its going to blink there is no oil circulating when the machine is off… If it blinks while running then you got issuesWhen I switch the key on the oil light blinks consistently until I start the engine. Should it do that or is there a problem? It has plenty of oil. It runs fine also. Just wondering if the light blinking was normal. Any input is welcome and appriciated.
What if the oil light is on solid and wont start?Mine does the same thing im pretty sure its normal. I think it indicates low oil pressure but there cant be any pressure when the engine is off so it flashes. thats what i think it is
Change the oil and filter and fix the leak first. Oil light will be on until the pressure is high enough to trip the pressure switch off. Sometimes just cranking won't do it. Sounds like you need to do some testing of the fuel pump, kill switch, coil power, CPS and a full service on the old girl.There's a slow oil leak also.
