The oil pressure warning light is another dashboard light that lets you know there is an issue with the oil pressure system. This warning light looks similar to that of a genie lamp with oil coming from the spout. Although it isn't a warning light you may see often, it is one that should never be ignored and is very important to address as soon as possible.
What does this light indicate? It means that your engine isn't receiving normal oil pressure. This could be caused by low oil, and once an engine doesn't have oil, it won't run for much longer. The engine can quickly overheat and severe engine damage can occur. This is why it is so important to bring your vehicle into Carolina Car Care as soon as this light illuminates.
While the oil pressure warning light typically indicates that there is a low level of oil in the engine's crankcase, it can also indicate a leaky gasket or seal, worn valve guides, or piston rings or cylinders that are causing the engine to burn up oil.
As soon as you notice the oil pressure warning light turn on, bring your vehicle into the experts here at Carolina Car Care and we will ensure that your engine's oil is refilled and that any faulty parts are replaced to get you back on the road safely.
