I'm assuming you have a low oil pressure indicator on the dash. Have you checked the oil level? If it is at correct level, it is possible the oil pressure sender/switch isn't reading the pressure properly. Also it is possible that bearings in the engine are worn out, or that the oil pump isn't working properly. If you don't have a pressure gauge to screw into the engine where the switch is, I would start by replacing the oil pressure switch.

I have a 2005 Mercury Sable, it shows the oil is full on the dipstick but the low oil pressure light has come on twice, what could it be?


Low oil pressure has little to do with oil level. The best is to take it to a service agent to have the oil pressure checked. It is very possible that you have a faulty pressure switch, and just changing the switch will solve the problem, but if you have an oil pump problem, causing low pressure, you have a major problem. Have it checked.

2005 grand Prix oil pressure light an dinging comes on


1. Check your oil level. If oil level is not ok, correct oil level and find out why oil level was low and correct the problem. (Leaks, bad PCV, Burning oil due to severe engine wear, nobody has bothered to check it for the last 3000 miles, WAY overdue for an oil change, etc.) If oil level is ok, proceed to next step.

2. Remove the oil pressure sensor and install a manual oil pressure gauge. Run engine to verify low oil pressure. If gauge shows that the oil pressure is low, overhaul or replace engine. If oil pressure is ok, replace oil pressure sending unit and retest.

Oil light keeps coming on


1992 ford explorer with the oil light coming on, this can be due to a bad switch, this switch is called the oil pressure switch and is located near the oil filter area, this would be the cheapest way to go first and if the light still comes on then you will need to have a pressure gauge hooked to where the switch goes and the gauge will tell you if its really low on oil pressure and if it is then this may be due to worn engine bearings or weak oil pump, i will tell you i have not seen an explorer with low oil pressure just needing a oil pump, most of the time it is time for another engine. what =i have seen is alot of them with bad oil pressure switches that were making the oil light come on . hope this is helpful, good luck.

SOMETIMES OIL PRESSURE LOW LIGHT COMES ON AND IT SMELLS HOT BUT OIL LEVEL IS GOOD


at the best, the oil pressure switch is leaking oil on the exhaust, if not ,there may be trouble, have a shop check the switch.

Engine wont start. oil pressure low warning when turn key.


I assume you check your oil, at least once every month, on a nice
sunny saturday morning
What else can you add,I sense there is more leading up
to this!
Is the battery low or dead?
If the engine is not running and the key is on,you get lots
of lights on the dash until it starts

1996 Explorer 4wd sport - oil pressure


I would use 10W-30W, but that should not make the oil pressure read low, have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical test guage, if it tests within normal range then start by replacing the oil pressure sending unit.
