Have you checked your oil level? This light indicates either an oil level problem or an oil pressure problem.

Assuming your oil level is full, it sounds like you've got a faulty oil pressure switch which determines when to trigger the oil light.

    It could also be burnt oil in the base pan thats eventually being sucked up in the strainer and clogging it. 90ish Hondas, with infrequent servicing are prone to gunk buildup in the oil pan, because the shield is so effective it doesnt allow a lot of gunk to drop into the bottom of the pan, instead it accumulates on the lip and gradually mixes up with new oil during every change

Red warning light staying on


That can be a small problem like a loose wire or a sensor that is out.. sometimes if a warning bulb is out on dash it will send a signal to the engine light to illuminate.. if its blinking that isa major problem.. sometimes even getting oil changed or leaving a gas cap open or broken can cause the llightto go off. Is there any symptoms associated with the blinking light?

I have a 2007 Fiat Doblo 1.3 diesel. When I start the engine, hot or cold, the oil warning light stays on but goes out after about a minute. I suspect a lazy switch but lately the warning light has come on...


there is 2 settings on the oil light, one is, is there oil. other setting is is the oil passing the sensor, if the sensor is playing up it could be the sensor or the oil is not circulating fast enough. this could be the pump or the oil, can sometimes do this after an oil change and deposits are blocking the oil flow.

Check the linkage under the vehicle that goes from your shift lever to a rod that then goes to the transmission lever. Sometimes a coupling will come loose. Simple return it to its' original position and re-tighten. Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

At red light engine seems like it wants to cut off.


try changing your pcv valve. if its dirty it may be causing the shuttering. as for the check engine light going on and off, you may have a bad gas cap. if the cap is faulty it will cause the engine light to come on at times because of a poor air to fuel ratio.

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery


Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
