Re: 3.8 L engine. OIL LIGHT STAYS ON. New Oil (10W 30), New filter, New oil pressure switch. Berore I installed the switch, the adapter that it is screwed in to was cleaned. Also, before I put the new filter on I determined that the pump is working by leaving the filter off and turning the engine over and the oil came gushing out of the filter adapter. I put the new filter on and started the engine and the light came on. I noticed one other thing, as follows; I have always did my own oil changes and noticed that when you first start an engine up there are a few seconds before the oil pressure kicks in and the light could/would be on momentarily until that happens and then the light would go off. With the problem I'm having now, it seems that the light came on after the oil pressure kicked in, like it's reverse of what it should be.L Also, is a short a possibility.
have the same problem?
