Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

2 Answers

How can I cheat the Idle up? I'm getting a low oil pressure light at Idle, 800 RPM. I would like to increase the Idle to 1000 to keep from getting the light.

A guy worked on the car, rebuilt the head, ever since then after the car warms up, at Idle, 800 RPM I get a low oil pressure light. I changed the oil pressure sending switch. That's not the problem. I'm actually getting low oil pressure at Idle; so I would like to increase the Idle to a thousand RPM to keep from getting low oil pressure at Idle speed.

Totally wrong headed thinking,
what is correct, is measure the real pressure,
if wrong, then engine is doomed, fibbing to self and gauges, is over that top.
the IDLE SPEED is fixed in the PCM< , its no CARB
now since 1988, so, a wasted talking them.
if the pressure is low, what is your oil, 10w-30 , or 10w-40?
try this oil
or try a new oil sender some come on at 3psi.
so you thing having 2psi is good for your engine?
why not ask your mechanic to check the oil pressure,
and let truth win your life, and not try to hide real problems.\

lets do the list. its not hard, ever..
1: sender bad. (use a real gauge and win)
2; running 0w oil in a high mileage engine. you never said miles.
3: bad engine bearings. tops the list, crank or rod. the head has a oil restrictor there preventing a blown head from wrecking crank journals and there bearing shells.
4: bad pump, I BET NOT.
5: a defective oil filter, in that its clogged and the bypass is jammmed (bad) double dead. this.
6: low oil levels.
7: coolant in the oil. looks like milk.
8: gas in the oil, oil looks like water, and smells like raw gas.
9: some dork in Jiphpyboobs, put the wrong fluid in the engine.
can be anything there, due to nincompoop..status.....and such...
what we do is believe its real then prove other wise.
using TOOLS.

That wont work trying to adjust idle can be done on older cars with a carburetor or the older throttle bodies new vehicles trying to do it will set off check engine lights on most sensors sound more like oil worn out---oil filter or pump problem change oil and filter and do a flush ---and put in an additive such as lukas - royal purple etc---also why did head need replacing was oil pump tested

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.


You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

1999 chrysler sebring low oil pressure at idle


It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.

Have a reputable garage check the oil pressure with a manual oil pressure gauge. Very well may have worn internal parts, or weak oil pump. Thats the only way to know for sure.

Oil light with a line underneathe it, what does the light indicate?


Low oil, bad sensor, really low idle.
First check oil level.
then if oil level is ok, and oil light is still there, pay attention to idle has to be 750 to 850 RPM.

If idle ok, give gas to increase idle to more than 2000 rpm if light goes away you need a sensor called OIL PRESSURE SWITCH.

When stopped at lights oil light flashes.. My oil level is fine. What could it be?


this is a common sign of a bad oil pressure sender, but could also be caused by low oil pressure, a sender is cheap,but it"s always smart to do a pressure test first with a mechanical gauge,you can obtain a mechanical gauge from most automotive parts stores. then you"ll have to locate and remove the oil pressure sender and install the gauge you bought. make your test at warm idle you should have at least 25 psi below that you may very possible have worn engine bearings making it impossible for the engine to have any better oil pressure at idle. if you have 25 or greater psi of pressure at idle replace your oil sender and you"ll be back on the road

My 1999 pontiac grand am will idle low, but does not cut off.


Sounds like your oil pressure sensor may be faulty. Or your oil level is very low. Your engine should idle as low as 650 rpm without your light coming on.
