Q: I have an oil leak and a low oil pressure light on.

asked by on

The low oil pressure light on my car is on, The car is also leaking oil.

Sounds like it could be the oil pressure sensor. Have a technician test the sensor to determine if it needs to be replaced. I definitely would not drive it until that is checked because you could do damage to the vehicle if it has no oil pressure.
