Low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8


Low pressure when at idle, after the engine has warmed up and the oil has thinned, indicates that the oil pump is worn and needs to be replaced.

Perkins generator stop and indicate low oil pressure?


If the oil level is correct then you might be up for an oil pump. Some engines have an automatic cut-out for low oil pressure or high temperature as a safety mechanism to protect the engine from massive damage.

Where can i find the low oil alert module ?


Yes , if there is an errror on the oil pressure switch or a low oil level then the engine will not be allowed to turn in. Check and refill oil, check the oil pressure switch , it can be clogged and so might not work.

Why is showing low oil pressure and stop engine on dash board i have low oil pressure and it reads stop engine


Check your oil. If it is low, top it off and see if the light goes out. If your oil is full, have your oil pressure checked.

Getting a "Low Oil Pressure" message on the dash board.."Turn off engine" any ideas of what the problem might be?


Hi. This issue has several causes, but the oil light indicator is a strong sign of low pressure in the engine. This will cause the engine lubrication rate to drop, thus, producing a illuminated oil light, and erratic Oil pressure readings. The necessary actions are to have a manual oil pressure test ran on this engine, asap. When running a manual oil pressure test, you will discover if the true oil pressure is low, or normal. If the test proves that the oil pressure is, indeed, low, this will confirm that the Oil pump is suspect.

Now, if the true readings given during the manual oil pressure test are indicating that the pressure is normal, this will be the result of a failed sending unit(oil pressure switch).

DON'T DRIVE ANOTHER MILE !!!! The 1.8 is known for a sludge buildup in the engine. This is the exact symptem that shows its head. The car HAS to be TOWED to a garage before you cause any further damage. Do a google search, "vw 1.8 sludge", and see what comes up...

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance
