OIL LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON

1 Answer

255

when that light comes on it means oil pressure not oil level or dirty oil. either your oil pump is going out or the sensor is going bad. mine did this a few years ago and it was the sensor. you can run a manual oil gauge and see what your pressures are running at or you can start the car pop the hood remove oil filler cap and use a flashlight to look in the hole and see if you can see oil spraying around. manual guage is your best bet since its a more accurate test. dont ignore it though if the pump is bad it can eventually drop low enough so no oil is moving and cause the engine to seize. fingers crossed its a sensor. let me know.
