Shouldn't be a major concern if it promptly increases as you increase rpm. The sensor may be a little insensitive (lol).

SOURCE: no oil pressure at idle

Beings it's just at idle, I'm tending to believe it's either the wrong weight of oil, or a bad oil pressure sending unit.

Here's how to do a quick check.
With engine idling, remove oil tank cap, shine a flashlight down the hole, and see it you can see the oil swirling like oil is being pumped back into the oil tank.

If oil IS returning to the oil tank at idle, then you have oil pressure.

Try a new sending unit.

Engine oil light on at idel goes off when driving comes on at stops


Check oil level on dipstick. Check for loose connection on oil pressure sender unit. Have the oil pressure checked using a master gauge.

2006 Kia Optima oil light flashes sometimes when Ideling. Don't know what to do.


When the oil lamp lights, it means that your oil pump is not giving the right pressure or it is not working, If it only happens during idling, it indicates that the pump is about to wear and needs servicing, If its intermittent, it may just be a loose wire connection to the sender or a defective sending unit. Try to replace first the oil pressure sending unit.

How to find and fix oil pressure on a 95 ford windstar


Start out by determining that oil pressure is really the problem. Rent or buy an oil pressure gauge set or if your not working on cars everyday you can by an add on oil pressure gauge to connect and see the real oil pressure the fords gaugesas the cars and trucks get older the gauges fail and lie about the pressure. Once you know that the idel pressure is less than 15 LBs. warmered up you need to find the reason. Oil that is old or diluted with gas or antifreeze may not produce very much pressure so before going to the troble of removeing the oil pan to find bad things you might not be able to pay for change the oil and see if the pressure is high enough if it is you need to get the drained oil checked to see what it's failure is as the new oil may also fail quickly unless the problem is found and fixed, Cars that are driven short distance and not often are likly to contaninate the oil quickly, so they need to be changed more often and not by the miles but the time the oil is in the engine. Cars that are driven to full operating temperture on a regular basics, won't have this problem. Cars that don't warm up because the therostate does'nt close all the way so the temperture comes up quickly and is heald at the right temperture will fail the oil too.

OIL PRESSURE GAUGE


I would start by replacing the oil pressure sensor. If that doesn't fix the problem, replace the oil pump. Its possible that the oil ports are partially clogged. If replacing sensor and pump do not fix the problem, you may want to try to flush the engine with an approved cleaner
