I have a 2001 Monte Carlo. My low oil pressure light come on the other day and it did this a couple of times and it did not come on again until today. I went and got my oil changed thinking that was it. Well the light is still on. Does anyone know how to make the light go off & the dinging to quit? Thanks!

Yes, I sure did. I am not at all good at working on my car myself. I was just thinking maybe someone knew something else than what I read. Thanks!

Ok I been reading this post and think it also could my problem .... I have a 2000 Monte SS ... Memorial day I notice that my oil pressure gauge was going from 12 o clock at idle when I accelerate it seem to go up to 1210 if u know what I mean. I called my local repair guy and he claims its normal.I never noticed that before..I hooked up the portable comp and got no errors... Nor do I have any messages on the dash.. I did notice a few little drops of oil on the floor nothing major clean oil at that .. I took the ford out and wanted to see if that was normal yes it gos up but not as much as the monte is doing.... I also crawled under the car and found some oil on a few items ...I also noticed there a wire going to the oil pan with a plug going in to it that also had oil on it.... what is that part and any other info would be loved thanks Greg

How good is a Haynes manual at telling you how to access the lifter oil filter? I have the same issue on my 2007 Monte with a 3500. The low oil pressure light come on intermittently after driving for about 20 minutes and typically comes on while driving on the highway only. It normally shuts right back off immediately but might take up to 30-45 seconds. I just ran a half can of sea-foam through the old oil and after 175 miles I changed the oil and put in Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic along with the rest of the sea foam. It seamed to help but I am thinking that the oil is not draining back down to the pan properly. Another article I read mentioned that there is a filter for the lifters that can get clogged and I want to make sure the manual has good details before buying one. Thanks in advanced.
