This common on duel fuel cars that may not have had regular running on petrol. If the injectors are not being used they foul up, giving a poor spray pattern or not spraying much at all. To fix this the best way is to remove the injectors and have them professionally cleaned. Cost is around $20ea

i can't believe how many people are righting it off as 'just a wiring problem'

YOUR OIL LIGHT IS COMMING ON put a known good gauge on it and check it. you would be a fool not to. might cost you a few dollars and chances are it will be ok. but if it's not you f**k your engine you'll be pretty p****d off about being a tight a***

well chances are the wiring is at fault, the light comes on then flickers then goes away, that dosen't happen unless a - oil pump is f**ked, b - wiring, c - sender/switch/gauge rooted .
is the car doing this at a low rpm, ie - 700 or under rpm?

does it really mater if it flickers or only some times comes on??
it the oil light for s**t sake. oil is the single most important thing to your engine.
if it comes on ever, check what oil pressure you have, it's not hard and i might one day save your engine. the other thing i don't understand is why
ELRaiser kept driving the car with the oil light on.


by the way, you don't have to explain to a mechanic about why oil lights come. and yeah you got it on your 'a' reason. a f**k oil pump. could very well be the problem. and because it's the one that will cuase the most damage its the first one that should be checked

settle down, no need to lose oil pressure over it!
im just saying it COULD be VARIOUS things.
i had an xf, the oil light came on all the time, we hooked a gauge up to it, and it never dropped down low.
i re-wired it, got a new sender, and that fixed the problem.
i totally agree with you about the light coming on, if my engine or oil lgiht came on, i'd switch it off right away.

i agree i COULD be any number of things. BUT every one just went straight to saying don't worry it'll just be wiring.
and that is the wrong way to do things.

it isnt the wrong thing, you check it all out at once and do the job properly.
the wiring in many of my known cases has been the fault.
