My Oil Light came on and it is full of oil is it the Oil Pump and Oil Sending Unit for a 1997 Chevy L:umina


If your oil sending unit is seeping oil then I would change that first. You could get an after market pressure gauge and install it were the sending unit goes, that would tell you if its the pump.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport hard to start after its warm and fluctuating oil pressure


Hi there:
It sounds like it could be oil pressure sending unit. I would check the connection on the sending unit. Below are the procedures for checking the sending unit, If it checks out good I would have a mechanical gauge set up to measure the pressure.

TESTINGTo test the normally closed oil lamp circuit, disengage the locking connector and measure the resistance between the switch terminal (terminal for the wire to the warning lamp) and the metal housing. The ohmmeter should read 0 ohms.To test the sending unit, measure the resistance between the sending unit terminal and the metal housing. The ohmmeter should read an open circuit (infinite resistance).Start the engine.Once again, test each terminal against the metal housing:The oil switch terminal-to-housing circuit should read an open circuit if there is oil pressure present.The sending unit-to-housing circuit should read between 15-80 ohms, depending on the engine speed, oil temperature and oil viscosity.To test the oil pressure sender only, rev the engine and watch the ohms reading, which should fluctuate slightly (within the range of 15-80 ohms) as rpm increases.If the above results were not obtained, replace the sending unit/switch with a new one.

Hope helps.

This problem is caused by a defective oil pressure sending unit on the engine in most cases. The oil pressure sending unit is located on the oil filter adapter housing on the front of the engine. It is hidden a bit behind the front engine mount bracket.

These sending units are known to fail, a replacement is about $25. I had a Bonneville that did the same thing. The only real way to test it is to remove the electronic sending unit and test it with a manual gauge. In my case I had 40 psi of oil pressure with the manual gauge but the dash would read 5-10psi.

Ford Falcon 1997 oil light sometimes comes on for a couple of minutes. Checked oil, and all good!


In order to troubleshoot this problem correctly,you need to clean the motor first.

An intermittent/shorting oil sending unit is the source of the problem.

You need to make sure it's not an oil leak into the oil sending unit first.


After you clean the motor then look for oil leak.


Also make sure the wire from the oil sending unit wire is not touching the engine block.


Oil sending unit is cheap. It's an easy job.


Change it at your next oil change.
