Oil pump replacement is common at about 120/150k, ... 1999 Volkswagen Passat

I have a 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager. The oil light keeps coming on when the engine is at an idle, under 1000 rpms. If I am driving and the RPM's get up above 1000 the light will go off. I checked the oil level and it is full. I am guessing there is a problem with the oil pump? I also changed the oil sending unit.


Could also be wrong type of oil but worst case is the big end bearings inside the engine have gotten to big to maintain oil pressure and as you guessed the oil pump could be worn out, i would try changing oil pump first. ... 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager

The oil light in my 1985 Mazda 626 keeps coming on although there is plenty of oil in the engine. I checked and topped the oil up less than a week ago (before a road trip) and today the oil light came on. I checked the oil level and it was sitting on the full line on the dipstick. Are there any other reasons the oil light would come on and stay on?


The oil light will come on with low oil pressure (it is most likely a faulty / blocked sensor). This could be a simple sensor fault or blocked pick-up or a problem with your pump. I would get it checked out - if the oil pick-up needs to be replaced ... Mazda 626

Oil sensor The crankcase is full yet the oil light illuminates repeatedly & the bell keeps sounding. Where is the oil sensor located & can I get a location diagram in the engine compartment without buying a full manual?


The oil light on your car has nothing to do with oil level in the crankcase but rather oil pressure. The oil pressure switch/sensor is located on the rear of the engine block above the right axle I believe. Unless you have engine noise or suspect low ... 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, here is the translation of my previous question that i've sent in spanish previously. Hi, I have a 91 Toyota Previa which I am having issues with the Oil Level. It is taking the oil from the reservoir at the front and it is always getting it but the limit on the engine is more the Full line. It is like 1.5 Quarters more after the F line. Any idea of what could be the problem??? Does it has maybe some kind of check that keeps feeding the engine by getting the reservoir empty?

HOLDEN 1990 V8 STATESMAN, keeps breaking down, just before it does the oil light flickers on and off, sometimes it stays on for a few seconds then goes off, then my engine light comes on, not long after that it dies, sometimes if I leave the car it will start after half hour to a hour but is getting worse. I check the oil regulary and it says its full. Replaced- internal fuel pump/external, fuel filter, spark plugs/leads and coil pack. If you have any suggestions It would be much appreciated!


Your oil light is not a symptom. It's flickering because as the engine dies, the oil pressure is dropping. The engine's power pumps the oil, so this is pretty normal. The engine slows down, the pump will also, and there will be less pressure. \012 ... Chevrolet Beretta

Sudden/Rapid oil consumption - no external leaks, no blue smoke out the exhaust. It will run fine, and keep oil level on full, I keep a close eye on the level, then suddenly almost all the oil will disappear from the oil pan. There is no oil in the coolant.

I have a 92 Chrysler new yorker 3.3 engine 160K mileage. One morning, I stopped at a red light and the "check gauges" light came on during idle. I immediately noticed my oil pressure gauge lower than usual. Upon pulling away from the traffic light and accelerating, the light went out and the oil pressure came up to normal again. The oil pressure drops as the car idles, sometimes to the point of triggering the "check gauges" light then returns to normal during driving. The oil level is full and t
