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.

2001 tundra low oil pressure at idel engine warms up what does line on gauge repersent in lb how to fix or is it normal 90,000 miles obit always did since m


Well according to the owners manual, anything from low up to the last mark is normal. I think they mean anything from the low mark up half way is normal for idle.
If the gauge stays near L at idle and while driving, you could have low oil pressure or a gauge problem. A mechanic would check pressure with a mechanical gauge.
Normal for most engines is around 25-40 psi at idle and 30-60 psi when driving.

Oil light comes on when car is ideling


It could be a blocked oil filter, idle rpm's too low , incorrect viscosity of oil and failing oil pump. It may be also a faulty oil sender unit . What ever it is have a oil pressure check using a mechanical gauge first

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.

Good oil pressure while engine is cool after warmed up oil lite comes on at idel


9 times out of 10 this issue is a faulty transducer, they just fail over time. To test, pull the old sending unit (the transducer) and use an external "known good" pressure gauge. If pressure is okay during the warm condition, replace the transducer. Also, verify the correct idle speed.

Low oil pressure after engine warms up in 94 blazer with 4.3


I have a 99 blazer and ever since I have owned it, it reads lower in pressure when idling, but will go up too 40 while driving. This is normal for the vehicle. If the pressure gets real low, and stays low, it means its time for an oil change.

As long as the pressure goes up when you give it gas, it is fine.

Oil pressure gage


At idle, at operating temp is there any ticking from top end of engine? Are there any knocking noises brom bottom end?
If no noises, change oil and add some Marvel oil to clean out galleys. If that dosent work, change oil pressure sendingf unit. Also, if you have a mechanical oil pressure gauge, hook it up and take a direct reading. Oil pressure (in any vehicle) at idle should NEVER be less than 15psi. Generally in 4.0 jeep engines it's never less than 30, with a high reading at driving rpm of about 40-60! (but, you did not mention what engine you have)
