Hopefully i can help..


There could be few things that may cause this.But first you should check your current oil level and see if the level is correct.if not and low then top up with the required oil.with car preferably on level ground and see if that improves anything..another possibilty could be the condition of the oil and the oil filter which maybe it maybe worth trying and full engine oil change at the same time maybe try Forté Motor Flush to flush out any possibile blockages.after thats done then the correct spec oil and filter can be added..if the light still appears after all that..then it possible this could be a oil pressure sensor fault or failing oil it may best having the system pressure tested to see if the pump is working as it should..So it would'nt be advisable to ignore the problem as if the pump is failing then you could seize the engine up due to lack oil circulation..

Not had chance to try it yet but getting it booked in for an oil change soon, hopefully it will sort it. Oil level is high enough.
