The oil light comes on when there is no pressure. There is no pressure when the pump either cannot get oil to pump or has oil and will not pump it.

Get it checked before you do anything else. A engine running with no pressure is a cooked engine.

Had a faulty oil pressure sensor. The gauge pegged and wouldn't move. It was replaced three days ago and was working fine. Now today when driving it drops then rises and occasionally the oil light flickers...


You really need to check it with a oil pressure gauge. It would be a good idea to change the part again,it could be at fault even though it is new,cause it is having a different symptom .

My 2003 nissan xterra will not start. It started fine 30 minutes ago, now nothing. All of the electrical on the dash powers up. But as soon as I turn the ignition it loses all power.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. This sounds like a connection problem. Check your battery, clean the terminals, ends, and post. Make sure it is held down tightly. It is either a weak battery, alternator, or bad connection. If they check out, it may have to due with your ignition switch/starter. Check the connection first.

I need to change the break light on a nissan xterra 2003


I have never seen a car with a break light. Does it come on when the car breaks? See owners manual to change a stop light bulb that comes on when you step on the brakes.
