An engine oil light could point to bad engine oil level sensor. Or it could mean that your car is low on motor oil. Look, I get it. The little warning lights on your dashboard are easy to ignore, but you should pay attention them. They’re there for a reason, and the reason is usually something important. When those lights tell you that your car is running low on engine oil, check the oil level manually. If you are low, then it’s time for new oil. If you’re not low, then it’s likely time for a new sensor.
Whoa, that can’t be right… If you notice your oil level readings aren’t making sense, manually check oil levels to see if they’re where they should be. This is similar to what we just talked about with warning lights, so we’ll be brief. A busted-up engine oil level sensor might be a bit erratic. You might notice the sensor suggesting you’re low on oil one minute, and then have an ample amount later. That’s a bad sign. Or, as previously mentioned, you might notice that the sensor level and the actual level aren’t lined up, and that’s a sure sign.
Uh oh. Why is the car acting up? If you notice the ride is a little rough, noisy, or otherwise funky, it may be because the engine oil level is low. If the oil level is low, but the engine oil level sensor isn’t warning you about it, then…well, you can put two and two together here. I hope. Here’s a general rule to always follow with your car: If they’re driving funny, something is wrong, and that something should be addressed.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
Oil is the lifeblood of your car. Anything that has to do with it is pretty serious. Not knowing your engine oil level can actually end your car’s life. Go to Vegas if you want to gamble, but keep your car out of it. Get your engine oil level sensor replaced immediately.
