    Not my car btw, galfriend states she accidentally poured power steering fluid in to gas tank...! But I don't see where this would affect the oil pressure. She has changed oil and filter recently snd claims no oil consumption or leaks.

This could be a lot of things. How cold is it outside. Do you have the right type of oil. When was the last time oil was changed. And filter. Is filter plugged. Is there any metal on oil drain plug. Then if this is good it would be a good idea to put an oil pressure gauge on it to see how much pressure it’s actually making in case you have a oil pump that’s about to go. Then your engine will be screeed.

SOURCE: low oil warning light staying on oil level ok

would be best to have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to be sure you have oil pressure.
hopefully you just have a bad oil pressure switch this is located on oil filter adapter rt above filter

Toyota Avalon 2001 oil pressure light came on yesterday and I checked oil level and filled appropriately, cam on again as I was about half way home engine shut off before I could pull over, waited a few...


The warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
The problem could be the pressure switch, or you really could have low oil pressure.
Driving the car with low oil pressure will damage the engine.

My van is Toyota Hiace Dx & when i start my vehical in the Dashboard i can see a yellow color oil can, i want to know wht discribes that sign


The yellow symbol with a line under it means only to warn you if the engine oil level is low when its running. If its RED sign then this is your low engine oil pressure warning light.

Oil pressure low check engine light on but full of oil 2002 toyato echo


If replacing the oil pressure sensor doesn't fix it, then you need an oil pump.

Location of oil pressure sensor. light stays on all the time when power on. has oil and no knocks when running.


its located just above the oil filter.
This circuit is easy to test. When unplugged the light should go out. If the light stays on when un plugged the wire is shorted to ground somewhere.
Check this with the engine OFF.

Also make sure there is oil in the engine.

low pressure in the tranny, did you check the oil level in park? if so you might have to check it in gear with someone holding it on the brakes, then re-check... hopefully it isn;t the pressure solenoid.... $$$$$$.... they can be expensive, cheers!
