1991 Toyota MR2 Q&A

1991 Toyota MR2 Question: ORANGE OIL LIGHT STAYS ON

WHEN I START MY MR2 THE IGNITION LIGHTS GO OUT INCLUDING THE RED OIL LIGHT SYMBOL AFTER A FEW SECONDS A ORANGE OIL LIGHT SYMBOL COMES ON THE HANDBOOK SAYS TO CHECK OIL LEVEL OIL LEVEL IS OK AS ARE ALL FLUIDS -
Answer 1
If the orange oil level light is on but the engine oil level is OK it is likely to be a defective oil level sensor in the engine oil pan but get this checked out. All cars should have a low oil level light. The older Toyota Previa's had an oil reserve tank that used to automatically top up the engine oil level, what a great idea. -
