If the low oil pressure did not affect your engine-I hope so- you only need to change oil pump and don't try to start engine before that, hope that this help you.

2004 Ford explorer engine knocking


take it to an accredited service shop that has experience on your make of engine and have a proper diagnosis done and quote
it is possible that there is a spinning main bearing and the test is a oil pressure test using a mechanical gauge
some times it spins , low oil pressure -knocking other times it stops and the oil pressure goes back up , knocking stops
should I be correct , normally it can be repaired in car by removing the sump and replacing that bearing shell, of the shaft is not damaged
i would steer away from a new engine or suggestions of a blown engine but it could be serious

Check the oil pressure manually with a gauge. Make sure you have oil pressure. Perhaps you need a new oil pump, or new lifters. Get a professional opinion from a non interested party. Save money, get a diagnosis.

Low oil pressure toyota camry


Is this high mileage vehicle? If so, I doubt changing oil pump will help, you may need engine overhaul?
Sometimes, you use an analog pressure gage in place of the oil pressure sending unit, to read actual oil pressure. My info says at idle, oil pressure 4.3 psi or more. At 3000 rpms, it says 43--78 psi.

Oil pressure indicator lamp illuminates intermittently


1. check oil level now! If low, add as needed, and keep checking regularly.
2. If level is OK, check oil pressure switch (or sending unit), and the connections at the switch.
3. Have the oil pressure measured by a good mechanic. If the pressure is good, it means that the problem lies somewhere in the pressure sensor or indicator circuit. If the pressure is low, there is a problem in the engine - either a clogged oil filter, bad oil pump, or blockage within the engine.

How to reset oil light on dash of 01 1.4 golf


Oil lights do not reset.

Your Golf either has low oil level/pressure or the oil pressure sending unit/wiring is bad.

You need to immediately check your engine oil level. The instructions are in your manual.

If the oil level is low, DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR! YOU WILL DAMAGE THE ENGINE! Add oil as instructed in your manual and the light should go out within 20 seconds or so after you start your car. You will then need to check for leaks and/or find out why your oil was gone.

If the oil level is normal, you need to get the car to a mechanic to see if the problem is the sending unit or an actual oil pressure problem. Since at this point you cannot be certain, I recommend that you have the car towed to avoid engine damage that will happen if your oil pressure is indeed low.

The Mechanic needs to verify it the oil pump system is working! He needs to take out the oil pressure sensor and install a Gauge to read the actual oil pressure. Typical oil pressure at idle would be "about 40PSI, 60PSI when running at highway speeds. (3-4bar). if he doesn't get a pressure reading then something is wrong in the oil system assembly. Do not run the engine if there is low or no pressure, you will ruin whatever it is that the mechanic "fixed" inside the engine. Not much more help i can give you without more details on what was "fixed" inside the engine. Good luck, Worm1855

If you have zero oil pressure thats a BAD sign, first have a mechanic check what the engines actual oil pressures are.

I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

2001 a4, oil pressure light alarm.


Your mechanic is yanking your chain. (or you mis-understanding.)

Oil pressure light does not have to be "reset." There may be CODES that need to be reset but they would turn on the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. (I think, on your car, this is picture of engine with a check mark.) If the Check Engine Light (CEL) is flashing, it means you have a serious engine problem and should NOT be driving the car without finding the reason for the light. (Around here, many auto parts store will "pull the codes" for free.)

Oil pressure light could mean you are low on oil, have a bad sensor, wire or even a oil pump. The oil pump is inside the engine.
