My oil light turned on in the cluster and i thought it was a sensor so I changed the oil pan sensor and left the shop,it stoped until the car warmed up and the sensor turned back on again during up or down hills the machanic told me before as he changed the sensor that have leaks somewhere from the oilpan but didn't tell me where, so I phoned him and he told me to come back he got in my car and reved untill the sensor went off and he told me I was loosing oil pressure and didn't tell me anything


Hello. Hopefully I can help clarify things for you. The sensor just senses the amount of pressure you have and lets you know if it's low. The oil pump pumps oil from the pan to higher parts of the engine via the valley (just under the intake manifo ... 2000 Audi A4

I have a 2000 Pontiac Firebird with 90,000 miles on it. I put in Gunk engine cleaner and ran it for 5 minutes as directed then drained the oil. I then did an oil change (Quaker State 10-30) and put in Lucas oil stabilzer (heavy duty). The oil pressure at idle is 90 psi and when driving it could go as high as 110 psi. I removed the oil pressure sensor and blew it out with compressed air and there was no change. If the sensor is faulty would it show high pressure? Do I have oil blockage or is the


The sensor can show high pressure when that is not the case, they fail high not low, take the sender out and plug in a mechanical guage to verify this, that is the only way to be 100% sure. ... Pontiac Firebird

I have a 2000 Chrysler Concorde and the Oil sensor light came on. it was down a quart of oil and it has only been 5000 miles since last oil change. Had oil change done and within 6 miles the oil sensor light came on. Whats up?


I'm betting that this is the 2.7L engine. If it is, you may have caught this in time. There is a very good possibility that the oil pump intake has become plugged with sludge. You will have to have the oil pan removed so that the pick-up can be cl ... 2000 Chrysler Concorde

Hi! I have a 2008 Honda Accord LX-P. I switched to synthetic oil at 6000 miles and according to the sticker next oil change must be at 11500 miles, but the oil life sensor came on at about 9700 miles... What should I do: change the oil or just reset the oil life sensor???

There is a sensor for both of them. I am not quite sure if they are related, on the same fuse. You can check the fuse box and see though. Sometimes the sending unit will get stuck or become defective and it will keep the light on, even if it is reset ... 2008 Ford Expedition

That is good oil pressure, just make sure if it's cold, you let it warm up a bit before putting it under a load.. if you notice a spike in pressure when you first start driving, just take it easy for a bit until the pressure normalizes.. too much pr ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

My BMW a 330Ci 2004, 155000 miles is getting the oil light on for last 5/6 months. My mechanic changed the oil level sensor and it still leaked. He changed the oring in the bottom of the oil pan. the leak stopped but just last week after a few weeks the engin oil light came back on. I do not know if the mechanic added more oil when he changed the oring because it was leaking still. So today I added oil because it was very low. I just hope that my car is not burning the oil there is no smoke an

I have a 2002 audi a8, and I am getting a yellow oil can with the word "sensor" under it on my warning display. The actual oil sensor (located on the bottom of the oil pan) was really leaking - last oil change I cleaned it and put in a new seal. Leak is substantially improved - but now I get the "oil sensor" warning for the first time - how can I check if the switch is bad, or is it "cleanable"? Could I alternately just disconnect it? (Where can I get a parts diagram for it, so I know how to

Oil light flashing on intermittently when at temperature and only at idle. Car 2008 Mitsubishi van Have had vehicle into Mitsubishi Agent and 2nd mechanic who all say vehicle in very good condition (55,000 kms) Have had oil changed, sensor changed, oil pump tested, motor flushed all to no avail. Engine not burning any oil. Have filled oil to above oil level - no difference. Using 10W 40 oil. Can we use 10W 50 without damaging motor? What else could it be?


Well technically you should be using a 10W-30 with a vehicle like that unless it calls for a heavier grade. If the oil level is good (don't overfill it otherwise it can cause the light to go off) check the oil pressure switch and the oil sender unit. ... Mitsubishi Cargo

I am having a problem with high oil pressure on my 1996 vw cabrio. The pressure is 80 on 2000rpm's and the mechanic has changed out my oil pump 2 times, the sensors have been replaced. the oil has been changed, filter replaced? Is the gauges for reading the vw different those gauges to read regular american cars. He has put in thin oil to try to fix this.


That is completly normal, I think the mechanic is pulling your leg. yes the VW gages read in bars and you have about 4 bars witch is normal. The oil system has a over pressure dump which dumps back to the sump. I wouldnt worry about the pressure but ... Volkswagen Cabrio
