What could cause the low oil light to come on when the car is idling?

AnswerIf the engine is idling very low - oil pump may not generate enough pressure, causing light to come on. Make sure you have adequate oil, and that idle speed is correct. If this does not correct, possibly oil pump screen dirty It could also be the oil sensor is bad or leaking. This happened in my 1996 Chevy Corsica. I thought it was the oil pump, but it turned out to be just the sensor that needed to be replaced.

How do you check the speed sensor on 2012 Nissan Versa?

Locate the vehicle speed sensor of the vehicle mounted to the rear section of the transmission. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor. Remove the retaining bolt from the sensor mounting at the transmission, then pull the sensor out of the transmission. Place the sensor on a flat surface, then slowly turn the sensor gear by hand. Use the voltage meter to check for the pulsing AC voltage from 0 to 0.5 volts. If there is no voltage, the sensor could be defective. Replace the sensor by following the steps for removal in reverse order.
