I have noticed this problem several times especially when it is about time to change the oil. The oil warning light will come on when I make a really hard turn and then it will go off. I don't understand why it is dong this. The car is not leaking oil anywhere (at least I haven't noticed on my garage floor) and I know that I put enough oil in when I change the oil. I use synthetic 5W 40 but I used to use regular 20W 50 because of my mileage (over 100K). But it didn't matter because it use to do it with regular oil. Anybody else have this problem?

Re: Oil warning light (Jwchan)

Check your oil level regularly (every fill-up or every other fill-up). Your oil level is probably low, setting off your oil pressure sensor, because the oil is sloshing around it. VR6's burn oil more than they leak it.
