This problem could be a couple of different things. There is a sensor on the engine that detects oil pressure. If the pressure gets low enough it will trip the oil light. It could be a fault with the sensor and it is sensing that the oil pressure is low and it actually is not.
It could be that the sensor is good and you actually have low oil pressure. If the oil pressure is actually low a few things that could cause this are 1: You have low oil level or improper grade of oil in the engine. 2: Mechanical issue inside the engine. Example, Bad oil pump or oil pump drive, a faulty oil pickup, or bottom end issues like a spun or bad crankshaft bearing.

Either way I would investigate the problem before I ran the engine any more.

I have a 1998 4wd automatic toyota 4runner and it won't start. The engine turns but won't "ignite" the engine light and A/T oil temp light appear on dashboard. any suggestions on what to check


Hi Nikki, What oil was low? Was it engine oil or gear box oil? Did the engine overheat? what exactly happened? Did you hear any strange noises when the engine stopped? Was the vehicle towed or was it on the back of a recovery vehicle? If it was towed, at what speed and over what distance? What engine is fitted? Is it petrol or diesel powered? Give as many details as possible to help us help you. Regards John

How to reset the change oil light on 2001 chevrolet suburban LS


Turn the ignition key to on position, but do not start the vehicle.
Wait for the "change oil light" to come on
Tap the throttle pedal three times quickly
Wait for the light to flash several times, then go out.
Start the car and drive and it won't come back on.

It usually works the first time, but repeat if light stays on.

Don't try start the engine when the oil light turn on, it would harm your piston, camshaft and crankshaft
It should be the oil pump has broken and need to replace, tow your car to the nearest service center

Have a 95 chevy lumina, the oil light came on and the engine died. Added oil, now car will not start.


How long was the oil light on before the engine died? Did you hear any noises coming from the engine before it died? If the oil light was on for a while and you were still driving on it, the engine could have seized up which would explain why it won't start back up. Do you know why the oil light came on? Do you have an oil leak that you're aware of or have you seen blue smoke coming out of your tailpipe while driving? There are a lot of different scenarios that could have happened with this.
