Generally speaking low oil pressure is due to excessive wear inside your engine, unless the pressure sender, wiring or gauge is faulty, the only way to fix this problem is to replace or rebuild the engine.

Will low oil pressure on an 89 Chevy Celebrity prevent it from starting?

No I would not expect low oil pressure to keep the engine from starting. Depending on how low the pressure is it might not be a good idea to run the engine much until the low oil pressure problem is corrected. Since there is no gauge built in on that year Celebrity I assume that the oil pressure light is on. Low oil pressure can be caused by a number of problems including failing oil pump, clogged oil filter, low on oil or loose bearings as well as a failing oil pressure sensor. When the pressure sensor fails it tends to show low oil pressure and if that is the cause then replacing the sensor can fix the problem. If it were my car I would first hook up an oil pressure gauge and find out what the pressure is before I attempted to fix the problem. Pressure should be at least 30 psi.

How do you fix the oil warning light on a 2002 vw golf?

Low oil pressure is serious. The first thing to do is make sure that oil pressure is actually correct. If the pressure is ok, then the most common causes of an oil light staying on is either a loose connection at the oil pressure sensor or a faulty sensor itself.

There is no oil pressure in your 1997 ford ranger how do you fix this?

If you indeed have no oil pressure, then the oil pump is probably bad. But saying that, are you sure you have no pressure? The oil pressure sending unit can be bad or disconnected. Also the pressure gage can be bad. An oil pressure test will verify if you indeed have no pressure. Not sure of the engine size but I know on a 2.3l the timing belt can be suspect to although rare if the engine is running ok, and if there is truly no oil pressure you should hear the lifters banging/ and or bottom end knock.

I would try the cheapest route first Go but a oil pressure sender to see if that fixes the problem
