Check the oil level in the sump. Ensure that the idle RPM is at 750rpm or above up to 1000rpm. Check for the correct grade of oil in the engine for you atmospheric temperature.

SOURCE: The oil pressure light if turnning on and off at low idle.

Please ignore this light. Or you can take your car for a scan so it could be fitted well to give accurate indications.

Sounds like a problem with a weak sensor and the computer. You need to get your mechanic to code the car as to rule out any problems with the computer or the sensors. Your car is about the right year for those sensors to start getting weak. When the computer reads those sensors that then sets things. So if the sensor is getting weak, it would not be reading things right so your car would be not running so good. I would be looking at the Throttle Position Sensor. If after coding the car and nothing show up there. I would be checking for a vacuum leak they will often cause this problem. And one more thing when is the last time you did a good tune up on the car? Stark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor? Air filter might be something to look into too. I hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: White smoke from tailpipe and low oil pressure

How's the anti-freeze doing? Usually when you see white smoke coming out the tailpipe it's because you are getting anti-freeze in the exhaust somehow. Try to sniff it a little does smell like anti-freeze, or oil? I don't know why the oil pressure would be low unless you are getting anti-freeze in the oil. Does the oil look milky, knda like chocolate milk? The low oil pressure could also be a faulty gauge, you may want to have a mechanic put a mechanical gauge on the car for test purposes.

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.


You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

Oil pressure problem


in a shop we ignore the dash gauges and use REAL gauges.
we attach a real gauge to the sender port. on engine block.
and read the true pressure.
the lamp on most cars go on at 3 to 5psi.
this is catastrophic failure. that low.

my guess, is you let oil drop and you wrecked bearings.
but let the real gauge prove that , dont guess.

Oil pressure drop with engine getting hot


You'll want to remove the electrical oil pressure gauge and check the oil pressure with a manual gauge to verify low oil pressure. If the oil pressure tests good with a manual gauge, then you either have a faulty oil pressure sender, or gauge in the dash (I rarely see faulty gauges). If the pressure is still low, suspect worn crankshaft bearings. There is also a possiblity that the screen to the oil pump is clogged. This can be visually checked by removing the oil pan and cleaned.

There is an engine light on, it looks like an oil can, does that mean there is no oil in the car?


First, do not keep driving if the oil warning light is on or your oil pressure gauge has dropped. Stop the engine, let it sit for a few minutes, then check the oil level.
Don't ignore it. An oil pressure warning light (or low gauge reading) means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed. I hope this helps.

My oil pressure drops and warning light comes on when I stop or idle, but as soon as I give it gas it goes back up to normal again, I was told it's the sensor or else the engine would kill itself if it...


The proper way to determine what's going on in your engine is to install a temporary (or permanent) mechanical gauge. (yours is electro -mechanical) your oil pressure changes with engine rpm but at idle, it should not drop below 15psi (I don't accept less than 20). The gauge and light is set to come on at a pressure that is just a bit higher than the max low pressure so you have a chance to correct the cause without destroying the engine. (though sometimes even that repair can be expensive).
Since the gauge setup or having someone put a gauge on there costs more than a new sending unit for your current arrangement, I'd suggest you replace the sender and if you see identical readings, then you need to have the oil pan removed and the crankshaft bearings and oil pump looked at.
Doing nothing can cost you an engine.

you are low on oil in the engine- brake hard and watch the pressure gauge it will drop also---you are at least 3 qt's low.

If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

2002 jeep wrangler oil pressure gauge drops


When the gauge is at 0, is there any noise from the engine (tick, knock etc?) I would have someone put a mechanical gauge on there and read true pressure.Your driving pressure seems OK but if the low number is "real" something is wrong!

Oil light comes on


this is an oil pressure light, most likely the sending unit for the gauge is defective,but I do recommened a shop hook up a oil press test gauge and verify u do't really have low oil pressure, then if that tests ok replace the sending unit on the engine.
