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.

My low oil pressure light comes on at low idle on my 2005 Ford Freestyle. Could the switch be bad?


Yes the switch could be bad but the engine ciould also be low on oil or the oil pump could be going bad. The plan would be to check and top up the oil if necessary. If it still does it then have a mechanical oil pressure guage put in and get an acutual reading. This will tell you if it's the switch or the oil pump.

Oil light comes on when idling oil level is good


faulty oil pressure switch (cheap), worn oil pump (not pumping enough oil at low revs) but most likely worn shells or crankshaft (allows oil to pass too quickly lowering oil pressure - just not noticable when the engine is reving 'cos there's a lot more oil bieng shifted by the pump)

Oil light comes on when braking


Your oil pump is failing.... when your engine rpm drops (when stopping) the pump and engine rpm drop to idle..(light comes on). when you accelerate (rpm's increase) the pumps start working harder and the light goes off.... I am TRULY surprised the dealer(who did you see at the dealer???) did not know this,... THIS IS BASIC STUFF!! ... I mean 090 level mechanics...

Get the oil pump replaced immediately!!!!

2005 Ford Escape, 6-cylinder - When at idle, approx. 800 rpm, the oil light comes on. If I increase the rpms the light goes off. It does not come on while driving.


The light appears because the oil pressure generated by the pump is below the limit. If the light appears only at idle and the level of the oil in the carter is good then the oil pump is worn out and it's starting to show it. You must replace the pump.
For that the engine will have to be taken off the car and that is a job for a service shop - take your car to one.

Oil light flickers at idle in gear 1983 cadillac devill 4.1


This is because the oil pump is not pumping enough oil. It is either very low on oil, or the oil pump is going out. The light comes on when the oil pressure drops below 5 psi. This is very low. It should run about 25-30 psi at an idle.

Car oil light is coming on when i brake. no unusely sound in the car or motor sound also the service engine soon light has been coming on


Well i hope its not the oil pump because the oil pump works with the speed of the engine when it turns and as you know when the engine turns fast the oil pump turns fast too and the more you accelerate the faster the oil pump turns, that means there is more pressure of the oil to go up top the engine and when the engine idles, The pump turns slowly, and doesnt pump enough oil up top the engine and the oil pressure switch dosent detect any oil passing by then it send a message that the pressure is low. So check your oil pressure during idle. Good luck Bro

95 Softail oil light comes on when it's warm only at idle.


the only way to check the oil pressure switch is to remove it and replace it, or test with a analog guage, if the pressure at idle is 5psi or higher at idle just replace the switch, the switch is not real percise and harleys have a dry sump oil system, and the pump is a g-rotor style dry sump pump at idle the engine might have 5-15lbs of pressure when warm and higher with engine revs you didnt say what weight oil you are running it could be to light of a viscosity 10-50, use a heaver weight oil 20-50 or like i use in my bike (2002 FLHTCU w/sidecar) straight 60wt hopes this helps
