Need to check the pressure with a manual gauge,remove oil sender and check the pressure there,if it doesn't have 30-40 psi,it's trouble.

Low oil pressure can be from a restriction in the filter, a weak oil pump or excess clearnance between the crankshaft, camshaft, main and rod bearings. Low oil pressure when the engine has adequate oil means the engine is in need of at least a pump. It may even need an overhaul. My question would be does it run OK not leak or smoke and have good fuel economy. The best case if everything is running fine is that the sending unit is defective.

Oil pressure sensor, or most likely, oil level sensor, either sensors, wires, or connections.

My 2007 Buick 3.9 liter oil light comes on and off. ..stays on for a while then goes back out. Checked the oil level all good. I did recently change the oil to GTX 5w30 extended milage oil. Any idea


The oil light comes on when the oil pressure sensor detects low oil pressure. The amount of oil has little to with it, although very low oil levels can cause loss of oil pressure. The best thing to do is to have the engine's oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge to ensure that the oil pressure is sufficient at all operating speed and temperatures. If the oil light is still flashing on and off and there is no indication of low oil pressure by the gauge, then replacement of the oil pressure sensor is recommended.

My check engine light is on in my 95 honda accord ex and the obd1 gives a oil pressure code what should I do?


The first thing you should do is have your oil pressure checked with a gauge. You want to be sure that your pressure is not actually low. The chances are good that you just have a sensor or wiring problem, but you want to make sure that the pressure is not a problem. Any good repair shop can check it. Or you can buy a gauge at an auto parts store and check it yourself.

Hi. This issue has several causes, but the oil light indicator is a strong sign of low pressure in the engine. This will cause the engine lubrication rate to drop, thus, producing a illuminated oil light, and erratic Oil pressure readings. The necessary actions are to have a manual oil pressure test ran on this engine, asap. When running a manual oil pressure test, you will discover if the true oil pressure is low, or normal. If the test proves that the oil pressure is, indeed, low, this will confirm that the Oil pump is suspect.

Now, if the true readings given during the manual oil pressure test are indicating that the pressure is normal, this will be the result of a failed sending unit(oil pressure switch). Although the oil pressure is suspect, this is not your only issue here. There seems to be a abnormal compression rate, present. This is causing the rough idle, and erratic RPMs. I recommend to administer a engine block compression test, as well. This test will discover if , indeed, there are issues within the cylinder heads, and block structure, such as a worn head gasket, cylinder wall issues, and cracked block. Normally, these issue will send signs, like white, or gray smoke out the tail pipe, or discolored oil. It will, also, promote erratic RPM ratings, and a rough idle. Have the oil pressure test, and engine block compression test ran, asap.

Once the test are administered, you will be able to isolate the actual problem areas, more accurately. Check the spark plug wire sets, and ignition assembly for faults, also.

The oil light keeps coming on but there is oil in the engine. then the temp needle has moved to hot ange the car is hesitating to start up


oil light tells you that the pressure from the oil pump is inadequate, not that there is no oil in the engine. usually when the oil pressure is low, the amount of oil is also low, however on an old engine the pump can fail and/or the sensor unit can fail both of which will cause the oil light to be on regardless of the amount of oil in the engine.

The oil lights stays on in my 1994 honda accord ex


This is a matter that you should pay immediate attention to.
The oil light can indicate low oil level in your engine, or low oil pressure. Both can be fatal to your engine.

Check your oil level first.
Look for evidence of leaking oil (possinility a loose oil filter)
The oil pressure sending unit or connections could also be causing the problem

Oil light blinking


there is always the possibility that you really have low oil pressure when you get this light, at idle the engines oil pump produces the least pressure and if there are problems then that is when it shows up, so have the oil pressure tested by a shop with a mechanical test gage, if the oil pressure is within spec then replace the oil pressure light sending unit on the engine, I don't recommend you drive this until u are sure of the pressure, u can SEVERELY damage the engine is the pressure is really low.

Oil indicator light keeps flashing and eventually sounds a beeping alarm. Only thing is there is the correct amount of oil in the car. Been to garage and they checked level. Is this simply a switch problem...


The only way to tell for sure is to temporarily install a mechanical pressure gauge and read the actual pressure. That will determine the next course of action--replace the pressure sensor/switch, or recommend remedial action within the engine itself (worn bearings, worn oil pump, or plugged intake screen). Hope this helps!

this one is difficult to diagnose without putting a oil pressure gauge on the engine to check oil pressure ,hopefully ??its just the switch but ??? ...If oil pressure is low then change the oil and filter and put in a can of STP oil treatment and trade it in quick
