Oil light

Asked by Jun 04, 2017 at 10:03 PM about the 2006 Hummer H3 4dr SUV 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 06 hummer h3 is marking the oil light.
It usually doesn't turn on until the engine has been
running a while and warmed up. I've noticed it only
comes on when I come to a complete stop and
need to accelerate again but only on take off. I let
off the accelerator and the light goes off and stays
off once I'm in second gear I suppose (it's an
automatic) I recently changed the oil. I think it's just
low oil pressure. I constantly check for oil leaks and
if the engine burns oil but nothing. The oil is there.
Could it be a faulty sensor? Perhaps the oil pump?
It's running on 5w-30 maybe thicker oil? I need to
get to the bottom of this.

More and likely a bad oil pressure switch. I would still check with a oil pressure gauge to be sure.

MY 08 hummer h3 also has this problem, can you solve it? I already changed the oil I did a cleaning in the carter and I changed the oil pressure valve
