what would cause oil light to come on at 2800 mile interval on 2003 toyota camry

Asked by Aug 20, 2012 at 09:32 PM about the 2003 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Oil change is done every 5,000 miles; however, the last year or so, the oil light is coming on before 5000 miles
when I brake and sometimes making left turns   When the light comes, there seems to be a surging type noise in
the engine.  Noise goes away after oil change.  Any idea what would cause this, please?

Is your oil level ok at the 2800 mile mark? I suspect it is low at that mileage causing the surging noises. Check for leaks.
