Bmw 330ci. Oil light after start.

Hello. Im always getting the oil-light shown after maybe 5 sec after i startet the car, it maybe shows for around 5-10sec, then goes away. Someone know what this is?

Thinking maybe its the oil level sensor?

If the light is yellow, that's correct.

Oil light question gets asked quite a bit; here's some useful information re: oil light behavior/part numbers/DIY/etc.: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...7#post16363287.

Recommend going with a Hella (OEM) sensor, and Amazon consistently has the best price at $40 with free shipping: http://www.amazon.com/ENGINE-SENSOR-...ANYJMJSI2UDVST.

If you check your oil level manually, just wait until the next oil change before you replace the sensor.

DIYs help you save money with repairs; let www.bmwpnpc.com help you save money with the parts.
