oil light alternates from blinking to staying on steady

Asked by Aug 24, 2015 at 10:30 PM about the 2003 Hyundai Accent GL 2-Door Hatchback FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I keep checking the oil and it is full--I do think I may have put too much in before all this
happened and I checked my oil and found it down 1/2 qt--could it be from too much oil?

It could be a bad oil pressure light switch or a worn out engine, you might consider having an oil pressure test ran on the engine, that way you will know for sure.

that do sound like oil pressure issue, do what tennisshoe said above, oil pressure lost will damage the vehicle.

Thanks, is getting my oil pressure checked something autozone can do, otherwise what would most cost efficient way be, to check that- is there a cheap gauge I can buy to do it myself?

Yes, autozone won't do it but you can buy an aftermarket oil pressure gauge and install it yourself, just follow the directions on how to install it. you can do it temporary, or buy a bracket and route it inside for a more permanent installation.

Fernando, it's telling you there is oil pressure loss, engine damage is sure to occur, do not drive, either have to towed to a shop to get it checked out or have one of those "we come to you" moblie repair guys and have it checked, hopefully it is not too late
