Change your oil pressure sender switch. It should fix the problem. If it does not you will need to replace the oil pump.

My 89 honda accord oil light comes on when engine is warmed up and stays on and idles high


Could be more than one problem.
The oil light staying on when the engine is warmed up could be a problem with the oil pump or engine bearings.
Its possible the switch for the light is faulty.
You can replace the switch or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge at a shop.
The high idle could be several things, but I would be more concerned with the oil light.

After vehicle has warmed, the oil light comes on under 1100 rpms . rev the engine the light goes off


You can't trust the light sensor, so you need to get a mechanical gauge. A cheap capillary tube one is only $10.
You should also change oil.
If the engine has over 100,000 miles, you could consider 20W-50 oil.
You could also have a problem with fuel or ignition, causing oil dillution.
Does it look too thin or smell like gas?
It could also be the oil pump is bad, but that is not normally worth trying.
The number of miles on the engine would help.
But low idle oil pressure is not that important.

OIL LIGHT ON AND OFF AFTER ENGINE WARM UP ENGINE KNOCKS AFTER WARM UP 20W50 OIL IN NOW OIL IS NOT LOW.B WHEN ENGINE IS FIRST STARTED RUNS LIKE A DREAM THEN STARTS MAKING NOISE AND OIL LIGHT COME ON AT IDLE...


First of all , change your oil pressure sender . It should be easy to do and relatively inexpensive. See if that fixes the oil light going on and off. If the light stays on after that , turn off the bike and replace the oil pump. If you have a bad oil pump and continued to drive the bike , you may have caused serious damage to the motor and may end up having to disassemble the engine to determine the cause of the knock.

2000 dodge intrepid 3.2 l engine noise and oil light on


Hi! May I ask when was your last engine oil change? Maybe now is the time. When the oil is burnt it makes annoying noise coming from the engine plus a poor performance can be expected. I suggest that you have an oil change and please do check on the radiator fan. If the fan motor is weak it makes the engine hot and run sluggish. Please write back and tell me how it goes. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Low Oil Pressure on 1992 Chevy 1500 Pickup Truck


Hi! The problem you are outlining is very similar to the Rover V8 (Buick engine). We Brit's are used to the low oil pressure when warm. I presume a complete oil change engine flushed with new replacement filter has been carried out? Maybe a top quality synthetic oil with additive may help. You may take it a little further and replace the oil pump with an after market performance up rated one. If you really are worried about low oil pressure damage whilst in low rev's try Molybnenum Disulphide an oil additive which really reduces friction metal to metal wear particulary in the situation you are describing.
That's the best I can suggest at this moment.
Good Luck! and Happy New Year!
