Low Oil Pressure

Unread post by Guest » Mon Apr 26, 2021 4:36 pm

When I turn my ignition to acc the dash reads low oil pressure. The oil light is not on and doesn't come on at all. There is no indication of low oil. The car runs great and makes no obvious low oil related sounds like ticking or clacking. Got different answers online like possible oil sending unit, possible camshaft sensor unit. I don't have a diagnostics device so no codes available. Any ideas?

what is the year, make, model and engine of your vehicle? Some Fords have a gauge for oil pressure but it's really a switch. If you get a message that the oil pressure is low, does it actually say "low oil pressure"?

I would have the oil pressure checked manually. And check it after the engine is at normal running temperature.

you said that you don't have code reader so no codes. Is the check engine light on but you don't know what the codes are or is the check engine light off?
