I was on the way to the beach today and on 95 i noticed that the oil light had come on. I pulled off to check it out and I had no leaks around the intake, nothing leaking down below, I just changed the oil before the mod day, and it was still full of clean oil. I looked in back of the motor and saw that there was some oil around the base of the plug for the sender to the oil light.

I have NO idea whats going on, she runs perfect without any noises what-so-ever:scratch: scratch . Could the sender just be bad and sending info to the comp. to put the light on? It goes out when I rev it at idle but comes back on when i take my foot off the gas.

Any ideas???? Question Question

If your level is still the same and you don't have leaks I would say the obvious place to start would be a new oil level sensor and then go from there if the light comes back.

Figued that but I'm a little paranoid that one of my intake manifold gaskets didnt set the way it should have. I'll do the sensor though.

But then you'd have a nice oil/coolant mix.

Good point. At least it'd be better than my friends oil/gas mix in his camaro.

I;ll see if I can get the sensor tomorrow morning.
