Quite a few of these vans had issues with the instrument panel cluster causing this problem. There is an updated program to recalibrate the cluster to not set the low oil pressure light on. Go to a GM dealer and have them reprogram the IPC.

2002 olds silhouette. Got oil changed.In minutes oil pressure light. SHop says sensure problem don't worry. 50 miles and engine loudly ticking, light back. Is my engine toast??


How many miles on engine? How often do you change oil? Used this shop before? Used same type of oil always? Best would be to install mechanical pressure gauge to see what is going on.

Oil light comes on and is dinging.


The oil light has nothing to do will oil level, but rather oil PRESSURE. If the engine oil is full and there is no rattling or banging noises in the engine, chances are the oil pressure sending unit is bad. If noises accompany the light, then shut down the engine and troubleshooting the engines internal lubrication system.

Low engine oil light on after fresh oil change


I am going to assume you have checked the oil level to make sure the engine has enough oil.
If it really is a warning light for low oil it could be that the shop knocked the wire off the sensor.
If it is the warning light for low oil pressure, it could be the sensor or you could really have low oil pressure and still have plenty of oil.

I own a 2000 Chyrsler Voyager 3.3 liter-V6 which is just about to roll on 120k miles. Two weeks ago my oil light would come on and ding repeatedly when I came to a stop at random times. I got an oil change...


Two possibilities, either you have a bad oil sending switch or you may have an oil pump that has worn out. I would try to replace the oil pressure sensor first, it's the easiest and cheapest.
