1996 Corsica 2.2L Oil Light Comes On at Idle

07-05-2010, 05:56 PM
I have a 1996 Chevrolet Corsica with the 2.2L motor. I notice that after it runs for a bit, every time I come to a stop light or whenever it idles, my oil light comes on (my oil change light, NOT the low oil level light). But right when I get on the gas, the light goes off. I have changed the oil and filter and I don't know what would cause it to come on at idle but turn off when going.

Anyone have the same issue, and maybe anyone know what the problem is? I think it's either the oil pump, or maybe the oil sending unit, but I want to be sure. And if it's any one of those things, where is it located?
