Best Answer

Cam sensors typicaly either work or they don't. While a heat related problem could be causing your engine to die, if it's not showing a computer code, that's probably not the issue. Check the computer codes. If you don't have anything showing, it's probably something related to fuel. The computer won't show a code if the vehicle runs out of fuel, so if it doesn't show a fault code, it could be a faulty fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter.

Why is the oil warning light keeps coming on after driving several hours on your 1994 VW Golf CL?

Could be a leaking oil pressure sensor. High pressure sensor is located on the housing above the oil filter and the low pressure sensor is located on the driver side of the engine block. If you see oil leaking around either sensor then this may be the problem. They are not difficult or expensive to replace as they simply bolt on and can be purchased at your local dealer for around $10. Your low pressure sensor could be faulty. There is a high pressure sensor and a low pressure sensor on your car. After driving, heat and movement of oil throughout the engine are the cause. However, the sensor could be faulty thus reading the low pressure being too low (like at low rpms and you have to gear down on a manual to get the rpms up and the light disappears). Shouldn't cost more than 80 bucks to have a mechanic replace it. Just make sure they know which is the LOW pressure sensor.

Why Low oil pressure light came on while driving a 2001 Quest Nissan van?

The oil pressure could be low. Or the oil sensor could be bad. The vehicle should have a fresh oil change if its anywhere near time, and the oil pressure tested. The sensor is easy to replace if its bad.


Will faulty oil pressure sensor harm engine?

No, a defective oil pressure sensor will not harm the engine as long as the oil pressure is what it should be. However, how do you know what the pressure is if the sensor is bad. Replace the sensor so that you can receive a warning if the oil pressure drops below what is optimum.

Where is the oil pressure sensor on a 2001 Lincoln Navigator?

Oil Pressure Sensor Testing 1. Test and verify the engine oil pressure. If no or insufficient pressure exits, oil pressure problem exits and gauge and sensor are operational, repair oil pressure problem. 2. Check the appropriate fuse before attempting any other diagnostics. 3. Unplug the sensor electrical hardness. 4. Using an ohmmeter, check continuity between the sensor terminals. 5. With the engine stopped, continuity should not exist. Ø The switch inside the oil pressure sensor opens at (6) psi or less of pressure. 6. With the engine running, continuity should exist. 7. If continuity does not exist as stated, the sensor is faulty.
