Should i worry about the oil light
#1
So i recently changed the oil in my mustang and i noticed today that the oil light is on in the dash cluster. Yesterday it was only coming on when i was idling and now it kicked on and stayed on after about 3 miles of driving. I have aftermarket gauges and when riding around it has the oil at 60 and the engine temp at 200 like always. Should i just ignore the light because its probably just a faulty sensor?

Mine did same thing. My mechanical gauge says 40-60 so I unplugged idiot light.

The hole in the end gets clogged sometimes, pull it, and clean it before buying another one...could save you a buck or two.

That link shows the unit for the stock electrical gauge. The one for the idiot light is here:
