If your oil is not low and your oil light is flashing I recomend you find someone who can do an oil pressure test, those vehicles have been known to clog up the oil pickup screen and starve the engine for oil. if your car has the 2.0 liter engine I recomend 5w 30 oil its good for all temp ranges.

I got a 2004 pt criuzer my oil light started blinking on and off and started binging if i change my oil in it will it stop comeing on and stop the binging


I doubt changing the oil will make any difference.
The warning light is telling you the oil pressure is low, or the switch is failing.

If my low oil pressure light comes on for a sec does it mean it has low oil pressure or could it be the sensor


It should come on and go out while cranking to start. If it flashes while idling, you may want to have a mechanic put a pressure gauge on it. The fact that it goes out means the switch works.

Oil light flashing occasionally


It could be a faulty oil sending unit, but it would be advisable to have the oil preasure checked with a mechanical guage to determine if it is a sending unit or low oil preasure. Oil preasure low enough to allow the light to come on is low enough to possibly cause major engine damage.

Oil light comes on and "bings" when the tack shows 1000 rpm.


I have no idea how many miles are on the van but 1st lets talk about the oil lite, it is telling u that the engine has less than 10 PSI of oil pressure, this may be the pressure sending unit on the engine is defective, if it does have low oil pressure then severe damage to the engine bearings can result, the click is most likely the contacts in the starter solenoid are burnt, they act up more cold and give the click you hear. I have no idea about the steering issue, without hearing it is almost imposs to diagnose such concerns. In closing I highly recommned that you address the low oil pressure concern ASAP
