WHY DOES OIL LIGHT COME ON WHEN BRAKING? SINCE ...
2009 Pontiac Vibe
Why does oil light come on when braking? (Since about one month ago.)

COULD IT BE THAT YOUR OIL LEVEL IS LOWER THAN IT SHOULD BE?
SEE-UNS HOW YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL PRESCRIBES CHECKING THE OIL'S LEVEL AND THE COOLANT LEVEL ONCE A WEEK
. SURELY YOU CAUGHT THIS.A WEEK AGO?
COULD BE A FAULTY SENDING UNIT.I DOUBT IT'S THE OIL PUMP
INSTALLING A TEMPORARY MECHANICAL OIL PRESSURE GAUGE MIGHT EASE YOUR MIND ON WHAT THE "REAL PRESSURE" IS AN IS IT WITHIN ACCEPTABLE SPECS
BUT BACK TO MY 1ST HUNCH---YOUR OIL MAY BE LOW---"BRAKING" SLOSHES IT AWAY FROM BEING PICKED UP BY THE OIL PUMP---YOUR ENGINE STARVES FOR OIL. THIS IS NOT A GOOD THING!
LET US KNOW WHAT YOU FIGURE OUT
