You may have an oil reset button or a method for reseting the light itself via the ignition and pedals depending on your year make and model.

I have a 2015 volkswagon passat. And the low oil light keeps coming on and I checked the oil yesterday and the light went off and came back on today. Would they be a bad sensor or something?


It is not a worry that the oil light comes on when hot, at idle, but it should go off as soon as revs begin to rise.

If you are driving in a very hot climate, such as in central Australia right now, you could go to one grade thicker oil, such as 20W-50 instead of 10W-40.

If you are concerned about this, have a mechanic replace the oil pressure sender with a gauge, to show pressure at various revs. It should be approx 10 psi per 1000 revs.

If well below this it shows your engine main bearings are worn, the oil pump is worn , or the oil pump overpressure relief spring is weak.

I have a dodge 1.8L. the oil ligh flashes when it running and my foot is on the accelerator, but comes off when it idles on its own.


It is not a big worry if the oil light comes on at low idle, but it should go off as soon as the revs rise a bit. I'd recommend

- change the oil AND FILTER with the correct grade, to the correct level.
- ask a mechanic to temprarily replace the oil pressure sender with an oil pressure gauge, and with the engine HOT, rev the engine up and down to see what pressure there is. You should have roughly 10 psi per 1000 RPM.

If the pressure is very low, ask the mechanic to check the oil pump and engine bearings. If you are not burning oil with lots of blue smoke from the exhaust, it is unlikely the bearings are worn.

Oil light keeps comeing on ???


Remove the electric sender and install mechanical oil gauge to check that you have proper oil pressure. Bet ya the main bearings are not fitted correctly or the engine wasn't cleaned during overhaul and now bearings are trashed.

Oil warning light came on while driving home, then started flickering on / off for rest of journey 2mls. changed oil filter and oil used recomended Mobil 0 / 30. oil light went out on starting but would...


Oil light at idle is a sign of wear. If it only happens at low revs and this is an old car, I wouldn't fix it unless it got worse. If it's a newer car, get a new oil pump.

Oil Pressure Light Comes On after 10 min of Driving


You may not have put the right amount of oil in your car, your oil pressure sensor could be faulty, or you may have a leak.

By revving your engine, you're increasing the pressure and thus turning off the light and making the sensor think that it's at the correct pressure.

I had the same problem with my 2003 Lancer OZ. The oil level and pressure were ok. Car was fine with no light when starting. After 10 to 15 mins of driving it would come on when I was stopped. It would go away when I pressed accelerator. Try replacing the Oil Sending Unit. It's about $10 and easy to swap. That was my problem.
