Low Oil light at idle

I found out that the oil light on the 2007 FSR I'm looking at comes on at idle. The owner said that there is some fix that has to do with the clutch cover?! Can someone tell me about this problem

And whether it may have affected the longevity of the motor?All bikes in Australia had a recall for the clutch covers. If the crank seal in the clutch cover is faulty it loses oil pressure. Some times it could be just a faulty switch. You will se that Gas Gas fixed this on the 08 bikes by removing the switch.,

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.

You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

Low hot idlel oil. Thicker oil?? It burns no oil 90000 miles

You only use the oil recommended, when it was new

I would guess 5W-30 whatever is in the owners manual
or on the engine somewhere NEVER anything heavier
on a V6 since 1980

Different weight oil, will not fix a mechanical issue or
your engine idle

I don't see an actual question there

Low idle? That is the only issue?

How do you know what issue your having ?

You need to look at scan tool data

Oil light coming on when clutch engaged

idle is too low?
look at the tachometer. What RPM is it? 800 ok, 300 bad.
the silly switch comes on at 3 to 5psi, (bad bad horror that)
if the light comes on, the oil pressure is horribly low.
running 5w oil?
low rpm, or wrong oil., or bad news.

if rpm too low, fix that first.

2007 chevy uplander ls minivan, low oil pressure warning light and bell comes on and off after 20 minutes of driving

Since you do not state whether you checked the oil and what the condition and level it was, that is important to know for advise to be given.

But unfortunantly, what you describe is some of the indications of a blown head gasket. Did you have white smoke coming out of the exhaust? Is there any indication of water on your dipstick? Is there a oily slim on the top of your antifreeze in the radiator overflow?

You have answered your own question. You idle is too low. Check all hoses, and gaskets for leaks.

My oil light with a little wrench beside it came on this morning, I have a 2007 chevy trailblazer and I just had a oil change 1 month ago

If the service light is on in your TrailBlazer, open the door, turn the key to ignition position and push the accelerator pedal 5 times, the service light will flash. flash your high beams and you're done.

The oil pressure light if turnning on and off at low idle.

Please ignore this light. Or you can take your car for a scan so it could be fitted well to give accurate indications.

Low Oil pressure light in idle at stop

Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.

Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.
