Q: Problem with oil light coming on on 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
the oil light comes on and the temp gauge goes about half way. Checked the oil level and it is fine. What could be the problem?

MY OIL LIGHT COMES ON WHEN I PULL UP TO A STOP SIGN......THEN AS THE RPM'S GO UP THE LIGHT GOES OFF.....2004 INTREPID........
Usually when oil light comes on at idle and goes off at higher rpm's, the problem is worn main crankshaft bearings, but could also be a weak oil pump.
the oil level sensor could be causing the problem, is the check engine light on? if it is i would get a diagnostic to see what the trouble codes are.
Hello , when does the oil light come on?? If it comes on while you are sitting at an idle , chances are good that you need a new oil pressure switch , witch is most likely next to or very close to the oil filter itself in the front of the engine block..
