The oil warning light has little to do with oil level other than the fact that without oil the engine cannot generate oil pressure. Babbit bearings, the type of bearing used in all internal combustion engines consist of a finely machined, perfectly cylindrical surface on a crankshaft or camshaft and a finely cast babbit bearing insert that fits into the engine block. During engine operation the oil pump creates pressure that is injected into rod, main and crankshaft bearings through oil "journals" that are through the block, allowing the pressurized oil to reach critical bearing surfaces. The babbit bearings have holes that align with the holes in the engine block. During normal engine operation, pressurized oil reaches the babbit bearings, supporting the crankshaft/camshaft and keeping the moving parts from actually touching. When oil pressure drops it is because the babbit surface has been partially worn away and oil leaks out past the bearing surfaces at a rate that is too high for the oil pump to maintain the pressure required for the engine to function as designed. Lower oil pressure is usually an indication of worn main or rod bearings. The solution is expensive. Thicker oil or an oil thickener can help reduce the rate at which the oil leaks past the bearing surfaces but these are only methods to squeeze a little more life out of an ailing engine. Select an oil with a higher viscocity number and you MAY be able to slightly raise the oil pressure.
Oil Pressure Warning Light ActivationThe oil pressure warning light activates from a pressure sensing switch in the engine oil lubricating system. When the oil pressure goes below a preset minimal safe pressure for the engine , the light is supposed to come on.The speed of the oil pump is directly proportional to the engine speed, and if the engine turns too slowly, then the oil pump turns too slowly, and the output volume of oil will be reduced.To my recollection, the most probable causes of activation of the low oil pressure warning light on deceleration of the vehicle are:The oil level in the crancase is LOW, orThe engine idle speed is set too low, and thus the oil pump output is low.
