your your oil is empty at the same time a connector is loose. This flickering is most likely caused by clogged oil ports or failing oil pump. When this happens there is insufficient oil running through the engine, causing the sensor to activate the light intermittedly. Have this checked immediately to prevent extensive engine damage. Hopefully this helps!!

Oil light stays on when I start engine but goes off after a while


When you give it gas or idle for awhile the pressure will build up to normal and turn off the light.

If you are consuming oil and coolant you should check your head gasket also.

Oil light comes on 2001 Eclipse


I think you ought to change your oil, and when you do that, buy a can of Seafoam that can be found at your local auto store and dump it down the hole where the oil goes so it can get all in the crank case. If you see white smoke for a little bit dont freak out, its just carbon build up thats burning off. Also have your timing checked.

the flickering oil light is a common problem with the 2.7 engine. as long as the oil level is full and oil is changed regularly, and the light just flickers and doesnt stay on , shouldnt be a problem, or get the oil sending unit changed. the second problem car stallings sounds like either cam or crank position sensor. does the engine light come on. if so the code should tell you.
